Here comes Halloween!!! Time for some spooky nails. Today I’ve got a cute Halloween nail tutorial for you – completed in four easy steps!
As you can see my cat appreciates cruelty free nail polish, and was not very helpful while I was trying to take photos of the ones I used.
For these nails I chose to just paint the design on two nails and use Nostalgic Lacquer’s The Athlete on the others.
Remember to start with a good base coat. I always use Nail Tek Foundation II
The orange is Zoya Jacyn, the black is Zoya Raven and the white is Zoya Purity
I created a gradient background for my spiderwebs. To do this I started with my base colour orange – Zoya Jacyn plus a coat of my HK Girl top coat
// Step One
Using a makeup sponge I created the gradient. I painted a line of Jaclyn and a line of Zoya Raven and dabbed it on each nail a few times each to get the look I wanted. It always looks terrible until you top coat it!
// Step Two
I used a nail art brush to paint the first threads of the web. You could use a toothpick for this. My white is Zoya Purity
// Step Three
I added the inside threads. Don’t worry about perfect lines.
// Step Four
Finally, using your tooth pick for nail art pen, paint on some little silver spiders. Adorable!
I painted mine on with Morgan Taylor Chain Reaction.
What do you think? Will you do a scary mani for halloween?
