I know it's been a while since I uploaded a normal post, but things have just been so hectic lately. I've had deadlines galore which led to me now having time to do anything else.
But! Now I'm back and just in time for some Halloween nails! I love themed nails; they allow for so much creativity. For Halloween you could have: zombies, mummies, blood, spiders etc.
I decided to stick to a more traditional Halloween icon: the cobweb. This has always been the hardest one for me, in past years, as the fine lines always end up squiggly. I can't seen to keep completely steady when using a thin nail art brush, especially on my left hand. So I came u with a solution; i'ts not anything new.
I purchased a large bumper pack of 24 sharpies from Costco last month and I've not had anything to do with them. I remembered reading of a person who used sharpies to draw her nail art on.
I though I'd replicate the method. I used Collection's LE Mardi Gras in white out to create the background; making sure that there was an even and completely opaque layer on the nail. I had to make sure the polish had hardened enough as to not drag when using the sharpie. I used a black fine tipped sharpie to first create lines going from the corner of the nail, before joining them up with curved lines.
Make sure to use a top coat, otherwise the sharpie will start to smudge and a purple haze will begin to spread from the webs. I woke up this morning with them smudged so badly that the webs were indistinguishable from the rest of the nail.
I would like to say a thank you to those who read this little blog! It means a lot, guys.
I'd love to know what everyone thinks, so drop a comment if you want.
