Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, BEETLEJUICE! - These Are Clearly Birthday Dinner Nails

First off let me thank everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday the other day!  I had a great night of drinking and karaoke.  BUT the fun isn't over yet!  Tonight I'm going out for a birthday dinner with a few friends, followed by dancing!

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!
