Lately I’ve been really loving neon nail polish, and I wanted to wear the neon ombre manicure I did before, but with a twist.
I combined the neon ombre manicure with skull nail art that I did before. This is a great way to not only rock super-bright neons, but also to give them a little edge.
Hehe, I really wanted to wear skulls again because I’m longing for Hallowe’en. Strange…considering that the weather is so balmy, but I think my new favourite season is the fall – that’s when the best fashion and makeup comes out. Plus I don’t have to worry about the humidity giving me Poodle Hair in the fall!
What do you think of this manicure? Too obnoxious, or just obnoxious enough? Hehe!
P.S. Haha, one of the skulls has a snaggletooth!
Neon Skull Nail Art Swatches
All swatches have:
- Nubar Foundation Base Coat
- From thumb to pinkie (3 coats of each, except for Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, which I used 4 coats for)
- Black: Milani Nail Art Nail Lacquer Black Sketch (This was provided by PR.)
- 1 coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
P.S. In case you’re curious, you can see the neon ombre manicure I did (without the skulls) here.
P.P.S. If you’d like a step-by-step tutorial with photos and written instructions for creating my skull nail art, you can find it here.
This look combined two of my favourite manicures, so I’m a happy camper! For me, this is just the right amount of obnoxious that I need in my life.
And now I’m curious to see if I can combine 2 other nail-art designs for a twist. It’s kind of fun to see how you can come up with something fresh from what you’ve done before. Any suggestions?
What’s the latest neon nail polish you wore? Would you rock skull nails in the summer? Is it Hallowe’en yet?
