Happy Halloween week! Today, just for you, I have my first Halloween-themed nail art manicure! I have seen a TON of Jack Skellington manis and I just adore The Nightmare Before Christmas, so I wanted to recreate that look. I think I first saw it somewhere on Pinterest, but I honestly don’t remember the original source. But I loved the mani from the first time I saw it, aaaand it fits in perfectly with October’s NCC theme of stripes!
I just realized that I forgot to paint in Jack’s little skeleton nose! Oops! But I think it still looks like him, don’t you? Even if it doesn’t 100% look like him, it still looks like a skeleton face.
I also realized while I was cropping these pics, my cuticles and fingers are RAGGED. Gross! I’m sorry for subjecting you to that! I went to my college homecoming weekend (my 9 year reunion and my husband’s 10th!), and we had a few bonfires and other shenanigans that weren’t terribly kind on my fingers. Plus I forgot all my nourishing cuticle/ hand products! So anyways, forgive me! I’m going to put my hands in beauty boot camp and they’ll be pretty again soon.
For this mani, I used my amazing Rica Blackout & Whiteout with some nail vinyls and nail art brushes. I know I say it all the time, but I love love love Rica’s Whiteout & Blackout!! They are the best quality white and black polishes I’ve found – super duper opaque and creamy and perfect for stamping.
So what do you think? What’s your mani plan for Halloween? I have a few more looks this week for your Halloween-loving eyes!
