8 Spooky Nights - Spiders

That was a nice break we had! The 8 Spooky Nights challenge was on hold for the weekend, but continues today! I'm super excited about this week's challenges since they all sound really fun to do. Today's challenge is spiders.

I'm not a huge fan of spiders, but I'm not arachnophobic either. Still, I think they're fun for Halloween, and they certainly made for some fun designs to do on nails. I actually had trouble just choosing what to put on five nails since I had too many good ideas!

I started off by painting all of my nails gray. I tried to choose a medium shade of gray so that both black spiders and white webs would show up well. I then added the white spider webs, the black spiders, and added the red hourglass for the accenting black widow. I love how the rest contrasts!

I used Julep Meryl as my base color on all nails. I then free handed the webs using a nail art polish (small, thin brush inside) in white. I also free handed the spiders and their legs with a black nail art polish, and added the hourglass on top. 

I'm super excited with how these turned out! I'm also very happy since I did them while feeling pretty sick with a fever. I hope I'm feeling well enough for the rest of these now!
