Singin' in the Rain

It has been very rainy for the winter in my new home. One of my favorite movies is Singin' in the Rain.

I had based it on these iconic images. 
Those gray suits, that cute red umbrella .
Moses Supposes. :3

Its isn't cleaned up.

Its China Glaze Elephant Walk and Concrete catwalk, 
Solar Power and the red is OPI The Spy Who loved me.

For the umbrella I used some cute little stamps and some labels to use as a stencil.

I hope to get more cute little stamps soon. I believe I got these at Michaels.

Good to be back but I'm looking for work and still getting the house in order .

Halloween post: NMBC!

One of my favorite movies EVER is Nightmare before Christmas. I love all the songs, have a ton of that juicy merch and have designed some spiffy nail art just for Halloween!
I did the main characters really.
Jack, Sally, blank that was supposed to be burlap sack oogie but.... and oogie on the moon.
Barrel, the hill, Jack, Sally
Mayor sad face, Mayor happy face, Lock, shock and barrel!

I had fun doing these!
especially sally and the mayor.  I love details. 
Barrel is lopsided but its the design that counts! 
I was thinking of pre-painting these onto fake nails and selling them? or something like that. 
I know i have NMBC fake nail stickers I can use for Halloween, I got it from Claires last year I believe. super cute. Almost dun wanna use it though xD
maybe they'll have them again this year!

next? Book themes? more halloween? Or fall? idk we'll seeeee!

Little mini tut! Joker Jacket
Easy peasy! for the joker jacket I painted Sage in the city, about two coats, then add purple leaving a green triangle for his shirt (which can also be orange if you prefer I use the animated series for reference), Add a cute little bow on top for his neck. I then use black to add lines for his lapel and buttons. Then pink or yellow for his acid flower.
