Halloween Stamping

I've really wanted to do Halloween nails pretty much every single day this month, but I've just been feeling so uninspired when it comes to actually doing some... So I just went for some stamping today to make things a but easier. I also dug out my one and only flakie polish to add something else to this mani rather than just a simple stamping.
I used a base colour of A England Galahad, with E.L.F Fairy over that. I stamped using Moyou Black and White with Bundle Monster plates BM-223, BM-305, BM-213, and BM-224. I added some ground to the nails with houses on in Black and topped everything off with China Glaze Fast Forward.

This mani was so stressful to do, because I wanted to do a dark blue background, but the black stamping didn't show up very much against that. So I restarted the mani with Galahad, but that took ages to dry even with the quick dry top coat. When I started to stamp the entire would slide off... Even though when I poked it before stamping it was fine. Urgh, I got so miffed, which is why my fingers are all dirty and gross in these pictures, as I just wanted to get it all over with. 

Here's pictures of the original base I wanted to use, the flakie looks so much better over that. Plus you can see the colour change of the flakies better in these.
