Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace with Calavera accent

I have received a few complaints from IRL friends about my blog layout and background, so I decided to change it to a more reader-friendly version.  I take suggestions very seriously, especially coming from the people who I appreciate the most.  So there, I hope Sue and K can read it now =D

Moving on, to this little nail art and nail polish.  I have been trying to 'nail it' with the sugar skulls lately, but I am still practicing.  My nail art skills are not as they used to be, since I haven't been doing it as often.  It really depends on the brush and the time that you put into it, but also on how frequently you practice.  I love free-hand work, and I'm trying to do more on the weekends, when I get free time.

This nail polish seemed appropriate.  If you haven't seen these yet, they have a really nice cap with a skull (a la Dia de los Muertos) on the end or the tip of the cap.  The box is really nice too.  My only problem was the brush.  It is extremely thin.  I wasn't able to tell if the formula was good or not, because the brush wouldn't let me pick up enough nail polish.  I ended up struggling for 3 coats.  The color is gorgeous though, and very shiny.  I'll have to try more from the brand, to see if this was a bad joke, or a bad brush.

    1. Hi Tina, thank you for your interest in my blog. I really appreciate it.

  2. Thank you for reverting back to a white background!
    Love the colour and art. I am not sure what these sugar skull things are; maybe another thing we do not have over here!

    1. Yeah maybe :/ this only appeared in the US a couple of years ago, to be honest. This year, they are everywhere.

  3. I didn't mind the new layout and this one looks good too :-)

    What a cute little face and I love that colour :-)
