"Fumsmusings" has posted hundreds of makeup and special effects tutorials on Youtube, including this one on creating the ragged fingernails of a corpse. It's obviously useful if you're doing any kind of undead costume for a live action event, but the technique would be ideal for prop use. Mummified hands are a perennially popular occult artifact. Most of them look less than convincing because the fingernails are added as an afterthought and look too flat. This approach would go a long way towards making a believable reproduction.
