Freehand Skull Joker & Playing Card Nails

Allo polish Pals!
I hope you are having a great day so far :) Have you done anything wonderful over the weekend? Has it been a fun and fast paced one or a cosy one in?

Today's nails are from another weekly challenge on Tiny Canvas, the theme was playing cards and while I was excited to try this nail art I also gave myself a really hard time resulting in what I am showing you to be the second version which I am also less happy with, I wish I had worked more on my Jester.... ah well!

For this manicure I began with my Mezmris Nail Lacquer base coat, 'Armor Up' and followed on with two coats of Orly's 'Moonlit Madness' and once dry added a sprinkle of holo with 'Polish Me, Royalty's 'Unicornicopia' – which you wont really see, sadly.. my camera did not want to pick up the holo for this manicure. In the end I rather liked how it looked matte anyway. Everything else was freehanded with my fave Pure Color brushes and topped off with Mezmris Nail Lacquer's top coat, 'Armor'. Finally I added my Barry M Matte top coat.

Have you had playing card nails before? What do you think of my skull-Jester?

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have a fantastic day! I'll catch you again on Wednesday for more naily adventures!
