Haunted House Mani (pic heavy)

This has got to be the most Kick-butt mani I have ever done! I have also tagged on some other pics at the end for fun.

On to the nails!! I used 2 coats of a Finger Paints orange frost that has a cool greenish duochrome. I haven't worn it in years, because I have only recently discovered what huge fun nail art can be :0)

After the FP layers, I sponged on Quirius Eggplant from this mani. Then for kicks and giggles, a little China Glaze Frostbite on the tips. After that, I was inspired to slap on a layer of Pure Ice Heart Breaker so it looked like this:


Freaking awesome at this point, in my opinion...almost left it that way!!
BUT.....I had this great idea to use bits and parts of the new Bundlemonster plates. I used the church/house, and parts of the pumpkin/vines and tiny little bats, lol! I used Wet N Wild Black to stamp...
I had to pull out my DSLR to take the next pictures, because the haunted house is hard to see....


I TOTALLY love how this turned out...my thumb and my middle finger have the same designs on both hands---so awesome. I can see this will be very distracting until I am forced to take it off, lol!!

So on to some other pics I wanted to share. I am a really crafty person and I wanted to make a special pincushion out of wool for a family member that is a quilter/sewer/gardener. This is it....so cool I am selling some of them, too!
Also, I was able to go out exploring on some 4-wheelers with my husband on Monday afternoon and talked him into taking a picture of me  It was a fun afternoon, but too short. I love Autumn, but I am still not ready for winter here in the mountains, hehehehe.....

These turned out so great, my hat's off to ya! I'm glad you go the plates, and that you're doing such great stuff with them -- go twirl your fingers in everybody's face so they can delight in your awesomeness! The pincushion is super cute too :)

Buzzwheedle-Thanks so much... The 4 wheelers are very popular here, wonderful way to explore the dirt roads and mountains here.
Nail Nerd-you are So funny!! I did just that, heehehehe! I caught a few people eying my nails trying to figure out how I did them. Thank-you for your comment on the pincushion...now I must boogie and finish up the other 3!

I love the mani, and the sponged base is such an awesome color combo! I've never been on a 4-wheeler like that, but it sure looks like fun :)

ABOP-it went outside my normal color comfort zone, but I was really happy how it turned out.Lots and lots of good compliments on it. Thanks so much, and the 4-wheeler IS fun, but I don't go very fast, lol...How can you enjoy exploring if you are zooming along?!
