'Tis the Season to be Jolly!

No, this isn't a Christmas manicure... and if it were, it'd be a totally morbid holiday manicure! Oh, wait, I DID do a skully christmas manicure last year. Oops. :-D Today's nail art is in honor of Robert Louis Stevenson's 160th birthday, which is today! :) As you may know, one of his famous works of literature is 'Treasure Island', a tale of pirates and buried gold. In reference to that, I chose to do Jolly Roger nail art today! (as if I needed a reason to do pirate nails :-P)

I used American Apparel Hassid as a base, with Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud for the skull and crossbones. Topped it off with my still-fresh and amazingly well applying Seche Vite top coat. lol



  1. Love this one Liss (as you probably expected :-) And how can you not love Treasure Island?

  2. Could you possibly make a tutorial for this??
    I am the biggest Jolly Rolly/ pirate fan... Please oh please oh please!! You would deffinately make one girl very happy!
    I need lessons since I'm not artistic at all =(
    Please please please!

  3. Awesome nails, awesome title. :D And I second Shannon, you should definitely make a tutorial.

  4. SUCH creative designs lately :D
    if you're looking for suggestions, perhaps a harry potter one or a very potter musical one, in the spirit of the 7th movie 1st half :P ???

  5. LOVE! P.S. More tutorials please!

  6. omg you gotta do a how-to on that nail style

  7. Go Pirates! I love this!
    Could you do a tutorial on this design please? i might not be that great at drawing but I'm willing to try for pirates. :D


Go on, comment... you know you want to. ;-P
