Samantha’s Mid-Week Inspiration: Cobweb Nails

Hi again everyone! This weeks post brings yet another nail art tutorial. With October starting this week, that can only mean one thing … Halloween is coming at the end of this month! Therefore this weeks nail art takes a slight spooky gothic theme and I have created cobweb nails. Once again I have created a step-by-step guide to show you how to create this look yourself and this weeks is very simple with just 3 steps and 3 products.


What will you need?

As I mentioned there are just 3 products needed to create the cobweb nails. These are Nail Varnish in Creator and Top Coat and a Precision Ink in Scribe. Some of you may be thinking why is she using Precision Ink on nails? Precision Ink works amazingly for detailed nail art! The thin brush makes it easy to achieve fine details in the design.


Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Begin by painting all nails in a base of Creator. This is the perfect colour for halloween as it it a black varnish with specks of silver glitter.


Step 2: Using Precision Ink in Scribe begin applying the cobweb design onto the nails. I started with the lines going from the center to the edges of the nail and then added in the joining webbing after.


Step 3: The third and final step to this nail art is painting all nails in Top Coat to prevent any chipping and add a shine over the nails.


Hope you have enjoyed this nail art tutorial. As always if you recreate this look yourself for halloween make sure you send us a picture.
