I have wanted to do some sugar skull nails for ages! And I have finally got the chance to do them 😀
I started with two coats of Poke from Illamasqua. Poke has to be one of my favorite purple varnishes! It’s so vibrant 😀 for the skulls I made decals using this technique here! I used Ivory Skull from Sally Hansen and Hot Like Lava from Color Club along with Konad special polish in black for the stamping!
I used plate BM-413 from the Bundle Monster CYO set. I found that the large skull image was fine for my thumb nail but it was a little bit wide for my ring finger. it took a bit of repositioning the decal before it looked right.
on my other fingers I used one coat of Black Magic from Revlon topped with Chit Chat Pink Glitter!

I am definitely going to be doing something like this around Halloween! 😀
Has it really been over a week since my last post? Ooops! I guess I was so wrapped up in Christmas and other stuff that I didn’t even notice!
Anyway I hope your Christmas has been wonderful and filled with shiny things!
For this I started with two coats of Barielle Shades Grape Escape, which is a lovely purple creme followed by two coats of Orly Can’t Be Tamed, Large purple hex and smaller silver hex glitter in a clear base. It’s a really pretty polish but I found that it needed a lot of dabbing to get an even coat of the glitter.
This ended up as a stamped skittle mani because I just couldn’t decide on what I wanted to do!
I used Bundle Monster CYO set, BM-408 for my Thumb, BM-412 on my Middle Finger, BM-411 for the index finger (mutters about the image not being straight) and BM-423 for my ring and pinky fingers! and finished it off with a thick coat of Seche Vite.
For this I started with a sponged gradient of Blackened Bleu a black jelly with blue and green glitter from Barielle Shades, Ciao Bella which is the dark blue shimmer with blue glitter and Gorgeous a teal metallic both from Sinful colors.
The stamping plate is BM-401 from Bundle Monster.

Yay! my finger has nearly healed! I had a nasty washing up accident and It’s been looking horrible for days
I found my bottle of Twisted from Urban Decay while I was tidying up! 😀 And I couldn’t wait to show you all!

Look at the lovely gold sparklyness! I have to say that this is one of the few gold shades that I like, I’m not a big fan of yellow shades, This is more of an antique gold, there’s no metallic yellow here 😀
I was just going to do a quick swatch of this polish but then my Bundle Monster plates arrived! and I couldn’t wait to play with them! I Chose the CYO set, there are so many interesting images, completely different to any other BM collections!
