Fauxnad crackle nails

My originial idea for these crackle stamped nails was green cat eye rub ons. I had 2 nails looking cool, when the rub-ons failed to apply properly...probably due to some excess oils on my nails and the dexterity issues I have when it gets cold outside. As careful as I was in taking them off, I tore up the polish on both thumbs. Not wanting to waste a decent fauxnadacure, I covered them with the largest rub-ons I had- Cute ghosts. Not my cuppa-tea, really, but it worked in covering the mess. I also had trouble applying the ghosts, and had to touch up places with an angle brush and black polish. Next time I do rub-ons, I'll get help from dh or my daughter, Amber.

Anyway I really love this crackle image! Here's what I used;
Base- Color Club, Where's The Soiree?
Overlay- Sally Hansen, Black Diamond
Fauxnad plate H22
Stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, Lickety-Split Lime
Ghost rub-ons have a layer of Nina Ultra Pro, Molten Opal
2 coats Seche
