Glitzy Batty Bat Bats

I'm way behind on Haloween nails.  Seriously.  But I guess that's what I get for getting off a ship late October, and then running around like a mad-woman interviewing at Salons.  Here's a set of Halloween nails that I did on my sister and I absolutely love them.  This is just a gel manicure using Gelish gel polish.   I started out doing your standard pH prep and foundation gel, followed by two coats of Tiki Tiki Laranga Orange.  I then coated the orange with loose orange glitter using a fan brush.  I topped that with two coats of Top It Off so that the glitter didn't feel gritty or textured.  In order to stamp the Bats on, I lightly buffed the ring fingers with a buffing block before stamping my image.  I do this so that I know it will stick, and that the top coat will adhere to the whole nail after stamping.  I stamped the bats using Konad Black stamping polish and Bundle monsters 2013 Holiday collection plate BM-H08.  I topped the ring fingers off with one coat of Top it Off, removed the tacky layer and my sister was reading to go!
