Copycat Saturday: Skulls and Diamonds

Hello lovelies. How are you all? I'm glad its the weekend (as usual) and I am looking forward to a meal out with my friends this evening.

Its time for this week's Copycat manicure and this week I have recreated this design by XOXO Alexis Leigh. I haven't copied this one exactly, I have made a couple of changes (mainly because I don't own suitable stamping plates) but it is definitely very similar.

Click below for full details on this manicure.

I used a base of OPI - This Gown Needs A Crown on all my nails apart from my ring finger which was W7 - Black.

I secured my studs using top coat. 

I freehanded the diamond on my ring finger, using the same two polishes and a detail brush.

I also freehanded my skull with my detail brush. My crossbones are a little wonky!

I was pretty happy with these, it was fun to wear something over the top and blingy. I was going to attempt to paint a unicorn on my thumb like in the original design.. but I decided I'm not that brave so just went with a stud.

What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments.

Thanks for looking.
