TOTD: Skull Black Out

IN the summer I usually paint my toes black, so they will always match any outfit.
But I was in a nailart mood and I always like to try out new things.

So this TOTD, Toes of the day, is made with Konad nail art and an essennce nailart pen.

I just switched my shoes here, see the line on my foot? I was glad I had different shoes with me: We made a 19 hour day, of which we spend 7 hours in public transport! It was worth it though, I saw my parents again, and we had a great garden party at Lommel, Belgium. My godfather and his wife we're celebrating their birtdays(together 120 yrs!), with a big BBQ, and we only had one rainshower, after that, still really warm weather and we could all sit under something anyway. I also saw a lot of people I hadn't seen since my grandparents dies, like their old friends and neighbours. Was really fun to see them and talk to them again!.

Anyway, on to the toes....
I used Rimmel - Black out on all of my toes. Then I used white Konad polish to stamp the skulls from an essence stamping plate. The little silver dots net to the skulls were made with an Essence nail art pen. Which by the way are SO easy to use and they work perfectly! The ink is on waterbase though, so don't forget to use a topcoat! I used one by Rimmel.

Yeah I don't have the nicest toenails around, they always rip off or have a crack, and they are pretty thin. But I almost never wear slippers of any kind and I only wear peeptoes in summer and not that often, so...*shrug*

People at the party thought it was funny and my mom was just amazed at how I did it. hahahah. My mom's so sweet, she even asked me some tips to wear eyeshadow. :)

Do you ever wear nailart on your toes? Or do you wear more bold colours?


  1. Mooi gedaan, die skulls zien er bijna schattig uit ;-)
    Zwart is inderdaad een goeie en zou ook bij veel van mijn outfits staan. Op dit moment nog steeds een koraal kleurtje op mijn tenen dat staat zo leuk bij mijn (eindelijk!) bruine huid

  2. OHHHH I like the skull toes!!! Dangerous toes!!! lol. I would do nail art on my toes. I'm not much into doing it on my hands tho. I like these prints you use, the skulls, flowers and stuff.

  3. @deb, ik draag geen teenslippers of sandalen, dus mijn tenen zijn al weinig zichtbaar in de zomer. DUs van kleurtjes wisselen om bij outfits te matchen is me echt teveel gedoe. Zwate is lekker basic en toch opvallend :)

    @paula, hahaha you and your dangerous skulls, hahah.
