Halloween Themed Nails: Sugar Skulls

I warned you there would be more Halloween themed nails!
Here are some fun little sugar skulls.
Sugar skulls originated from Mexican tradition, and are used to celebrate the national holiday of El Dia de Los Muertos, also known as The Day of the Dead.
The sugar skull statues are a way for the living to pay tribute to friends, relatives and even pets who have passed on.
El Dia de Los Muertos is traditionally observed on November 1st & 2nd, but sugar skulls have become popular in American pop culture and are now also associated with Halloween.

For these, I used a combination of nail polish and acrylic paint and a striping brush.
The eyes are made out of fimo clay slices.



  1. Those are super cute! I really love sugar skulls.

  2. I'm in love! Amazing skull nails :-)
