Haunted Village

Hi Everyone! I tried sponging today for the first time. It was a lot of fun but extremely messy. I also thought it would be fun to throw in a white haunted house but I think it looks unfinished. I got this idea from a lot of nail tutorials and pictures that are floating around right now. I think the one that inspired me the most was from here:  I can't believe she free handed her nails, they are amazing. I do not freehand. I used nail stamping plates to get my images. =)

This is what I used:

China Glaze - Urban-Night (Metro Collection) This was my base color and you can't see it. I used it to make my other colors more opaque.

China Glaze - Grape Juice (Summer Days Collection) I sponged on this color first. I'm also holding the bottle in the pictures. I consider this a must have.

China Glaze - Recycle (ECollection) I used this to sponge on the ground.

OPI - Skull & Glossbones (Pirates of the Caribbean Collection) I also sponged on this color for the lighter parts of my sky.

China Glaze - Happy Go Lucky (Up & Away Collection) I used my dotting tool to put in the windows lights and other details. I learned that a toothpick or a detail brush (mine is coming any day now) would work better for something so small. <=)

Konad Special Polish in Black and White for stamping with Bundle Monster Plates #213 & #224.

I've been using Poshe Top Coat lately and really like it. If you ever spot it (I got mine at Ulta) pick it up. It dries within minutes.

Thanks for reading!
