Good morning, readers! It’s Day 3 of Autumn Week with The Digit-al Dozen and I feel like I’m running out of ideas. How will I finish this week?! I was feeling so uninspired this morning so I grabbed my life saving Idiot’s Guides: Nail Art written by the lovely Emily of The Lacquerologist. It’s my “go-to” when I just can’t seem to figure out what to do on my nails and it did the trick this morning! I remember LOVING the Sugar Skull Tutorial in the book (Pages 162-163 if you have one) and this week is the perfect theme week for my own Sugar Skull nail art. Emily’s tutorial is so easy to follow that I did it on each nail instead of an accent.

Sugar Skull Nail Art 1

  • I began with two coats of Rica Whiteout.
  • I followed Emily’s tutorial using my small collection of acrylic craft paints.
  • Girly Bits Polish Matte’rs was used for a matte finish on the entire nail.

What do you think of this look? Have you painted sugar skull nail art before? If you are interested, Emily’s book is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle format HERE. It’s also a great idea for a holiday gift. You can see my original review if you’d like more information.

    I’ve done stamped sugar skulls but not hand painted ones and if I did, I’m sure they wouldn’t be this great!
