12 NAILS OF HALLOWEEN: Soft & Simple Spiderweb Nail Art

by - October 04, 2019

I absolutely love a spiderweb mani, I have to say. It's both easy to do and to wear, you can pair just about any colours you want to create it, and it gives a really good chance to highlight a really pretty base with some stamping that amplifies rather than takes away from it. I actually did mani's very similar to today's #12NOH offering on a couple of friends last year and it was a big hit, so I knew that I was going to recreate it this year as well. Sometimes you just have to keep it simple and do what you love - which is kind of my whole vibe with this year's 12 Nails Of Halloween

Honestly, this is probably the most straight forward mani that I'll be doing for #12NOH. I started with two coats of Essie Go With The Flowy, which is a soft dove grey shade with a really subtle shimmer. Because I wanted to amp up the texture of the base, I then went in with one coat of Glam Polish Aneunue, which is pretty much my go to irridescent rainbow flakie topper. It added just a little bit of depth and dimension to the base, which I really think it needed.

For the stamping, I used two different spiderweb images from the Born Pretty Store BP-L099 Stamping Plate and then just because I'm finicky, I added a spider image that I took from the Nicole Diary-L012 Stamping Plate on my accent nail. For all of the stamping, I used my Born Pretty Store Clear Stamper and Maniology Straight Up Black Stamping Polish. (As per usual!)

To finish, I added a coat of Sinful Colors Matte Top Coat to seal in the stamping (with this type of delicate image, you really, really want to make sure that it doesn't smear) and then finished with a generous coat of Seche Vive Quick Dry Top Coat and voila! Super simple!

This mani really is a go to for me and I feel like it's super beginner friendly. The spiderweb images tend to be really easy to transfer onto the nail smoothly and it packs punch while also being fairly delicate. Last year, I did a very, very similar mani using a lime green holo base, but I feel like this really soft, subtle base ends up being maybe just a little bit more wearable!
