If a button nose is cute, why are button eyes creepy?

I am not a fan of scary movies. When I say I "watched" a scary movie, it means I watched the first ten minutes, then hid under a blanket with my ears plugged the rest of the time. Coraline is probably bordering on the amount of creepy that I can handle without having to do that. So finally getting into the spirit of things, here are my creepy Halloween nails.
I painted the faces of the three ghost children and on my ring finger is the Other Mother (though she ended up looking quite Joker-ish).

Polishes:
Left to right: Sally Hansen "White On", "Black Out", China Glaze "Elephant Walk", American Apparel "Factory Grey", Gosh Matte Effect Top Coat, OPI "Color So Hot it Berns"
I decided to have some more fun and give myself some button eyes. Too bad I can't go out with these since they look pretty ridiculous with my eyes open. *Warning for awkwardly posed pictures*
Did Coraline creep you out as much as it did me, or do you watch actual scary movies? What are you doing tonight for Halloween? I'm looking forward to giving out candy - hope we get some trick-or-treaters despite the weather. Stay safe and have fun!

  1. Hehehe! Love these!! Such a different take on Coraline inspired nail arts! The photos are great too! So are the poses -well, awkwardness is part of the charm of the animation.

    Not a fan to pay to be scared. hahaha, but animated films like Coraline is totally fine with me. And it didn't creep me out either. But as to your title, I suppose it could be related to the saying 'The eyes are windows to your soul' so button eyes seems like erm, dolls that are moving.. =/ or something along that. hahahaa!

    1. Thanks so much! Lol I thought since Coraline was animated, it couldn't be too bad, but it still scared me. You are obviously braver than I xD

  5. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these nails!!! I just came across your blog having looked at your american apparel sheer polish swatches which were a great help by the way and I'm so glad I found you! I watched Coraline recently for the first time but wasn't so much scared as I was confused. Anyway, I love the simplicity of the faces and how the details really stand out but I love your needle and thread, it looks so delicate and amazing! I can't wait to see more of your work! x

      Hahaha you found the movie confusing? I know I have a low scare tolerance, but I don't know how little kids could watch this movie! xD
