This can be done in Practice Mode.

The achievement description is misleading after the Season 3 update. Rather than cursing an opponent with Searing Skull, you specifically need to land an Instinct Curse, which is the shadow variant.

Spinal uses skulls as part of his special moves; activating Instinct Mode will give you the maximum amount of skulls and constantly regenerate them. Pause, hit cn_RB or cn_LB twice to get to Practice Options, set Instinct Meter to Infinite or Refill.

Activate Instinct Mode and facing right, use cn_downcn_downrightcn_right+cn_Xcn_Y with default controls, or any two punches. Once it hits, achievement unlocked.
