I have seen quite a few versions of sugar skull nail art before, but it wasn’t really something I wanted to try for myself until Tip Top Nails had a Facebook nail art competition with a sugar skulls theme. Now I am really glad I tried it! I did a quick Google image search for some sugar skulls to help me along and then got settled in for some detailed nail art. I started with a base of Sinful Colors Ciel, and once it was dry, I did all the rest with acrylic paints and a small detail brush.
I started out with the two skulls, and by the time they were done, I had decided it would work better to combine them with some flowers – a skull on each nail might have been a bit much (and would have taken for ever!) I’m glad I went with the flowers because I think they complement the skulls really well and the look came together beautifully.
I was really happy with the finished product! What do you think?
