Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas

My youngest child decided to be Sally for Halloween, and I spent a significant amount of time thinking about Sally/working on a Sally Costume...so for me to do a Sally-inspired manicure felt natural. Plus, I mean, the movie is a Christmas classic right?

Halloween Bonus: Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas

A while back, I fell in love with this manicure from cdbnails. It was the most beautiful, spooky, glorious thing I had ever seen. I knew I wanted to copy it. But I might not be ready for something that detailed and round...circles are hard, man. So my baby-steps version is the simple, smoky dotticure you see here. I am still really thrilled with the final product and will definitely be using this technique again and again.

For my middle and ring fingers, I broke out the acrylic paint and tried to do another face. It didn't come out quite as well as my mermaid, but I think she'll do. My tiny bosses approved, at the very least of Sally...though my splotchy mint & patches ring finger received a resounding meh from the judges. Buncha brats...

So my final thoughts are, again, I require more practice. I welcome any tips for working with acrylic paint that you can give me!
