Take color icing whichever color you prefer (black looks good) and squeeze small amount where you want the nail then place a almond sliver on top and press down so that the icing comes out a little around the nail bed and sides, it looks great as it looks gross! Very easy, you may just have to play with the amount of icing you want to ooz around nail!

If you can't use nuts, try this, take a candy corn and slice it in half the long way so you have two long, wide pieces with one flat side. Then press it on the end of the finger flat side down (wide end toward the finger obviously) the way you'd have done the nut. Then, you can use food dye to 'paint' the nails, or leave them tri-colored for a festive look!

How about if you just roll out gumpaste really thin and cut out finger nail shape (oval). You can even use you ball fondant tool to thin out the edge alittle, and dust the edges with a little peach coloring...

Thank you all.I ended up using melted tosstie rolls and shaped them in a nail form. They turned out great! Thanks again for all your help.
