Skulls add instant edge to any outfit, but a skull manicure will bring an edgy feel to every outfit! Syl and Sam’s take on Skull Nails is a not-so-standard black and white polish job: start by coating your nails with a matte white polish as the base. Then, after the white dries, take a jet black polish and add two rounded edges on the sides of your nails (these will be the skull’s hollowed cheeks). Then, using a toothpick, draw on three or four black parallel lines in between the rounded edges at the tip of your nail. Add two tiny dots for a “nose” and use the polish brush to paint two larger dots for the eye sockets. Add top coat to seal and protect the polish, and clean up any excess with a Q-tip and nail polish remover. A little creepy and a little cute, you’ll be looking like a rock ‘n’ roll queen for Halloween with this edgy manicure!
