Sugar skulls

Hello, everybody !

Today's theme in the "Alphabet nail art challenge" is the letter 'S', and I chose to create this Sugar skulls manicure. I wanted something that was easy to do, but at the same time eye-catching.

To achieve this manicure, I started with a base coat and then applied black nail polish on three of my nails. I chose two accent nails and painted them white. Then, using black acrylic paint and a dotting tool, I created the shape of two flowers on each nail for the eyes, an upside-down heart to act as a nose and then I used simple lines for the mouths using a striper brush. Once the acrylic dried, I applied a small amount of top coat in the center of the flowers to place the studs and finally applied one final layer of top coat to seal in the design.

So... now onto your opinions ! Do you like the theme, the idea, the result, the pictures ?... I'd love to see what you think about this design. Thank you for your time ! ^_^

Please stop by the other girls to see their manicures for this theme !
