Gothic Mix and Match nails

Hi Friends! If you are my regular follower you must be knowing that I am participating in lot of nail art challenges - Summer Challenge by StyleThoseNails, FingerFood's Theme Buffet and The Neverending Pile Challenge by the GLITTAH pirates. Today I have done nails in combination with two themes - Mix n Match nails by StyleThoseNails and Gothic nails by  FingerFood's Theme Buffet.
     
                                               

My nails are too short right now and so I did a simple mani. I started by painting my nails with two coats of Maybelline Colorshow Downtown Red. Once the base was dry I used Maybelline Colorshow Bold Gold and stamped images from Bundle Monster CYO plates - BM402, BM413 and BM411. I had problems picking up Skulls and cross image from BM413 plate. I guess that image is not etched properly and is very thin. I didn't have issues picking rest of the images from the same plate. I added a layer of Revlon Matte topcoat to complete the look. During my clean up, Downtown red stained my cuticles. I am not very pleased with this mani. I am sure I could have done better.
