Ghostly TAPS

Happy Moooonday - another Halloween themed mani coming atcha!  I was hemming and hawing about what I could do for Day 6 - Ghosts/Goblins of datyorkloves Nail-aween Nail Art Challenge and I'm pretty stoked with what I came up with.

I decided to pay homage to one of the scariest shows on television - Ghost Hunters - The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS)!!  The hubby got me addicted to this show and I was quite the skeptic until the episode where they were outside exploring some sort of castle or something and a ghost pulls on Grants jacket and you can actually see the jacket being pulled by nothing - it's pretty creepy!  We haven't watched this lately, for some reason we always miss the  new episodes and there is no way I'm watching that show alone!!  Plus, who doesn't love Tango and Steve?!?  I used the show's shirts that I got my hubby as the inspiration - I hope you can catch the creepy ghost in the background!
