Now lets show you how we created this look!

STEP 1

First of all it is important to make sure your nails are clean and ready to be painted before we start, so we need to do a little bit of preparation. If you have nail varnish on already, you will need to take it off with some nail varnish remover. After this is done, I usually wash my hands just to just to ensure my nails are completely clean.

Then it’s time to tidy your nails up a little and shape them to how you want them with your file. If you want make your nails appear longer you can push back your cuticles. If you place your hand in some warm water for a few minutes, it will help soften your skin making it easier for you to do this.

Once you are ready, you should apply a base coat to your nail as this will protect your nails from being stained but also will make applying your nail varnish much smoother. We used the Natural Collection, Vitamin Base Coat (1) to do this.

 

STEP 2

Once your base coat is dry (this shouldn’t take too long), we can start moving on to the more exciting parts – deciding what colour you want your nails to be! For this look, we decided to paint all the fingers with the nail varnish in the colour French White (2) and the thumb in the nail varnish in the colour Blackjack (3). We applied two coats of the nail varnish as this made sure the nail was covered well. We recommend you apply two thin coats rather than one thick one as the thicker the coat, the longer it will take to dry!

 

STEP 3

Once the white nail varnish is dry, the real fun begins – time to start creating the spiders! We decided on having the spiders on our fingers – we’ll be adding something else to our thumb later! We placed dots with the thicker dotting tool (6) with the nail varnish in the colour Blackjack (3). This lets you plan out where you would like the spiders to be easier!

 

STEP 4

Once you are happy with where you have placed the dots for the spiders, it is now time to add the legs! We used the the thinner dotting tool (4) to create them with the nail varnish in the colour Blackjack (3).

 

STEP 5

Once you have finished creating the spiders on the fingers, it’s now to start creating the spiders web on the thumb! We painted on 3 lines with the long pointed drawing brush (5) with the nail varnish in the colour French White (2). We started from the bottom of the nail and painted the line upwards.

 

STEP 6

Once you have painted on the 3 lines, it’s time to add the final touches – ‘weaving the web’ together! We created this by drawing thin curved lines in between the 3 lines, so they would be joined together. We did this with the thinner dotting pen (5) with the nail varnish in the colour French White (2).

And that’s it! It’s a great nail look that you can create for Halloween!
