Themed Thursday - October 8th: Graveyard

Hello my friends! Remember our first Themed Thursday post last week? Today is the second post of our October theme (Halloween!) and we're painting all things Graveyard or Haunted House...or both!
I was a bit stumped for what to do for today since I've done a few graveyard scenes in the past and I wasn't sure how to keep it fresh and exciting for myself. I decided I was going to take on the graveyard in a more morbid way and show some skeletons escaping their beds in the ground ;) spooky, right :P

So, I have to say, I really dig (hehe get it??) how this mani turned out. I love painting landscape scenes across all my nails and this one was pretty fun to create. I haven't done one like this in a long while and it felt good to get the creative juices going again. That was what I had hoped for from this challenge, that I would get back on track with doing regular nail art only posts.
I used a base of OPI's OPI...Eurso, Euro and then sponged on a darker blue near the top of each nail. With acrylic paints I added in the rest of the details, working my way from the ground up.
You can check out my quick video below to see how I painted these!

Overall, I really like these! I feel very accomplished to have gotten these out of my head and onto my nails and I hope you like them as well! Let me know what you think and be sure to check out the hashtag #themedthursdayoct on social media to see what everyone has painted for the day!
Happy Polishing :)
