FingerFood Theme Buffet - Gothic

Monday, 21 April 2014

Evening beauts! Hope you've all had a lovely Easter weekend...

Tonight I have this week's 'Gothic' theme manicure from Fingerfood's buffet; for me this presented two choices - Nightmare Before Christmas and The Corpse Bride. I'm a fan of Tim Burton movies and Animations, so these are two favourites of mine. As we're nowhere near Christmas, I plumped for the Corpse Bride! Loooong time since I attemped such ambitious nail art, so it could have been better, and could have been much worse lol!


I started of with one coat of a lilac for the base, followed by one coat of The Polish Bar - Cloudy Skies. Next I used a black polish to stamp the bats on all but the middle two fingers and then took out my acrylic paints to create Victor and his Corpse Bride; finished up with a topcoat.


I do so wish my nails were a little wider! The length is good, but a bit more width would make for a much better canvas! I really enjoyed getthing the acrylics out, preeeety sure you can tell it's been a while since I was so adventurous, but I'm not appalled at my attempt... May have to do this sort of thing more often!
