Cute Easy Halloween Nail Design ~ Sugar Skull Nail Art

Hey everyone! Hope you are doing well. Halloween is approaching and I can’t even wait the days to pass till it is Halloween! I’m sure you have all planned out for this Halloween. I’m planning to dress up like suger skull and the makeup look by Michelle Phan “The Beautiful Death” inspired me a lot. As my face painting skill is not so good, I will need some professional help. But I definitely can paint my nails to match the look. So this cute easy Halloween Nail Design is inspired by Michell Phan’s Halloween make up. Hope you will like this Sugar Skull Nail Art.

Cute Easy Halloween Nail Design

Items and Tools I Used

  • Base Coat
  • White Nail Polish
  • Blue Nail Polish
  • Acrylic Paint – Light Blue, Dark Blue, Violet and Yellow
  • Nail Art Detail Brush
  • Nail Art Flat Brush
  • A piece of Sponge
  • Top Coat

How I did the Nail Design

Start by applying base coat on your nails and let it dry. Base coat adds to the staying power of your manicure and prevents staining/yellowness over time. Paint all the nails with white nail polish and wait for it to dry completely. As this nail design is inspired by The Beautiful Death Makeup by Michelle Phan, I tried matching all the nails with the makeup look.

I chose the thumb to paint the sugar skull. It’s definitely bigger than all other nails and gives you enough space to play with it. Take light blue acrylic paint on your detail brush and make two dots for eyes. Now with the same brush loaded in dark blue paint, cover the top half in “,” shape. Draw a Cross in between two dots using dark blue paint.

Paint an upside down heart to represent nose. Draw a smile line and stitch it by making tiny lines over it. Take yellow paint on the very tip of your detail brush, and outline the eyes by making small dots. Paint rest of the nails with dark blue paint or polish except the Accent nail. Paint a violet Lotus Flower on the Accent Nail.

Apply some light blue polish on a small piece of sponge and cover the top half of blue nails by gently tapping the sponge. Wait for the polish and paint to dry. Seal the whole design with Top Coat.
