NOTD: Spiderweb Marble

For once, this turned out exactly as I pictured in my head. Super-fun Halloween manicure, and super-easy to do. Hardest part was getting the base coat halfway-decently opaque. I lost count, but I think this was 6 coats? And still visible nail line. Oh, and don't let the camera fool you, this is NEON =) Sinful Colors Summer Peach:

Next, I took my inspiration from this tutorial from over at Trendy Nail. You can translate to your language of choice, or just watch the self-explanatory video at the bottom =) I didn't follow this to the letter, but the only real difference was that instead of going from the middle of the nail towards the corner, I dragged from the corner towards the middle, to get a cool spiderweb effect. As I try to when showing freehand art, I've included a shot of my right hand, which is a tad messier but not much:

I was going to put a rhinestone in each web corner, but I changed my mind after the pinky LOL. My mom tried to tell me it's too early for a full-on Halloween mani, but I have to disagree. I have several Halloween manis I want to do, and since I don't think I could handle wearing orange for like a week straight, I've got to get started =) Thanks for reading.
