Halloween Nail Art: Sally Skellington

So after way more deliberation and angst than should have strictly been necessary, I finally settled on what nail art to do for Halloween and had a go at Sally, from The Nightmare Before Christmas!

These really were a challenge for me, as I'm still so rough and brand-new at trying to paint recognizable faces, but since there are only so many stitched up, blue-skinned redheads in the Halloween catalog, I figured I could at least communicate who I was trying to paint...and even if my Sally Skellington looks like the love child of Willow Rosenberg and a Muppet, I really enjoyed stretching myself and trying something new!

The base for these is Essie Mint Candy Apple, over which I sponged some Essie Borrowed & Blue and Bikini So Teeny (...not that you can see that anymore, since it all blended together when top coated >_<). For Sally's dress, I did a quick and dirty colour block of Skinfood PK202, Bourjois Jaune trendy, and Skinfood BL514. Everything else is a whole bunch of acrylic paints.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Halloween!
