The One With the Spider Web Re-Creation

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  Happy Sunday everyone!  How are you all doing today?  The weather is kind of weird here.  Yesterday it looked like a cold, Fall day, but instead it was so humid.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up with a pretty nasty sinus infection.  Sigh.

Since it's October, I said I would start sharing some Halloween themed manicures!  Halloween is no where near my favorite holiday, but for some reason I love doing nail art for it.  I have so many ideas and I hope to get through them all.

The first one I'm sharing with you is a re-creation of a last years vampy spider web design.  I loved this look and really wanted to give it a try again this year.  I of course broke a nail right before painting so my nails were shorter than I would have liked them, but I still got it all to work out.

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:
  • Morgan Taylor - Fruit of Temptation
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
  • Zoya - Dahlia
Last year I used a Jessica polish which was more red tinged, where this year I used a more pink/burgundy shaded polish.  I think I like the color better.  Sure, it's not vastly different, but it's different enough for me.

The base behind the spider web is my own concoction.  I mixed some black polish into an old bottle of Out the Door making a sheer black jelly polish.  Actually, I used the same bottle that I mixed last year, which I was surprised I was able to do.  I honestly thought that it was going to be dried up.  Took some shaking, but it came together perfectly.

What do you think?  Like this design?

Until next time, <3.
