Dancing Skeletons with Colors by Llarowe

Happy Friday, dear readers! It has been such a busy week since I've been solo parenting, and I am go glad the hubby got home last night! This poor momma needs a nap! Of course I have some catching up to do as I didn't have the help I had originally planned on this week so.....I'll sleep when I'm dead? It took me far longer than usual with having to work in tiny intervals, but I did manage to create a cute nail art look for Halloween. Let's check it out!
I've been putting on kid-friendly Halloween shows and cartoons the past week or so to get my boys in the spirit of gimmefreecandy Halloween. One of the cartoons I shared was Disney's 1929 short, The Skeleton Dance, and I knew I needed to have dancing skeletons for a nail art look! Of course the short is in black and white, and while I'm sure it would have been cute for nail art in just those shades, I needed more colour!
I wanted something colourful with a slightly different-than-normal Halloween palette, and I am loving this look!
My skulls were a little too plain so I had to make little bows for them. They definitely increased the cuteness factor ten fold!
I used the following nail polishes and products to create this look:

Sweet Nectar (Hypnotic Polish Exclusive)
Miss Grey
Fire Down Below
A Galaxy Far, Far Away (August 2016 POTM)

Skeletons (used as both stencil and decal)


Celestial Cosmetics and Colors4Nails Stamping Line

Purple (#8) Stamping Polish

Black Stamping Polish

Bronze Goddess Stamping Polish

I enjoyed creating this look, and I'm in the middle of painting a new design now!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
