13 Days of Halloween Day 12: Skeleton

Its day 12!  I feel like we flew with this challenge!  Well, today is skeletons and I wanted to do something to make up for my boring full moon.  I used Cult Nails Nevermore for my base (yes, again!).  On my accent finger, I did a skull.  I used white acrylic paint for this again, its much easier to use over black and easier to control.  I did the shape of the skull, then went back in with Nevermore for the details.  It bled a little when I put my topcoat on, but nothing too horrible.  On my thumb, I did bones.  I love how this looks!  The acrylic paint allowed it to look more crisp.  A bunch of people asked me what decal I was wearing, too.  Haha I was like 'Oh none!!'...sorry tooting my own horn again, I just really love them.  On the rest of my fingers (Elena, you'll like this!) I used Pretty & Polishes Them Bones.  Certainly keeping up with the themes!  This is another polish from her Halloween Collection, and I really like it!  Its supposed to be a black jelly, though I layered it on top of Nevermore.  It has almost silver, but really they are white, looking glitters in hex, shard and bar.  Its so cool, and it applied nicely.  I'm really loving the mash up of this.  What do you guys think of it?
