Originally I was going to do just a bit of nail art. Nothing too time consuming. Then out of no where I though "Beetlejuice nails...I need to do them!". I don't know why I wanted to do them I just did. Also it's a rule of thumb that you can do whatever you want on your birthday dinner. Minus murder, cow tipping and a full two act puppet show. Besides they go perfect with sushi right?
I actually started with a pure white cream. But that was patchy and gross, so I covered it up with Essie Moonstruck. I actually like how it wasn't a stark white because, Beetlejuices suit isn't exactly clean. Next I sponged on green acrylic paint, OPI Black Onyx and then Urban Outfitters Forest. So it kind of mimics the stuff growing on his face. Next I did all the stripes by hand with paint. Cutting tape to the perfect size was just too much of a pain. And I really liked how this turned out. Finally I added Beetlejuice's green hair to my ring fingers.
All in all I'm really pleased with this. Now all getting all excited thinking of Halloween and all the potential manicures!
