Nail Art: Skulls Skittles

My next Halloween inspired nail design is definitely not spooky but the concept should have been one. This is actually a remake from last year's Colorful Skulls Nail Art. The difference lies on how the skulls were painted. I retained the idea of a skittle's manicure so I named this "Skulls Skittles".

Take a look:

I used 5 light colored nail polishes for this nail art. My orange wasn't as light but after deliberating with myself, I figured it could somehow serve as an accent nail. I don't know if you will buy my lame excuse. If you like to recreate this, I recommend a more consistent hue on all 5 colors.

I used the following Dazzle Dry Nail Polishes:
  • Misty Moon
  • Casablanca
  • Frozen Lemonade
  • Lavender Parade
  • Orange Sorbet

You may view swatches and my review of these polishes here, here, and here.

I applied each color in 2 coats and used acrylic paints and a detailing nail art brush to hand paint the design.

This is a very easy design to make. I recommend this to nail art beginners who's looking for a simple Halloween nail design. Precision of brush strokes is at a minimum and it is not time consuming. Also, since you don't need perfect shapes for this design, working with your non-dominant hand would be manageable.

Simply draw 3 vertical lines on your nail tips for the mouth, add irregular black eyes, paint 2 tiny lines for the nose, and add alternating white and black dots for further eye details.

Here's a photo of all of them together:

Perhaps you've noticed how I randomly painted the eyes on each skull differently. I wanted them to look crazy. To make this design scarier, probably a solid black for the eyes would make a lot of difference.

Overall, I think this is a fun mani for Halloween. As an alternative, I think this design would look really good on neon polishes. If only I had 5 neon shades to play with. :)

October is almost done and hopefully I could squeeze in a few more Halloween nail art ideas. You may view my previous Halloween nail art ideas here.
