The finished look
What you will need:
- Base Coat (optional)
- White nail varnish
- Black nail varinsh
- Top coat (optional)
- Dotting tool
- Thin brush
If you do not have a nail brush or dotting tool you could use a toothpick.
If you wish, paint your nails using a base coat. This stops your actual nails staining once you remove the nail polish.
I know my nails are in serious need for TLC...
Paint your nails white. You may have to do several layers to make sure the colour is bold.
Carefully draw the jaw-line onto your skull.
Using the dotting tool (or tooth pick) draw two circles for eyes. You may have to use quite a lot of nail varnish to get a big dot.
Using less varnish, draw two slightly smaller circles in the middle of your nail. This is your skull's nose.
Draw a thin, horizontal line connecting both jaw-lines. Then draw small, vertical lines along it. This creates the mouth effect.
Again, if you wish, you can add a top coat. This will keep your nail varnish on longer and also prevent chipping. Voila: Your skull nails are now complete!
I hope you enjoyed reading about how I did my nails this halloween. Let me know in the comments how you did your nails xxx
