8 Spooky Nights Nail Art Challenge: Skulls

Today is the first day of my SECOND Halloween Nail Art Challenge this month. And I'm throwing a big party next Saturday. My costume isn't done, decorating isn't done, food isn't planned, and I have 7 nail art looks to complete by then! Needless to say, I'm a busy girl :) But I took a good chunk out of my day today to play around with nail art, so that I don't fall behind! 

For this challenge, as with the other challenge I'm participating in, I challenge myself to use at least one indie polish in each design, to keep in line with my blog mission statement. 

So here is my look for 8SN Day 1: Skulls. I had a super cute layered stamping thing in my head, but my stamper (or more probably, my polish) was NOT cooperating with me this morning! 

I started with three coats of Literary Lacquers' Jealous Oberon (check back tomorrow to see a full review on that polish!), then stamped on the skulls using Sally Hansen Insta Dry in Presto Pink, and Vivid Lacquer plate VL-001 (full nail skulls) and QA 5 for the single skulls. 

Be sure to check out all the other ladies participating in this challenge, and their amazing creations!

  1. These are cute!! Thanks for torturing yourself and participating in two challenges!! Haha

  2. I really like that stamp! So cool!

  3. @Kelly- I'm still not confident in my nail art skills, so I wanted to do a challenge to force myself to practice! Then I couldn't decide which one, so why not both :) And thanks so much everyone for the encouragement!
