This is a design for the hard-punk-rockin’ chick in all of us! What You’ll Need – Black Nail Polish – White Nail Polish – Detailing Brush Step 1: Apply your base coat and two coats of white polish. Step 2: Drop some black polish on scrap paper, and then paint two little diagonal lines with a detailing brush near the free edge of your nail. You will fill these in later, so don’t worry about perfection. Step 3: Paint a horizontal line connecting the two diagonal lines. Step 4: Now carefully fill in all the space between the lines you made and the free edge of your nail. The leftover white area creates the shape of your skull. Step 5: Give your skull a nose by painting a small, upside-down heart in the middle. Give yourself enough room for teeth below and eyes above. Step 6: Paint two slanted ovals for eyes. You can change the shape of the eyes to give your skull a different expression, but I like this dopey look on my skull. Step 7: Paint small black vertical lines at the base of the skull to make the teeth. Quick Tip Don’t let your work die like your skull—bury it with a generous layer of topcoat and enjoy!
