I BOUGHT BOTH THE TEAL AND THE PURPLE ORNAMENTS : THEY ARE TERRIFIC. I LOVE DAY OF THE DEAD IMAGERY, AM PRETTY PARTICULAR ABOUT THE LOOK OF THE SKULLS I PURCHASE. I WISH THESE WERE AVAILABLE A LITTLE SMALLER BUT AM DELIGHTED WITH THEIR COLORS AND THE AMOUNT OF SPARKLE.
The white sugar skull looks exactly like the picture shows. Received the skull earlier than expected, which was nice. Love it and will definitely be buying more soon.
