Día de los Muertos

This is my final Halloween-ish manicure. Actually, I did Día de los Muertos which starts today and ends on November 2nd.  I also thought it was fitting because I am a Spanish teacher.
With flash. The tombstone says DEP which stands for Descanse en Paz (or Rest in Peace) in Spanish.
My clean-up is getting better, but I still need to get better at it.

Natural Sunlight, but it's pretty cloudy. I love this glitter top coat I used on my index & ring fingers. It's by Sally Girl and called Way 2 Disco. It's almost got a halo effect to it. In some lights, it looks blue and in others green and every where in between the two colors.

 Here's a close up of my thumb. I messed up on the yellow a bit so you can see a smudge by his nose. The white is a bit streaky. I know whites can be like this, but I think I have a pretty crappy white. 

And here's the one that I need on my right hand hand. I don't think I did too bad even though I'm a righty.

Here's a list of all the colors I used.
Base coat for all: CND Stickey
La catrina (skeleton): white is Migi nail art pen color (I just used the brush part, but I really need to get white), Migi nail art pen for the black. Flower dots are Maybelline Express Finish Sunshine, Wet N Wild Sunny Side Up, Sally Hansen Green with Envy, and a no-name pink
Tomb: Sinful Colors Black on Black; Nina Ultra Pro Ink-ling for tomb; and grass is a combo of O.P.I. Cuckoo for this Color, Revlon Minted, and Sally Hansen Green with Envy
Tree: 2 coats of ELF Light Pink for the background and Migi nail art pen for the trees
Ring/Index finger: 2 coats of Sinful Colors Black on Black and Sally Girl Way 2 Disco
Topped everything off with 1 thick coat of Seche Vite.
