NOTD: Gold skulls and pastels


Hi everyone. I promised to add NOTD posts weekly and I nearly forgot about this weeks manicure :)
I found a packet of nail stickers in my stash and I decided to try them out.  There are three different designs: stars, skulls and rhinestones and they are simple, flexible stickers with clear edges. 
I used Barry M Hi-Shine Nail Paint in shade Prickly Pear and placed the stickers on my nails, once the base was dry. You can see the clear edges around the design, but the final effect looks ok. I know that I wouldn't be able to paint tiny skulls with a nail art pen, so stickers are perfect if you aren't into nail art :)  I should have added a shiny top coat actually, but I forgot. I will do it next time.

I will definitely try the stickers again and experiment with more colours. I went for a lilac shade, because I love pastel colours. Gold would look amazing against black, so that's the next combo I have in mind.

You can find this Eylure Nail Art Kit on asos.com here for £2.50 :) Bargain!
