Another morning post, I am on FIRE!
I've got some more Halloween goodness for you today. This is just a simple little design, nothing complicated. I'm sure you've seen a million and one spiderweb designs this season, but TOO BAD! Now you have to look at mine!
For this design I started with a base of two coats of Zoya Petra. It's a really nice smoky gray purpley brownish color. I had a hard time photographing this color, because, SURPRISE, it's a purple. My camera pretty much explodes at the sight of a purple. Trust me though, it's great! I won this polish as part of a prize package for a nail art contest held by Courteney at An Amateur's Nail Obsession. I was so thankful to have won and want to thank Courteney for hosting it!
Then I took a Kiss Nail Art Striper in a gold glitter and painted on the webs. I made the vertical lines first and then the little drapey lines last. The striper was great. I was initially worried about the glitter being too sparse to be usable, but it went on so dense. I only used one stripe for each of the lines in these webs. Faboosh. The brush held the polish awesomely, too. I have tried a Sinful Colors striper before and was not thrilled with it, but this brand was way different!
Finish it off with a little topcoat (I used Poshe this time) and you're done! EASY.
There's not much more to say about this! It looks fun and sparkly from afar, almost like plaid if you squint. It was quick too, which is always a plus.
