Instructions:

I am very excited to try out the new FitFlop Pantone® 200 Red Varnish (as mentioned in my last post). I used this as a base colour except for the thumbs where I used Sinful Colors Black on Black. The application of the FitFlop Red was even, and loved the vibrant red but unfortunately was a little sheer, it needed 2-3 coats. Then I cut out a piece of small sponge and sponged gradation (my first time using sponge technique!) colour only on index, middle and baby fingers with Sinful Colors Black on Black. 2 coats. 2nd coat concentrating on the base to deepen the colour.

Then I used Sinful Colors Black on Black to stamp the ring fingers with the spider pattern from BM13 plate. From the same plate, I used Beauty UK Snow White to stamp the thumbs with the web pattern. Used good coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat and voilà!

This was my first time using sponge technique, what do you think? Where do you learn your techniques? What's your favourite new trick?
