I’ve been waiting all month to do this nail design and the time is finally here to share it with you. Today’s post features sugar skull nails – perfect for Halloween!
I started with white and black on every other finger as a base. I then went in with a dotting tool and some polish to create two polka dots for the eyes. If you’re going to try this for yourself, I suggest keeping these initial spots spaced fairly far apart from each other. Next I went in and added some additional dots around the outside of each eye. As you can see, it ends up looking a little like a flower.
I used a slightly smaller sized dotting tool to add colour directly inside each of these outer polka dots. To create the nose, I again used a dotting tool to drag some nail polish into a triangle shape.
I painted a stripe along the tip of my nail for the mouth, and added teeth by using the same colour as my base on a dotting tool to create polka dots along the top and bottom edges of that line.
I’m so happy with how these nails turned out and have received a ton of comments. Many people can’t believe that I did them myself, which I think is funny because they were so easy!
