Nightmare Before Christmas Manicure

     Today, I am finally feeling better (after a long crappy cold) so I have some real honest to goodness nail art for you guys. I spent...well I spent forever on this one (like 3.5 hours) but I am really happy with how it turned out. One of my favorite movies is The Nightmare Before Christmas..I know I know it's a cult classic and a lot of people like it because of Tim Burton or whatever. But the reason I love this movie is more personal. It was the last movie I watched with my mother before she passed away. And so this movie will always hold a special place in my heart. So free warning every year around this time I will most likely do a The Nightmare Before Christmas inspired manicure (if you look at my Movie Theme Nail Art Post you can see I did one last year as well) because I just love the movie. Who knows one may show up around Christmas too. Anyway, Let's get to it shall we.

       Here's some music to set the stage.

     So there you have it my homage to one of my favorite movies. This is all free hand nail art...and that's why it took so long. What do you guys think? I am pretty happy with how this turned out. And since I am finally feeling better I will also be posting more nail art. Because, I just love Halloween and Halloween nail art. Until next time, stay classy and stay polished. 



  1. I love this mani (and the movie too)!! I think my favorite is Sally's Patchwork dress!!!

    1. Thank you. I'm glad you enjoy the Sally's dress nail I was hesitant to use that nail design now I'm glad I used it.
