Going batty fauxnad

Hi Kids!
Here's my first Halloween inspired fauxnadicure of the season...more than a little late according to my Goth Card. For a while there, I was afraid the men in black coats would revoke my card, however, since my mani is kind'a cool, I'm confident that my card is safe for the time being.

This fauxnadicure was really hard to photograph, so be prepared to be bombarded with more pictures than I should posting. As always, they're clickable for the ginormous size.

*Base was an old Maybelline Express Finish, Fiji Plum, 3 coats. This polish doesn't look plum at all, it's really a dusty, berry red with red flashing to gold glitter.
*Moon is Nfu-Oh #61 applied using a reinforcer on middle nail
*One coat layer of Ruby Kisses in Fuzzy Navel...a sheer, orange jelly.
*While the layer was still wet, I brushed on and swirled a dark franken in random places. I was going for the illusion of dark clouds in a red night sky.
*Since the night sky is always brighter around the Moon, I ringed it with China Glaze Orange Knockout and also added it between the clouds, concentrating most of the intensity on the middle nail and lightly radiating it out to the inside edges of my index and ring nails. Thumb and pinky are the furthest from the Moon, so I left them darker.
Bat images applied using a Color Club mini in black.
*Plates; T13, H17, BM13.
*Stamped (the solid) witch riding her broom on my thumbs
