"This is Halloween" Nail Art Challenge! Day 1: Horror Movies

Hello all! I have decided to do another nail art challenge! This one was created by Bec of Lacquer Dreams. It technically started yesterday, but I found out about it last night and figured I should join in! This one has Ghosts and graveyard! How cool is that? So as of now I am currently doing two Halloween nail art challenges and two Halloween nail art contests. I'm also doing the Let's Do the Time Warp Challenge, which ends tomorrow, and on Friday I will be starting another challenge. I am a busy one! Today's objective was to create a design inspired by a horror movie.


I get scared horribly easier so I am not a huge fan of horror movies. I haven't seen many in my life, so my choices were limiting. I decided to go with one of my all time favorite movies, (which might not be considered a horror movie) Sleepy Hollow. When I saw it for the first time it really scared the crap out of me. Christopher Walken as the headless horsemen is pretty frightening!

This is pretty horrifying, right?
I hope this counts as a horror film. I know the story that the movie is based off of is a scary story, so it should count right? I think anything that includes a headless horseman should could has horror. For my nail art design I choose to go Tim Burton style and make it all grey and dark. I hope you all enjoy it!


I just love how the tree on my thumb came out. This is the tree that Ichabod discovers to be the gateway to hell. I'm very happy with all the detail. If you haven't seen the movie, I recommend that you do! 

What I used:
  • Base coat: OPI Skull & Glossbones
  • Black, white, red, yellow acrylic paint
  • Sally Hansen Silver Sweep
  • Nail art brushes
As I write this post I can't help but wonder... Is Halloween Johnny Depp's favorite holiday? I really hope it is! I really want to watch this movie now! Well I hope you enjoyed my post!

See you tomorrow!
PeaceErin

  1. This is GREAT!!! I love this!! I've only seen bits and pieces of the movie but my question is, why does Christopher Walken have freaky eyes and pointy teeth? I know he's the headless horseman but sheesh, he's scary enough without all that extra LMBO! I love the tree on your thumb!!

    1. Hahahahah! Your comment was so funny! Christopher Walken is pretty scary! His character is suppose to be very sinister, so I'm thinking the eyes are suppose to be for like dead eyes or something and as for the teeth the character filed them down into points, I think so he could attack people with them...very gross haha. I'm glad you liked the tree, it's my favorite :)
