Dr. Franken-Skull Glow Nails

Just love image plate m7 for the little skull. It's a tad goofy & a tad sweet. So here are some Halloween inspired nails. I used a combo of plates, including one from the new Boo! Kit. The polishes I used are the new OPI mini's. This purple glows in the dark! SPOOOKY!
Here is what you will need:
1. purpleish base color I used OPI mini from the kit below.
2. black color for tips.
3. konad black SP
Plates m1, m7, & m13

Here's how to do it.
1.Paint base coat.
2. Paint tips black. I first attempted to konad the tip (this glow polish has some adhesion issues...so if you plan to konad the tips, I recommend you apply a clear coat first over the glow base to help the konad image transfer) but has some issues. I usually freehand tips because it is always easier & faster for me. It is also more predictable. As much as I love Konad...the french tip plateis useless to me!
3. Apply the little skull to all fingers except the pinki (unless you have a wide nail, it probably will not fit) I skipped my ring finger because it too is too small.
4. Stamp the shoelace design (one i thought i'd never use!) abstractly around the skull, to give it a Frankenstein look. Add small spider from m1 where ever you can or to fill "bald" areas.
There you have it! Your very own freaky, franken-skull nails. the bonus is that they glow in the dark!

You are so good! I love how creative you are and how you can just pull all the designs together from different plates. I'd never think of the stuff you do. I'm so jealous of your creativity.

Jessica...xoxo
Lucy, i know....Like scangie, I tried FOREVER! It just wont photograph! I held it under a light to "charge"it. turned off the lights. It glowed, got my camera ready with no flash. I could see it in the viewfinder...but when i depressed the button to focus, the red light must "de-activate" (?) the glow. So I tried to focus in the light...but that red light always comes on before the shot....and i swear it does something to the glow....i had to recharge my nails everytime! the red light made them stop glowing...not only in the picture....but in person. WIERD!!! HAW?
