Why Nude Spooky Halloween Nails?
I know you may be wondering why nude nails? Why not orange and black or purple and green for Halloween?
Because I work full time in an office, I like to try to keep it toned down when it comes to Halloween inspired nails.
What do I need to make creepy Halloween nails?
You really only need a few simple things to make this spider web nail design.
How to make a spider web design on your nails
Check out the video for the entire process from start to finish.
- Apply a base coat
- Apply 2 coats of nude polish (allow drying in between)
- Then, apply the sparkly nail polish to one nail.
- Using a fine tip brush, create the spider web.
Can I skip the nude nail polish?
If you would like to create these spooky Halloween nails directly on your nail without using a nude polish, you certainly can. But, make sure that you use the base coat to help the design last longer.
You can easily change up the design a bit to match your clothes or your color choices.
- Make the spider’s body purple or red by using a different color nail polish.
- Paint the spider on orange nail polish if you prefer to use that instead of nude.
- Use a black glitter polish instead of silver.
Can I do the spiderweb on every nail?
Yes, you can change up these creepy Halloween nails any way you like. Make a whole bunch of spiders or spiderwebs or try the design on alternating nails.
For a sparkly look, you can also make the spider’s body have a glittery topcoat. Just be sure you use a topcoat that is light enough to let the design show through.
Troubleshooting your nail design
Why did my spiderweb bleed?
Be sure that you have used a base coat before you paint the spiderweb. And, make sure that each coat is completely dry before you apply the next one.
Always use a fine point brush and not the brush from your nail polish. You need to keep the strokes very thin to make this design.
Why is the spider’s body a blob?
Use a dotting tool to make the spider’s body and not a drop of polish from your brush. A nail dotting tool helps you get just the right amount of polish for your spooky Halloween nails.
How do I make my nude polish darker?
All nail polish is not created equally. I really like Essie polish because it gives great coverage with just two coats.
You may need to try another brand of polish to get more coverage. If you layer on too many coats, it’s likely that your nail design will get gummy.Watch the nail art video
