spider webs

its that time of year again when you can dress up as anyone you want. instead of dressing myself up, i chose to dress up my nails instead.

essie sand tropez
essie mochacino
essie sew psyched
black striper pen

step 1: paint two coats of essie sand tropez (nude).

step 2: once the base is completely dry, using a sponge, do a gradient nail using essie mochacino (mid nail) and sew psyched (nail tip). for instructions on how to do a gradient nail using a sponge see this video. 

step 3: paint one coat of seche vite fast dry top coat. this will blend the colors and even the surface.

step 4: using a black striper pen, draw three to four black lines starting at one corner of the tip of your nail. 

step 5: draw C's in between the lines to create the webs. the points of the C's should face down toward the cuticle. 

now it's time to enjoy your spidey nails. happy halloween!
