If you're scared of pitch black or not crazy about orange, you can change the background for these Halloween nails to be any color you want. Lime green, white, purple, or red are also great Halloween colors! The color choices are completely up to you—and your costume.
When using bold colors such as orange or black, it's important to put down a base coat to prevent staining. A base coat also evens out any ridges and unevenness in your nail plate. Try a ridge-filling base coat for this extra protection. After you apply base coat, apply two coats of your base polish color. I used a pumpkin-patch orange. Here's how to weave a wicked-cool web.
1. From a corner of your nail, paint (or draw with a gel pen or Sharpie) long straight lines. The farther apart the straight lines are from one another, the easier it will be to draw your web. Plan your lines accordingly.
2. Between the lines, draw small arcs connecting each line to the one next to it. Again, it's easier to draw the arcs if your lines are far apart.
3. Continue toward the center of your web until it looks full.
Seal your design with a great quick dry top coat, and you won't be tricked into smudged nails! Whether your nails are as long as Elvira's, or as short as a mummy's nails, these spiderwebs will show off your tricks.
