Mysterious Curse with Monster Mash

**all items purchased by me

It's been a bit since I've done a nail post so I thought today would be a good day to share one...although going through my computer files I came across a lot that I really don't like the way they look in pictures.  Getting a new camera really changes your perspective on what you thought were good photos.  Maybe I should do a "recreate mani month" for April where I go through and re-do all my manis that I never posted.  That idea's got potential; I'd just have to get better at posting nail looks more timely.

Anyway...I came across a nice combo that was actually an idea I had done for my ABC challenge but didn't like it enough to use it then.  This actually looks like it could have been perfect to wear on St. Patrick's Day.

If I remember correctly, this is 2 coats of Orly Mysterious Curse over a ridge filler with Out the Door to speed things up.
I did end up using Mysterious Curse for the challenge under a different polish, so if you want to read my thoughts and review of it, then click here.

Moving on to the sparkle part of my mani.  On my ring fingers, I did a full coat of Orly Monster Mash.  On my thumb I did a thick line going straight across, while on my index and pinkie fingers I did thick diagonal stripes and my middle got a thick line going straight down.
Orly Monster Mash (like all the other Flash Glam FX glitter toppers) needed a good shaking/mixing since the glitters settle during storage.  The base is ever so slightly tinted so it did darken the base polish a bit.  Its glitters are hex, tiny particles and small bars.
I'm not really sure what I was going for when I applied Monster Mash the way that I did.  I must have just felt like playing around.

Do you ever just play around with polishes but turn right around and take them off to do something else?
