Spooky Spider Halloween Gradient

Halloo! 🙂

Halloween Purple Spiderweb Nail Art

Here are some Spooky Halloween Spiders!

I decided to have a go at a new to me technique called a Radial Gradient, If you haven’t come across this before, it’s circular so instead of painting the polish across the sponge you paint it in a circle, then apply it to the nail in the same way.

I think that for a first attempt I was far to ambitious trying to use four shades (I should have tried with two to start with)

The products I used are

  • A England – Elaine
  • Revlon – Amethyst
  • China Glaze – Get Outta My Space
  • Revlon – Stiletto
  • Stamping Plate – Moyou Suki 10
  • Hit The Bottle – Black
  • Seche Vite
  • Makeup Sponge

For the gradient I used Stiletto, Elaine, Amethyst and Get Outta My Space, then a coat of Seche Vite.

When that had dried I used Black Hit The Bottle stamping polish and Moyou Suki plate 10 for the spiders and webs then another coat of SV to finish it off.

I have so many ideas for Halloween nail art that I think it’s going to take me all month to share them all! 🙂

I found that the Nimbus technique is really fun! And definitely something that I’m going to try again!

I started out with a couple of coats of white on white as the base, then starting with Vendetta which is the darkest polish I used a cotton bud soaked in acetone and polish to dot on the colour.

When each colour was dry I repeated the process (with a new cotton bud for each colour)

Then I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite!

I used Plate MM07 from Messy Mansion, this is the first time I’ve used this plate and it’s really lovely! I used Konad SP Black then another coat of Seche Vite
