Sharpie Sugar Skulls

1. Apply two coats of white nail polish , I used Models Own Snow White
2. Using Sharpie permanent markers, draw on your sugar skull design using any colours you like
3. Apply fimo shapes for the eyes of your sugar skulls, then use diamante add more detail if you want to, then topcoat carefully.
 
Despite looking like this would take forever it really didn't! I simply applied two coats of white, let that dry completely and then used my limited edition 80's GLAM Sharpies to draw on all the details. I could have used nail art pens but I just wanted to try this with the Sharpies to see how it worked out! I then used nail glue to apply the fimo shapes and diamantés as the sugar skull eyes! Perfect for Halloween or any time of the year depending on how into skulls you are!! For anyone who might like to know, the Large skull in the background is a ceramic Halloween ornament I picked up from HomeSenses/TKMaxx , for £5.99! I'll be leaving this out in my room all year round now as I love it and its glittery haha!! The small skull is a candle which was from Topshop sale last year! what do you think of this Halloween Sugar Skull Nail art, will you be trying this out?

  25. These look awesome! I would love to give these a go but I think when it came to doing my right hand it would just turn into a big old mess! Interesting idea to use the Sharpies though, I would've thought they'd smudge when you apply the top coat or that they might not dry when used on top of nail polish :) xx
