Before & After: Who ya gonna call?!

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)

Hello!

So I went to see the new Ghostbusters with a friend of mine a few days ago, and I wanted to do a special mani for the occasion. I figured it was about time I bust out my freehanding mats because it's been forever since I've done any of that, and I decided to make the focus of the art the Ghostbusters logo. :)


I started with Spellbound Nails Dementor because I'm obsessed with it and it seemed like the perfect spooky night-time polish; here it is to refresh your memory:

Then I drew my logo using acrylic paints; I finished off with stripes that represent the reflector stripes on the ladies' ghostbusting overalls. Here's how it came out:

What do you think? I'm pretty happy with how the little guy turned out. His face could be better for sure, but not too shabby for a teeny tiny ghostie!


BTW, I loved the movie, and definitely recommend it if you're looking for something to do with your weekend. :)


Happy ghostbusting,
M.
