The Nightmare Before Christmas - Jack and Sally
For my last NCC Stripes challenge of the month, I wanted to incorporate stripes and one of the most popular Halloween traditions - watching The Nightmare Before Christmas.
This mani was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest, but I cheated and used a 3-D charm for Jack's face.
I painted all but my middle finger with Revlon Spirit, and then used a black striper to freehand the black stripes. The middle finger was painted with Milani Black Swift, and then the charm was applied.

What's Jack without his girl?
This was inspired by a mani done by The Nailasaurus, but it reminded me of Sally.
I started off with a white base to make sure that the colors were bright. Then, I used striping tape to mark off the different sections. Even thought it would be nice to paint one color at a time, it dries too quickly for that - and dry polish gets pulled off with the striping tape. So, do one nail at a time. I painted over the white lines with black polish and made the stitches, too.

Wouldn't it be neat to have one hand done like Jack, and the other like Sally?
