Ghost mani-not a total failure!

Hmmm, This mani was awesome-until I stamped little ghosties on it! I started out with 2 coats of a gray franken that I put a bit of color-morphing pigment into. You can't really see it though, but I liked the finished polish anyway.
Here we go...pretty gray with an almost undetectable hint of blue glimmer...
 Alrighty then...pretty but too plain for me, hehehe. I wanted to get a light stamp that would sort of be a subtle background...should have stopped there. The part where this is not a total failure is that I discovered Orly Golden Halo is a rocking stamping polish! I have hated this polish since I put it on my nails, but I couldn't bring myself to toss it.
Ignore my lousy stamping, hairy cuticles and check out the gold lines under the crappy ghosties.....

The gold stamped lines looked AMAZING over the grey. Should have stopped there...but at least I have found a great new stamping polish. This stuff is so sheer I could never wear it on its own, but is like gilding your nails, the gold stands out so much!

Gah....I have to get some of the AHA cuticle cream. I have heard a lot of people go on about Poshe...what do YOU use? I use a mixture of oils on my cuticles, but obviously the hairy hang-nails are getting out of least on a few fingers. They are tiny enough that I miss them until I look at my pictures....

Other then that, very good blog!
