Fauxnad- A bevy of bats, click to make bigger!







Specs;
Essie- Where's the Soiree base
Overlay- China Glaze- Tempest
Full moon- OPI, The Ghostess With The Mostess
Haze around full moon and clouds- SpaRitual, She's a River
Fauxnad plates- H17 & H9
Essie- Where's the Soiree to stamp

Thumbs are already a couple of days old. Original fingernail art were silver stars that I wore for a day. I wasn't happy with them at all, but time wasn't with me that day, but I *had* to put something on my fingernails quickly.
Anyway, today, I re-did the 10 nails with my initial idea of bats across clouds. I think it turned out pretty good.

I could not, for the life of me, get a good photo of the full moons glowing in the dark.

Your manicure is fantastic. I love the design. How do you get that effect with all the colors? Love the bats. This is really clever and I love it!

Thank you!
The only thing that was difficult to work with was OPI Ghostess...
v streaky and lumpy.

So far, although the fauxnad plates are a bit flimsier, the images are crisp and easy to work with.
I like Konad...*loving* fauxnad. There are more choices with mixing images from different plates that are stylistically similar. Not so with Konad.

Oh, and because I probably wasn't clear- the initial fingernails with stars- I didn't like *not* because of the quality of stamp. I had wanted to do the cloud thing from the start- I just ran out of time- ergo- quicky stars...

~Lucy~ Thank you! Different color thing going on is from the Spa Ritual polish She's a River, layered over Tempest. They both have a flash to them.

Where did you get that image plate from? I found one on a German site that won't ship to the USA, and I found a French site that doesn't have the spooky plate I want! Please let me know, thanks :)
