The Nail Challenge Collaborative presents Halloween #4 - Sally Skellington

Hello everyone! This post marks the end of the NCC's Halloween month and my fourth Halloween mani. I couldn't let a chance to do a Tim Burton themed mani pass me by, so I decided to team Halloween with Christmas (as we will soon all be delving into that theme) by painting a design based on Sally's dress in "The Nightmare Before Christmas".

I started by painting the patchwork sections using Ciate Big Yellow Taxi, Color Club She's Sooo Glam and Ciate Headliner. I then outlined the sections, added the stitches and a few pattern details to some of the patches with LA Colors Black Velvet, and finished with Seche Vite. 

I'm so pleased that I found time to do these! Although they're not very complicated, they took ages as I had to wait for all the different elements to dry before I could continue.

So, that completes my Halloween month, a vampire rag doll, zombies, skeletons and a 3D spider. Now I just need to decide what to have on my nails for the day itself! :)
