It has been a long day. I didn't get much sleep last night and have been exhausted all day. We had a few earthquakes last night that kept us up. I am always worried that our two large fish tanks will fall over or the light hanging above one will drop and kill the fish, which would make me sad, so every time I get out of bed and stand guard next to them.
Anyways, on a lighter note Halloween won out on my poll so I will be showing mostly Halloween themed nail art until the end of October. To start off I wanted a tutorial for something very simple that could easily be done, spiders and webs.
If you would like to know how to do this design keep reading for the tutorial!
I started off with OPI's Gargantuan Green Grape as my base. For the webs I started with fanned out lines and the spiders are one large dot and a dot slightly smaller next to it.
From there added two small lines to the large dot for fangs and four angled lines on each side for legs to create the spider.
Now to finish the webs. Simply make curved lines attaching the fanned out lines together. I like to start in the widest area and work my way back.
Continue connecting all the lines until you have something like this.
Add top coat and you are done! How easy was that? Now you have creepy crawly nails!
I did spiders on my thumb and ring finger and webs on the rest.
Does anyone remember the creepy crawlers toy years ago that you used colored goo and put it in metal molds and made your own like plastic rubber spiders and scorpions and stuff? You know, it was like an easy bake over but with goo and and you made insect things you couldn't eat? We had one of those and I had no clue why but we loved it! I just remembered that, so weird.
