8 Spooky Nights: Night 1 - Skulls

Hey everyone! I'm participating in my first blogger challenge - 8 Spooky Nights hosted by PeaceLoveLacquer!

The first challenge is Skulls! I, like many nail bloggers, immediately thought of sugar skulls. Once I started though, I quickly got derailed and ended up with these beauties!

They look much better in person - Essie's Shine of the Times was used on all the skulls but barely shows up in the photos on white.

Here's a peek at what to expect until Halloween! I've already got tomorrows design done(the only downside is not getting to enjoy my nails longer!) Thankfully we're skipping Saturday and Sunday since I'm going to visit my brother (and niece who is the CUTEST thing ever!) If I have time I'll give some bonus nails or maybe a makeup look!

There are also a lot of other amazing bloggers participating, please check them out!

The final bit I promised is your chance to get involved! Peace Love Lacquer is hosting a non-blogger contest!

If you dont have a blog, you can join in too! Non-bloggers can submit in a contest and win a prize at the end! Im not going to say what it is... it will be a surprise for now. But I will tell you it is an aaaaaammmmmmaaaaazzzzzziiiiiiiinnnnnnnggggg Indie Halloween polish. Need I say more?

  1. These are Fantastic! I really like the copper accents!

    1. Thanks! I used Essie's Shine of the Times for the accents, so they shifted colors in the light!

    1. Thanks!! Hopefully I keep it up through the challenge! :)

  3. I really love how Shine of the Times looks on this design!

    1. Thanks! I had originally planned on using different glitters for each skull, but once I put Shine of the Times on one nail I couldn't stop! I forgot how lovely it was!
