Nightmare Before Christmas: Spiral Hill

So I really wasn't planning to do any Halloween-themed nail art this year, but I decided at the last minute that I wanted to do a quick tribute to the iconic scene of Jack on Spiral Hill in The Nightmare Before Christmas. (Replaying Kingdom Hearts might have something to do with it... but also probably why I didn't have enough time to do a not-so half-assed nail set...)

Believe it or not, I hadn't actually watched The Nightmare Before Christmas until very recently. The movie came out over 20 years ago and I knew the gist of the story, but I only watched it for the first time last year! It really is a fantastic movie and I understand why it's so iconic.

For the base, I used just one coat of China Glaze Up All Night, an inky indigo. I sponged a bit of OPI Funny Bunny on top for a misty look. Spiral Hill (or Curly Hill, I'm not sure of the official name) is also done with Up All Night, with some quick shading using white acrylic paint dry-brushed on. The moon and silhouette are also acrylic paints.

I know Jack's silhouette should be much longer and leaner, but I painted the moon and the hill first and ended up not leaving enough space for Jack D: Maybe I should just paint on to my skin next time?

Hope you all have a safe and happy Halloween!
