Alphabet Nail Art Challenge: M for Mosaic

Hey everyone! Guess is that time for another Alphabet Nail Art Challenge...M for Mosaic. I just love doing mosaic nails, don't you?! I've done many mosaic nails on my past nail art. However, this one is quite different. For one it's bordered and two I've always wanted to try my skull nail charm, I had for months now.
I really loved how it turned out. I've been brainstorming on how to create this mani, but it turned out more than I expected! Hopefully all of you as much as I did! It will be difficult for me when I will have to remove them. :( So here it is:
For this design, I wanted a bordered look and add a Halloween theme, using the skull charm. The base, I applied two coats of Pure Nail Lacquer Sunlight. This is a super bright neon yellow, it's actually even brighter than the photos! Once the polish dries, I outlined the lines with a nail art brush, using Revlon Black Magic.
I created the mosaic frames differently on each nail. Then I filled in the empty frames with Julep Missy Forever 21 White. I then fixed some of the blemishes, by highlighting the lines again. I then added the borders using Revlon Black Magic.
For the skull nail charm, I first drew the border round the nail, using Revlon Black Magic. Once that was set, I added a thin top coat for were the charm will be. You can also use a nail glue, for the charm to be more secured. I added the charm onto the nail, added small dots and then sealed it with Duri- Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat. 
What do you guys think? Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
