Green Halloween inspired nail art

I paint my nails nearly every single night, but let me tell you, the nail art ideas don't always flow!  Some nights I sit there with just base coat painted on my nails with absolutely no clue what to paint.  This mani started out like that, and just evolved into this.

I first decided I would do something Halloweeny, and then thinking about the Halloween colours (in my head they are orange, purple, green and black) I chose green.  I did a coat of Ulta3 Emerald Inten-city, but that didn't lead me to any great inspiration.  Next I brightened it up a bit and added two coats of Contrary Polish West Bottoms.  This not only gave it a gorgeous shimmer, bit it also glows in the dark.

Next, I dug through my draws looking for some decals or stamping plates to inspire me.  That's where I spotted these textured Ulta3 nail stickers.  I liked that each nail sticker had a circular gap in a different location on each nail, and then I thought I could fill in the gap with a different Halloween themed stamp.  The spider and bat are from a Bundle Monster plate, the cat from Konad plate M91 and the witch and pumpkin are from Messy Mansion MM22.

Not my best work, but still and interesting outcome.
