Spider and web Halloween nail art tutorial

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

I love holiday nail art. Halloween is no different and it allows for so much creativity. I wanted something glitzy - yet in the spirit of Halloween it had to have a little bit of creepiness to it.

So how about a holographic spider web on your nails? 

I want to show you step by step how I did this and then you have the option to change it up if you want. 

I used Color Club Rad Nomad for a base color. It is a deep, dark gray shade that works quite as a canvas for this nail art.

Step one: apply the base color.

Then using a striping brush and Color Club Harp On It I added diagonal lines from the corner of my nail. Harp On It is an amazing silver holographic polish.

Step two: add diagonal lines from corner of the nail.

Then I continued with Harp on it and painted the radiating lines of the spiderweb. I almost left it just like this I liked it so much!
Step three - paint connecting lines.
Step three - paint connecting lines.
Then I used a dotting tool and dotted a large dot for the spider's body and a smaller one for the head. I used Color Club Cosmic Fate. You can see that I actually started by using the black holographic Color Club polish Beyond. But there just wasn't enough contrast for it to show well. So I dotted over it with Cosmic Fate.
 
Step four - make a large dot for the spider's body and a smaller one for the head.

Then I added the legs. Okay, I admit my spider looks a little squished. But I have to say that is exactly how I like any spider that is around me to be - squished. I am not a fan of spiders!

Step five - paint the legs

 I added a top coat of Seche Vite and I had a sparkling spiderweb on my nails!

I love the way the holographic web shines. 

What's going to be on your nails for Halloween? Are you going to include a holographic element?

The polishes in this post were purchased by me.
