Twinsie Tuesday: Halloween

Today's TT theme is Halloween! For a holiday I love so much it seems to take me ages to get into the spirit these days, but I'm going to chalk that up to living somewhere that's still, like, 83F/27C outside at the end of October. I'm happy to see, though, that every year Hong Kong seems to be getting a little bit more and more into the swing of the holiday. There's still a long way to go (if I get two trick-or-treaters at my door this year it'll be a huge upswing!), but with actual costumes and decorations and candies in the stores now, Halloween just might catch on here yet!

I decided I finally wanted to try some spiderwebs for today's Halloween nail art, drawing inspiration from a knockout design over at Lindsey's Lacquer. I started with a base of Sinful Colors Black On Black and added a (purposefully) patchy coat of China Glaze Ick-A-Bod-Y. Next, I sponged a little white around tips or base, then switched to acrylic paint.

The ring finger got a little spider, and the others got grey spiderwebs on top of the sponged-on white. Then I decided to add some attempted highlights and shadow to the webs, pretty much obliterating the white underneath (oops), but I like how they turned out. Thanks, Lindsey, for the adorable idea!
