Cutest Creepy Crawlers EVAH! #FallingForNailArt
Time for another double-dose of challenge goodness! Halloween and Creepy Crawlers go together like bread and butter. I saw this amazingly cute mani by IG@ Christabel Nails (on Pinterest) that I knew I had to try and do a version of!
I started off with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and did a sponge gradient with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Electric Sheep. I wasn't worried about it being perfect because nail art was going to come to my rescue and distract you from seeing all the flaws!
I tried to represent all the spidery steps at once. From thumb to pinky - I made circles and then added a little texture so that they would look like fuzzy circles.
Then, I added the web strand that the spider is hanging from, the mouth pincers and eight legs.
The eyes were the best part because they really make the cuteness. Two big white dots that meet in the middle, with black dots inside, and then another set of teeny white dots inside those for highlights.
All the finished spiders, but sans topcoat. Are they not freakin' cute, even for spiders?
All up in your nailz, spinnin' our cutez webz.

Would you wear spiders on your nails if they were this cute?
