Dia de Los Muertos Mani

After Halloween, comes Dia De Los Muertos, which means Day of the Dead, in English. Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures... The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.

Visiting graveyards is also a part of our culture. We visit the graves of our loved ones twice a year actually, during religious holidays, one right after Ramadan and the other one on the Feast of Sacrifice.

Well, for this mani, I used a long time untried, Pastel 124. It is an interesting color and you know I'm highly disabled in this area, so what you see, is the color of this polish... :P




Here's the part I played with my polish. :)

For pinkie, I used an Essence stamp. For the ring finger, BM413... I love this guy's mustache. :P

The heart and the Monster High logo is from Mundo de Uñas Monster High plate...  I used the stamping decal method to fill them with red. I still have trouble attaching them to nails, so any help is appreciated...




My thumb had the voodo head from BM413, but it did not photograph well, so I did not use it... :)

Feliz Dia de los Muertos a todos... :)
