Happy Halloween everyone!! I asked myself "how can you make Halloween spider nail art more interesting"? And my answer was a resounding "use the holographic powder"! Shall we?
This mani is made up of a combination of gel and lacquer, holographic powder, vinyls, stamping and a touch of bling. I love how everything plays so nicely together!
I began with a base of Madam Glam Perfect Black on each fingernail and cured. Then, working on one nail at a time, I added Gossip No-wipe topcoat from Daily Charme and cured. I started to buff on the holographic powder immediately afterward with an eyeshadow applicator.
Once I had the look I wanted, I would smooth off any excess powder with the clean side of the applicator, followed by a fluffy brush, before adding the final layer of Gossip gel and curing. I repeated these steps on all of my nails.
Next I used Spider Web Guides from Disturbed Vinyls to create my webs. Again I worked one nail at a time, applying the guide, sponging Rica Blackout over it with a makeup sponge and doing any needed cleanup after I removed the vinyl.
I followed the same steps to add the large Spider Guide from Disturbed Nails to my middle finger. Then I decided to switch it up a bit and stamped the spider web and dangling spider from Pueen's Halloween Party 001 plate using Mundo de Unas Black and my Big Bling Clear Jelly Stamper.
Finally, I tried out the effect of several Swarovski Crystals before settling on Volcano because I just love it's color changes. I added a large Pearl Spider from Winstonia Store to my ring finger and slipped a Crystal Spider Ring from epicetera on Etsy onto my middle finger.
Now if only all of the photos could have come out as holo-licious as this closeup!!
A few family members were really surprised to see me wearing this design, That's because they know the truth...that I am scared shit of spiders. There's no spider too small to scare the hell out of me and if someone doesn't find it, kill it and show me the carnage I won't sleep in that room for days. I actually just did a 2 night stint in the Lazy Boy a week or two ago.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this design! I'm also curious about what you are wearing on your nails this Halloween. Be safe and have fun!
Thanks for reading. I'll see you at the next post!
