The Nightmare Before Christmas

Happy night-before-Halloween! I’ve been planning all week to show this one today, because it is my favorite :-D! Nightmare Before Christmas nail art 🙂

What I love about this movie is that it (much like Love Actually) is technically a christmas movie, not a halloween move (and similarly not a valentine’s day movie). Don’t get me wrong, I love watching the Nightmare Before Christmas during Halloween (it, along with Hocus Pocus and Rocky Horror Picture Show are my staple movies for Halloween weekend), but it is a christmas movie! Regardless, it has a wonderful art style.

This mani was inspired by @mypolishworld. I have seen quite a few Nightmare Before Christmas manis floating around, but hers was the first to catch my eye, so I went with it! I do wish I could get thinner lines out of my black polish, but it is beginning to get stringy so poor Jack’s teeth look a bit..crooked. I also wished I had thought to paint Zero on one of my nails, he is so cute!

I hope you get lots of candy, fun costumes, and spooky nail art this weekend! Enjoy!

All Hallows Eve

I kept seeing photos of the new Incoco nail strips for halloween, and decided to do my favorites by hand! Only, I had to make them MORE colorful. So, I present the wonderfully glittery and creepy All Hallows Eve!

I started by sponging on a base of orange-red-purple (using all super glittery textured polishes) to recreate the creepy sunset gradient of the incoco nails.

I then stamped a devil (thumb) and two spooky houses onto my nails from Bundle Monster. Unfortunately, the houses didn’t stamp all that well. I then added bats and crosses by hand.

I really think this came out cool! The colors make it spooky, and the contrast between the misty houses (I’m going to pretend the fact that they are not terribly distinct was intentional) and the dark ground and bats is suitably halloween-y.
