Julep Halloween Skull Nails

(Julep Patti was sent previously as a gift)
I am participating in a Halloween nail art contest by Julep.  I decided to create a manicure based on Julep’s Patti nail polish.  Patti is a black polish with silver hexagon and fine silver glitters.  It is a well loved and well used polish in my house.  I thought this polish would look perfect with some skulls.
I started my look with a base coat followed by two coats of N.Y.C. Black Lace Cream.  When this was dry I added one coat of Julep Patti.  Julep Patti has great coverage all on its own.  I chose to layer it over another black polish just to extent the use I get out of this awesome color.  When this was dry, I added a layer of top coat to protect my polish if I made any mistakes stamping.
To add the skulls with the bones on my ring and thumb fingers, I stamped using Salon Express Nail Art Paint in Snow White and Bundle Monster plate BM-225.  For the rest of my nails with the skulls I stamped using Pure Ice Silver Mercedes and Bundle Monster plate BM-211.  I finished everything off with one more layer of top coat.
I love the way these nails turned out.  The black with the silver glitter works well with the skulls to create an awesome Halloween manicure.  If you are looking for some Halloween inspiration you can check out this Halloween manicure tutorial created by Julep.
