Sugar Skulls

Published November 2, 2014 by clairestelle8

You will be forgiven for thinking I’ve fallen at the first hurdle and have resorted to another Halloween mani! In recent years the sugar skull image seems to have associated more and more with a halloween but actually it is one of the traditional symbols of the Mexican celebration Dia de Muertos on November 2nd where a decorated skull celebrates the deceased. The day is also commemorated in countries round the world and is known as Day of the Dead or All Souls Day.

So for this mani I used a base of Model’s Own White Light and stamped images from Moyou London Gothic Plate 05 and then painted with polishes from the Model’s Own DiscoPants collection ( possibly not the most appropriately named collection for a Dia de Muertos mani!).


There are many people I will be keeping in my thoughts today. I imagine there are for you too. ❤️

Thanks for reading 🙂 xxx
