MoYou Halloween Contest: Forest Fright

Let me start by saying that when I bought my recent MoYou London Enchanted plate, I had a COMPLETELY different vision on how to use it. It all revolved around cuteness, soft pastel shades and lots of matte top coat. But then I spotted a 'Cute Halloween' contest...

There was no way I could say no to that! The competition is hosted by MoYou London and the idea behind it is simple: create nail art that's Halloweeny but cute. And let's face it, what can be cuter than tiny, fluffy forest friends? Exactly.

I even attempted a homemade decal which I don't do very often...or ever. I can make them fine I just can't apply it without it creasing around the edges. I usually wait for my decals to dry completely but I'm not sure that's a good idea. They become very rigid and I struggle to apply them nicely. Well the decal gods were surely watching over me this time! This one applied so well! I think the fact that the decal was just a tiny bit tacky when I peeled it off might have had something to do with that too;) 

I picked up the stamp using Konad black stamping polish. I then filled in the raccoon using a grey Miss Sporty and randomly applied Models Own Flip Flop and Nails Inc. Queen Victoria Street over the leaves. If there were any gaps I filled them in using Sinful Show Off.

On the rest of my nails I created gradients. I used Models Own Flip Flop and Nails Inc Queen Victoria Street for the green reciprocal one. I was so happy with it I just wished it showed better in the pictures! I feel like you can't see the bright leaves at the bottom but they're very visible in real life.

On my middle finger I used Models Own Beach Bag and Beach Hut to create a gradient and the same MoYou Enchanted plate I used on all of my nails.

I simply love these nails! They're sweet but I used a typical Halloween palette to make them a bit creepy. What do you think? Are you with me on this?
