Nightmare Before Christmas

I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday! I have a Nightmare Before Christmas inspired manicure to show you today. If you haven't seen the movie, its a must. How can anyone turn down an animated movie from the mind of Tim Burton?

I painted all of my fingers (except for my ring finger) with two coats of Disney Jack Skellington Red. Its a pretty red shimmer in the cutest bottle, shaped like Jack Skellington's head. I got it in a set of three from Claire's. On my thumbs and pinkys, I layered on one coat of Fabulous Nails Midnight Black Crackle. On my index fingers, I did polka dots with Sinful Colors Black on Black and a dotting tool. Finally on my ring fingers, I used nail art stickers I got in a set from Claire's. On my left hand, I have Sally, and on the right, I have Jack and Sally.

Jack Skellington Red (the set did not come with names, but its Jack's head and red) applied very well. I was honestly surprised with how pretty it is. The nail art stickers, however, were a pain. They seemed to stay on well for a few minutes before they became to curl up near my cuticle. Maybe its just me. I know adhesives react differently to everyone. I do plan on trying them again before I make up my mind on them.

Both the Jack Skellington polish set and the Nightmare Before Christmas nail art stickers are on clearance at Claire's. If they are still available, they retail for $1-4. Sinful Colors retail for $2 at Walgreens (online/in store) and Target (in store). They're also available for $2.50 at Cherry Culture. Fabulous Nails retail for $15 on their website.
