Hanninator’s Jack Skellington Nails

🎥Tutorial for my Jack Skellington nails 🖤 . Tips for reverse stamping: Don’t wait for the polish to dry too long on the stamper before you stamp. I let it dry just to the touch, so it’s still a bit tacky. You can also apply a coat of quick dry top coat on the nail before you stamp. The same thing there, just wait for it to get tacky, then stamp. . Products used: • @opisverige Polly want a lacquer? • @bundlemonster Poli-Peel cuticle protector • @linanailartsupplies Spooklicious! 01 • @paintedpolishbylexi Autumn Twilight 2.0 • @paintedpolishbylexi Midnight mischief • @uberchicbeauty XL Clear stamper • @whatsupnails Dance 24 detail brush • @opisverige Alpine snow • @superchiclacquer Liquid Macro top coat . . . #nailswag #manicure #nailart #nailista #nailpolish #nailpolishaddict #instanails #nailstagram #nailartclub #nailpromote #nailporn #nailsofinstagram #nailtutorial #nailvids #nailvideos #nailarttutorial #nailsvideos #simplynotlogical #nails2inspire #manicuresvideos #nailsclip #nag_repost #nailitdaily #jackskellingtonnails #halloweennails #linanailartsupplies #paintedpolish #31daysofhalloweennailsbyhanninator #hanninatortutorials

Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is a timeless classic, so it comes as no surprise that this iconic flick would also inspire beautiful nail art. This how-to video by @Hanninator is just one of dozens to include Burton’s trademark aesthetic.

When you cut your cuticles too short 🔪 the trick to make these realistic is to make the bottom of the drips darker by mixing a bit of black into the red.
