  • Dotting Tool ( I don’t have a dotting tool so If you don’t just grab a bobby pin and flatten it and tada D.I.Y Dotting Tool )

 

I’m Going to be doing three kinds of sugar skulls one on my Thumb and the other two on my other fingers.

For all the designs first go over all nails with a base coat or nail protector then Paint all your nails with the silver polish, I recommend three coats each then go over once on all nails with the mosaic polish.

Thumb Skull 1

Start By Placing Your diamanties where the eyes would go then using your ” Dotting Tool” dip it into the Blue Nail Polish nd make small dots around the diamanties leaving a small gap in-between  dots then using the ” Dotting Tool” Dip into the Orange nail polish and dot around the diamanties where you left the gap.

With the smaller side of the ” Dotting Tool” dip it into the black nail polish and make and upside don heart shape where the nose would go, Using the Black Nail Art Brush make a line for the mouth you can draw a straight line for normal expression a curved up line for a happy Skull or a  curved down one for a sad or angry skull im doing a slightly curved up line then draw lines diagonally across the line.

For the cobweb on the top draw 3-4 Lines from the top of the nail down to just above the eyes than draw squiggly lines through the lines about 2-3 rows then add some poppy,s or roses with the ” Dotting Tool ” dip it into the red nail polish and dot two dots in the corner of the cobweb and make it look like a flower shape then dot two tiny dot in the center of each with black.

Cover with a Top Coat o Nail Protector and DONE.

Index & Ring Finger Skull 2

With the smaller side of the ” Dotting Tool” dip it into the black nail polish and make and upside down heart shape where the nose would go, Using the Black Nail Art Brush make a line for the mouth you can draw a straight line for normal expression a curved up line for a happy Skull or a  curved down one for a sad or angry skull im doing a slightly curved up line then draw lines diagonally across the line.

Middle Finger and Pinky Skull 3

Draw a half-moon on each side of the finger starting half way of the finger and leaving a gap at the bottom to make the skulls face then where the gap at the bottom is draw a small line to join the half moons together and make very small diagonal lines across the line to make the mouth.

To make the eyes dip your dotting tool into the orange and make a dot where the eyes would go and drag it out slightly to make like a flower shape once its dry dot the center with black for the iris, Then with the black nail polish make small dots around the eyes and two slits in the center for the nose.

For the Headdress dip the small  Brush into the blue nail polish and make a semi-circle at the top of the nail, Using the dotting tool and the orange nail polish make dots around the bottom of the blue semicircle for the flowers, dip the small end of the dotting tool into the red nail polish and make two small dots on the mouth for lips.

Final touches with the gold go over the joint of the orange and blue on the headdress and go over the dots around the eyes with gold too, Seal with Top Coat or Nail Protector and your Done.
