#52weeknailchallenge: halloween

Happy Halloween!! I've been wanting to use the mansion image on my one stamping plate for so long and I thought that this year is the year.

I started with a quick coat of Rimmel rock the metal. And by quick I mean a coat just to cover the nail, no matter if there's streaks or bald patches. Hence no swatch. I then did a gradient over it with Essence black is back at the cuticle, Tip Top stormy sky, TT moonshine and TT armourplate.
I then stamped the witch and bats using my essence black stampy polish from plate QA26. The mansion's windows I coloured in with Essence Andy, you're a star.
The ghost is from plate HN04-A that was gifted to me by Heather. It was stamped with essence's stampy polish in white.
I was actually disappointed by the mani, because later that very day, the top coat peeled off at the tips leaving a grey gritty coat behind. I think it was caused by armourplate, because it bubbled on some of my nails. And not bubble as in those little air bubbles, it caused bumps! 

Oh well I still wore it for a couple of days. What do you think? Despite the peeling and bubbling I still liked it.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Awesome! I'm not that much into Halloween but I would definitely rock these nails myself :)
