Skull-Free Sugar Skulls

Skull-Free Sugar Skulls 1

Cinco de Mayo-inspired nails, just cinco or so days late. 😉 All of the beautiful design work, none of my pesky inability to draw skulls, even skulls with candy hearts for eyes.

Parenthetically, it’s been an absolute eternity since I’ve sat down with a random bunch of polishes and just gone to town on a super detailed design; I’ve missed it.  I mean, Mickey nails are great and all, but sometimes you want a bit more than three dots in the shape of a mouse head.  Why you’d want more than that I truly don’t know, but I think it’s pretty well established that I’ve got a wicked case of Disney Brain and can see nothing but three dots in the shape of a mouse head anyways.  I think that’s why I like this manicure so much – a decided lack of Disney, will wonders never cease!  Enjoy it while it lasts, folks.

Sugar Skulls

Sugar Skulls HandIridescent, glittery sweet sugar skulls for week three’s theme of skulls in February’s N.A.I.L. Challenge. Two more of Mentality’s gorgeous jellychromes, turquoise Shindig and hot pink Hoopla, act as the perfect background polishes, their colour-shifting glass shimmer adding beautiful shading and depth to my first-time ever sugar skull mani.
