Leather & Skulls

Halloween always goes to quickly, and fully half of the things I planned remain undone. Sigh...maybe next year. But for now, at least we'll always have October...and skulls.

Leather & Skulls

I've been itching to do skulls for months, so it is kinda fitting that I finally got around to them this month! I am still totally enjoying hand painting things, and I figured skulls would be a good bit of practice. Yeah...I need more practice, for sure. I'll be getting right on that.

This might be the most wearable "Halloweeny" nail art I have done thus far. Its still very holiday-appropriate, but I don't think its too far. What is your most wearable Halloween combo?

  1. Super cute! Courtney and I decided that Halloween nails are totally appropriate through at least Thanksgiving, so just keep churning them out. If people can force Christmas on me already, I can continue to force Halloween on them for awhile longer, right?

  2. I was thinking of doing an orange and black glitter combo, something very boring later this week. Or some very complicated halloween skittle nails. We'll see how I feel after work!

  8. I love this! I'm currently sporting mummy nails, and I like that they are neutral. From a distance, you wouldn't know they were Halloween nails. They're good for those that have to tone down their nails (Poor People!!).

  11. I love these! If you pull back instead of look at just one nail/skull, they look like cartoon jellyfish or ghosts. Kill 3 birds with one stone! haha
