Effie over at Paper Thin Nails is hosing a nail art contest for a chance to win the full set of Models Own Beetlejuice Collection! :D So of course the rules of this contest were to create a Beetlejuice inspired manicure using polishes only... it also had to be a new manicure (and believe me it is.. I finished it about 20 minutes ago).
So without further ado (and because I want to get to bed) I give you my contest entry...
It has been a long time since I did a really intricate freehand design and boy am I proud of this one! :D The very thin black lines outlining his face were done after the rest and they were tricky!
Below you can see a picture before top coat and how thick all the polish was :P Clearly this is also before cuticle oil..
Tid-bit of info about me: I always start with the most difficult nail first and work my way to the other ones. It helps me keep my sanity, if the first nail doesn't work out I don't have to scrap an entire mani.
I used a fair number of polishes, you can see them all below, if you would like to know a specific color just ask in the comments.. I also forgot to include the white (it was China Glaze).
Wish me luck in the contest!! :D Since it is US only I asked ahead of time that if I were so lucky to win could I send it to a US address, Effie said that wouldn't be a problem. Just in case anyone was worried.
