Nail-Art-A-Go-Go - Day 17 - Animation

Hi guys, and welcome to Monday.  Hope you all had a great weekend!  Today is Day 17 of the NAGG, and the prompt for today is Animation.  This is a prompt I was really looking forward to, as I knew from the word go that I would be doing a Nightmare Before Christmas mani. :D

I decided to use a combination of freehand and stamping for this mani, and since every nail is different, I'll try not to go into too much detail.  The index finger was freehanded with a base of La Femme - Ice Blue Cream, and Sinful Colors - Black on Black.  (I used a sharpie for the stitches)  The middle finger was painted freehand with OPI - My Vampire is Buff & Rimmel Lycra Pro - Bare Necessities for the moon, and Revlon - Royal and SC - Black on Black for the rest.  The ring finger is Ice Blue Cream, stamped with Konad Black and MoYou Suki 10, and the pinky was freehanded with Sally Hansen CSM - Lavender Cloud and SC Black on Black.
Here are the glossy pictures, and a shot of the thumb, so you can see what I did for that nail too.
The thumb is SH Lavender Cloud, and I stamped the swirly branches from MoYou Landscape 01, first with Ice Blue Cream, then with Royal, and finally, Konad Black.  I wanted to create a sort of tangled branches look, that tied in to the colours in the rest of the mani.  I quite liked this nail, and may have to play around with triple stamping a bit more at some point.
I was really pleased with this mani - not only is it totally awesome because of it's inspiration, but I don't think I did too bad a job with the freehand bits either.
Don't forget to check out all the other animation mani's in the thumbnails below :)
