Distressed Skulls

Hi everyone!

A few months ago, I got an order from the Born Pretty Store which included some skull water decals. I’ve been waiting to use them and today I finally have!sinful-colours-slate-lavender-kaki-essence-colour-&-go-prom-berry-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-distressed-nails-nail-art-skull-water-decals-born-pretty-storeI decided to try the distressed nail look that’s been appearing everywhere ever since Chalkboard nails did a tutorial. I started with a coat of Sinful Colours Kaki and then, using a dry brush, I layered on Sinful Colors Lavender and Slate, Essence Prom-berry, and Charlie Revlon Lady in Red until I was happy with the effect. It didn’t come out quite as I intended, but I still thought it was the perfect base for these decals. sinful-colours-slate-lavender-kaki-essence-colour-&-go-prom-berry-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-distressed-nails-nail-art-skull-water-decals-born-pretty-storeOnce the base was dry, I applied the water decals. I simply had to soak them in water for a few seconds, then they slid right off the backing paper and applied easily to the nail. I topped it with a coat of Sally Hansen Insta-dri top coat. sinful-colours-slate-lavender-kaki-essence-colour-&-go-prom-berry-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-distressed-nails-nail-art-skull-water-decals-born-pretty-storeI really enjoyed these nails! What do you think? Water decals are perfect for some quick-yet-amazing nail art!
