Cinco De Mayo, But Not Really!

Despite my obsession with skulls, I’ve never attempted a sugar skull before. Now I know why, they’re very tricky to paint on to your nails! I don’t really love this outcome but for a first try, it’ll do!  

The base colour is Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream and the Sugar Skull is freehanded with a striping brush and acrylic paints. Then I added some Barry M Blue Glitter with a sponge for the gradient effect. The chevron is freehanded and the yellow stripe is acrylic paint.
