Good morning lovelies & Happy Monday! Can you believe this month is almost over? The countdown to Halloween is officially on & I’m both excited to celebrate, & sad for my favourite month to be over! But since we have a few more Halloween looks to go, I’m going to keep the excitement rolling with our second last #glamnailschallengeOct prompt which is Skull. A similar idea to skeleton, so I wanted to try & do something way different from my skeleton design.
& it was the perfect opportunity to use some nail tattoos by Maybelline that I recently purchased on extreme clearance at my local pharmacy (& favourite place for nail polish deals!) These nail tattoos were pretty cool, & I couldn’t think of a better opportunity to use them.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Sally Hansen Green Tea Bamboo Strengthener
- Base Coat: Duri Rejuvocate
- Top coat: YSL Beauty Quick Dry Top Coat
- Sally Hansen Color Therapy Slicks & Stones
- Acrylic Paint
- NailStuff.ca 7mm detail brush
- NailStuff.ca dotting tool trio
How much fun! This was also my first time in a long time wearing Sally Hansen Slicks & Stones which is just such a pretty shade for Autumn. It also goes really well with the orange & blues of my skull tattoo. It turned out more celebratory than scary, which is fun for this time of year as well. I’m digging it! & I added roses to add to the sugar skull feel.
Close up look at that nail tattoo. This makes me excited to use a few more of the designs that came in the packs I got. Definitely fun for fancy nails when you’re on a time limit… I definitely couldn’t draw that skull design in the 60 seconds it took me to apply that tattoo & add my top coat.
What do you think about these sugar skull nails? Remember you can check out the other #glamnailschallengeOct looks on Instagram. There is just one more prompt to go!
