Simple Skulls Tutorial

This week I created a quick skull mani for Halloween, and thought I'd include a mini tutorial for you to go with it. All you need are two polishes, a small brush and a dotting tool. See the five simple steps below...

Step One: Paint two coats of your base colour, I chose 
Rimmel - White Hot Love*, and let it dry

Step Two: Fill the corners of each nail in with your second colour, 
mine is Rimmel - Blindfold Me Blue*, using a small brush

Step Three: Continuing with the small brush, add three stripes into 
the bottom half of your skull shape

Step Four: Using your dotting tool add large dots for eyes

Step Five: Back to the small brush to add a little upside 
down V for the nose and you're done

Now just add your fave top coat and here's what you'll end up with!

As soon as I finished these I had a rather strange realisation... although they look like skulls on first impression, they also look a lot like sad jellyfish. Now all I can see are the poor little jellyfish!! They look so upset!

Apologies for the awful chip on my middle finger, I had a catastophe. If you follow us on Instagram you may have seen this already. I thought about going back to round nails to cover it, but decided to wait it out and stick with square. So sorry that they'll be a bit wonky for a while!

If you do give our little skulls/jellyfish make sure you share your efforts with us!



  1. Thanks for this tutorial! These little skulls are adorable :)

  2. My son is a punisher fan. These skulls will definitely make him happy. Yays.
