Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls on my Fingernails

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.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.

  1. I love this mani! And I am so impressed by your free handed, skull painting abilities!

    • Thanks! I love the way that they look so goony! As to my painting abilities, I really don’t have any, this was so hard to do! It looks good in the pictures because I painted over the mistakes (many!!!) My kitties learned a whole lot of new words!!!
