I started with a base of Maybelline Cool Couture, a dark gray cream with a teal shimmer. Using a dotting tool I added the green "brew" in Maybelline La La Lime and topped it off with OPI Zom-body to Love for some glow in the dark action. Then I added the glitter, eyeballs and spiders all following ArcadiaNailArt's Witch's Brew tutorial. Keep reading for a full list of supplies used. Since the challenge is for a matte dotticure, I matted the whole thing using Essie Matte About You...
A bit of glow in the darkness thanks to OPI Zom-body to Love happening here... I love how the spider on the ring finger turned out and as for the rest... it is a bit hard to tell what it really is :)
Here is what it looked like before the matte top coat. Pretty cute, but I ended up loving the matte version...

Maybelline Cool Couture is a dark gray with teal shimmer. I'm completely in love with this polish right now and cannot believe it took me this long to try it. I have a weakness for dark gray as it is, but the teal shimmer is something special. It took two coats for full coverage and no top coat used for the swatches here...
A closer peek at the shimmer...
