Another Halloween Mani

I recently picked up Different Dimensions Smashing Pumpkins over at Missi Barry's Etsy shop and decided to do a Halloween mani using's what I came up with!

Started with a base of two coats of OPI Guy Meets Gal Veston. 

Added Different Dimensions Smashing Pumpkins.  This is one coat.

While one coat had some interesting glitter, I decided to add a second coat for more glitter interest, then topped with SV.

Stamped using black Konad special polish using images from fauxnad XL K (spider on index), BM209 (hat on middle), T29 (pinky), T23 (web on thumb and cat on ring) and SdP 76 (bats randomly placed).  Please note that I may not have every single image of what I stamped or the exact polish over for this pix or others for the next little while....I kept all this information on the notepad on my iPhone but a resent mishap resulted in having to reset the phone one day last week...and I lost all my notes, contacts, pictures, etc.  So while I'll try to either remember what I used, or try to go back and find the images, I may simply not remember.  Unfortunately, this holds true for about the 30 manis I have in archives.  *sigh* 

Added a few random dots using CND yellow as well as added yellow accent to the hat, cat and ghost dude on the pinky, whatever his name may be. The Grim Reaper, maybe?

Added a few more dots using CND Eclectic Purple.

Topped with SV to finish.

Here's a bottle shot of DD Smashing Pumpkins.  As described on Etsy:

"Smashing Pumpkins is a glow in the dark glitter bomb! It glows orange in the dark (not as intense as some other colors, but still very bright!) It has black hexes in a couple different sizes, orange hexes and iridescent color shifting glitters."

After I discovered it glowed in the dark, I took a couple pix to share a day or so later. 

And another pix.  Unfortunately, no matter how much I tried, I wasn't able to get a clearer pix than this. 

Want to hear a funny story regarding these glow in the dark pix? When I went to take the pix, I thought, OK, pix for blog, better moisturize my cuticles for the camera so I did....only to think....why?!?...they are glow in the dark pix!! But I hope you can see my cuticles are well moisturized! lol!
