Skull Nail Art

Since its the beginning of October, I thought I'd try out some Halloween-themed nail art.
Skull nail art on red nail polish.

I started off with painting my nails with a base coat.
I used O.P.I nailpolish called "Monsooner or Later"
2 coats of "Monsooner or Later" nail polish
I used  nail art pen in "Black" by Sally Hansen
I used the nail art pen to roughly outline and sketch my skull design.
Nail art pen in "white" by Fing'rs

Filled outline of skull using my "white" polish from the Fing'rs nail art pen.
Add details using black polish. I used a toothpick to grab some of the black color from the Sally Hansen nail art pen since it allows me to be more precise compared to using the nail art pen by itself. I'm not too fond of the black nail art pen because it sometimes makes a big mess when I'm trying to dispense the color.
And I ruined the whole design by adding rhinestones in the shape of a 'bow'... HAHAHA!
Here's one with a spider on its head :P
I hope you liked my silly skull nail art design! :P
Do you have some fun Halloween nail art designs? Please share! :P

that is so cool that you drew that, at first I thought it was a nail sticker you put on! you're so talented :)

Karen said...

Wow you did a great job! I normally don't like skulls but yours is pretty darn cute.. I think maybe because the bow is there :P

hehe you can remove my giveaway pic.. thank you for your help in sharing it <3

p.s. unfortunately shiseido is definitely not CF :( I've been trying to use up the very last of my night moisturizer so that I can switch to a CF brand

This nail tutorial is totally awesome! I wish I had enough patience to do designs like this.

And it's also a plus that you have such nice nails to work with.

I skimmed through some of your old posts and now I HAVE to try that gelato place out. It looks soo good. {*yum}

<3s Serena.

MKL said...

You drew it just like that? How awesome :P My sister is totally into nail art and has all the professional equipment at home, even the "oven" where you put your nails inside to dry. I find that pretty mind boggling. Girls are weird, haha. But it looks cool, when it's done :P

Senita said...

I lеave a response when I aρprecіate a
artіcle on a websitе οr іf I havе ѕomething
to ѵaluаble to contrіbute tо the conversation.
Usually it's a result of the sincerness communicated in the article I read. And after this article "Skull Nail Art". I was moved enough to drop a thought :) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be only me or does it appear like a few of these responses look as if they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I'd like
to keep uρ with еvеrуthіng fresh you haνе to
pοst. Could you maκе a liѕt evеrу one of all your community pages like youг Fасebοok
page, twitter feed, or linkеdіn profіle?

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your
article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.

The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon.
