Mani Monday 10/15/12

It’s just another Mani Monday ooh-ooh!
In scheming up ideas for this week’s mani it came to me.  Create my ode to Tim Burton through nails!  So here it is, this week’s mani inspired by “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”  This is my all-time favorite holiday movie and I adore when this theme takes over the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland.  This week I am not only posting the finished product but the steps I took as well.  Enjoy!


Step 1)

Base coat: OPI: Greece Just Blew Me Away

2 coats



Step 2)

Kinda created a V at the tip but any quasi design would work.

OPI: Movin’ Out



Step 3)

Just made one last stripe.

Avon:  Gleaming Gold



okay-this is the slightly tricky part, but if I can do it so can you!

Step 4)

Using a thin paintbrush painted on black stitches by following the blocks of color.

Avon: Licorice



and here is what I added for an additional bit of whimsy

Hmmm…I am suddenly in the mood to watch a movie.  Wonder which one I should watch?

Have a great week and see you next Monday!
