Is this possible?

I am a Nail Technician and have been considering competing in nail art competitions. I have a simple airbrush kit and I have been racking my brain trying to think of something that hasn't been done on nails before.

With my husband being a car buff, I was wondering if it would be possible to airbrush ghost flames on nails?
I have no idea where to start, what equipment I would need, if what I have is feasable or what paint I could use, seeing as how this would be sucha small scale.

Can anyone point me in teh right direction??

I would say try using thinned down lacquer which is about what nail polish is anyways. I know this sounds ridiculous but try a HotWheels site. These guys rebuild and customize them and add flames, etc, with different types of paint that does not build up thick.

My father has a bait and tackle business, he hand and air brushes thousands of small shiny spinner type lures, makes up his own templates with 3-M type paper, uses water proof lead free fast dry urethane and enamels, the paints are available in a large array of colors and in small quantities ( about the size of Testors model paints).
