Dark Waters

Black sea nail art with skull charm

Another pirate look, but I love skulls.  I used a black polish that has blue glitter in it, with the +Bundle Monster water nail stamp from the Sun Kissed Collection, and a gold metal skull charm.  It is simple, but somewhat sinister and dark.  I love it! received the skull charms from Born Pretty Store in exchange for an honest review.  The charms come in a set of 5, in either gold or silver.  I chose gold since pirates like gold.  I also wear more gold jewelry, so I would get more use out of gold charms than silver.  But the silver looks great too.  I like that the metal is a little mottled and not smooth so it looks older.  The charms have a nice curve to them, so they are flush with your nail when applied.  This is perfect because there are no spaces between the charm and your nail, making it less likely to get caught on stuff easily.  Wearing it today, I haven't had any issues with it catching on anything, and I didn't feel like I had to be overly careful.  To buy these charms or other nail art from Born Pretty Store, use coupon code GHLQ10 for 10% off your entire purchase.
