I wanted to have a Halloween manicure, and I almost decided to do the mummy nails that I had last year, but then I decided I wanted something new. So I painted Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls on my nails! I know that sugar skulls aren’t technically Halloween, but today is the Day of the Dead, and yesterday was Halloween, so I think I’m OK- LOL.
I painted my accent nails with OPI My Vampire Is Buff and my other nails with OPI Jinx. Then I painted on the skulls, which was a lot harder than I thought it would be. For the purple skull I used Revlon Plum Attraction for the dark purple, Nicole by OPI Purple Yourself Together for the light purple, and It’s So Easy Stripe Rite in Black for the teeth. For the red skull I used Sinful Colors Sugar Sugar for the dark red, Milani Pink Hottie for the pink, and It’s So Easy Stripe Rite in Black for the teeth. I used my striping brush to outline the lips, and various dotting tools for the dots.
