NCC Halloween Month #3 - Arachnophobia!

Hello everyone! I'm up to the third of my four Halloween manis for the Nail Challenge Collaborative, and following on from skeletons and zombies, today I have some spidery nails!

I started with two coats of Models Own Grace Green. It can be such a subtly elegant colour when used corrcetly, but I was looking for a creepy, slightly dirty green, and it worked perfectly for this too! I then added some spider webs with a black Sharpie. For the accent nail, I added two Siam Red crystals then painted on some spidery legs using Ciate Mistress and Nail Essentials Silver Shimmer. Everything apart from the crystals was then topped with Seche Vite.

I definitely didn't take as much time as I could've (or probably should've) done with the webs, but I am really happy with the effect of the 3D spider so its a least a partial victory!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the NCC Spookfest using the links below :)


  1. This is gorgeous. I just did a 3D spider for another challenge (haven't posted it yet), and it did NOT come out as good as this one did, lol! :)

  2. Thanks Michelle! I really didn't like hteis when I finished it, but luckily it looked better in the photos than in real life lol! Will look out for yours! :)
