Feliz Día de los Muertos and 31 Day Nail Art Challenge --- Day 26, Pattern

Hey guys! So, officially, Day of the Dead is tomorrow, however the festivities kick off on Halloween.The basic idea of Día de los Muertos is to honour dead ancestors. It's similar to Halloween, except it's more of a happy celebration, rather than about scaring people. Sugar skulls are popular art connected to the Day of the Dead. They aren't your typical creepy looking skull, but rather elaborately decorated skulls which look quite beautiful. Anyways, enough background; here are the nails. 

Here's my right hand thumb.

And my left hand thumb.

My right hand.


And my left hand with the two horribly short (for me) nails. :p

I figure that the skulls are sort of a pattern, so therefore, they are my 31 Day Nail Art Challenge, Day 26 design. The black background is Black Satin by Rimmel and the skulls are the Migi nail art white pen. The detail is acrylic. 


  1. These are awesome! And it looks just as well on your dominant hand! In Mexican Town (in Detroit) lots of people were sporting festive nails. You would have made everyone proud lol :D

    1. Haha. :p I just think the whole celebration is super cool!

  2. Loove this, the detail is amazing!!

  3. This is truly beautiful, and the intricacy is amazing!


I would love to hear from you guys! Let me know what you think of the blog, the art and most of all, what YOU would like to see on here!
