As the title suggests, this nail art was inspired by skulls and bones. I've done skulls for 2 straight years. Skull Skittles last year which was actually just a recreation of Colorful Skulls. But what I am about to share here is different and I hope you'll like it as much as I do. I feel a little weird though because I had mixed feelings with my previous bats nail art and all of sudden I feel thrilled about this!
Here it is:
The idea was to paint a field of skulls on my nails but I figured that would be quite difficult to accomplish on such a small canvas. I also realized that it would entail so much detail for it to work. So I thought of just painting one skull on each nail and some bones.
I used 2 coats of Deborah Lippmann Edge of Glory as black polish base. Other Halloween colors would probably work as well. As for the design, I used black and white acrylic paint, detail and striper nail art brushes.
I decided to concentrate the design on the nail tips. I thought of randomly painting the skulls on different sides on each nail. But after I drew on one nail and liked it, I didn't bother to alter it when I continued painting the other nails.
Take a closer look:
As mentioned earlier, this is fairly easy to do even with your non-dominant hand. Don't get discouraged if this seems complicated because I assure you, it is not. I have included a video nail art tutorial below to share with you how I painted this design. One of the things I learned from nail art painting is that sometimes, what makes a nail design easier to do is knowing what to paint first.

This is probably the spookiest among the Halloween nail art designs I have posted in this blog. We have 2 more weeks until the day of Trick or Treat is upon us. Hopefully, I could squeeze in a few more interesting nail art ideas for the scary season. Shoot me a message if you have any suggestions.
So, what do you think? Like or dislike?
