Just a little fun with stamping and glow in the dark, started first with a two coat base of OPI DS Magic, which I had to take pictures of all on its own because it’s just that purdy with the blue/purple finish –

Then I used essence Choose Me!, a teal sort of glitter number, to sponge in the bottom part of the nail.  Followed that with 2 coats of the Fantasy Makers Glow in the Dark polish (which lightened the pretty OPI a lot, booooo) and finished it up by stamping and drawing in some bits using Kleancolor Black with image plates SH02 and BM-224, plus a couple of hilights on my brokedown building for light effects.

    I love this! I was considering trying something similar (down to the glowing topcoat), but you knocked it so far out of the park that I’m sure my attempt would fall pathetically flat. S’okay, though. I forgive you. ; )

    Damn girl-do you ever sleep?!?

    I really love the design of the Halloween nails! Were the stamping done using Konad plates? (Wondering since they don’t look familiar to me at all…)

    OMG, that’s so cool!

  11. the nerd says:

    Thanks ladies!

    Aren, pffffttttttttt girl, you are STILL on the field, play ball! :-D I want to see your idea, do ittttt!

    Fingers….. yes. Yes I did. :-) The construction across the street and their weird schedule are screwing up mine a little bit. Good thing my boss is pretty understanding! Oh wait that’s me…

    Mercedes, the house came off of one of the Bundle Monster plates (that’s the BM-224 one) — the cat and the witch came off of this no-name plate I got off of Amazon. I really, really wish this stuff was labeled better because I”m SURE there’s a company name somewhere in the mix, but both the packaging and the Amazon link where I got it leave this tidbit off, so we’re just going with “no name”. Here’s the link for the set I ordered though:
