Day Of The Dead Skulls

Hello nail people! Today I'm showing my attempt at Hannah Rox It Nails basic day of the dead nail art. Her video's are great, I would highly recommend checking out her Youtube channel. My left hand looks a lot better than my left with these, I think I've been doing so much stamping that I'm out of practise with freehand. You can see my wobbly right hand bottom left!

I used Barry M's Coconut as a base, mine is nearly finished and getting a bit thick now, so it was a bit of a challenge! Next I used a dotting tool to create black dots for the eyes, and then a smaller tool to create the colourful markings around the outside of the eyes. While this was drying I used black polish and a small brush to create the triangular noses. For the mouths I reverted back to my old nail art pen! I found this easier for creating the thin lines. Finally, I used the pen to draw outlines of the markings on the eyes, et voila, spooky!

I have mixed feelings on this mani, I do think it's imperfections made it a little spookier! I kept it on for a few days and kept changing my mind whether I wanted to keep it on or not! If I could have got it as neat as Hannah did that would have been ideal!
Colours used: Coconut - Barry M, Lady In Black - OPI, Yellow - Barry M, Cyan - Barry M, Dead Heat - Barry M, Key Lime - Barry M, Nail Art Pen in Black - Barry M
