Halloween Spider....or Scorpion



This is my first time using a squeeze-nail art pen. I know I spotted this Fing'rs nail art set at CVS in the USA, but it is not on their website.... I haven't seen this in Canada, but on my shopping this weekend i will pop into all these stores in my town to see if they carry this.

This thing is awesome! I have had this for a while but really didn't get into it yet. I did use those stars for another manicure recently ( HERE ) but these nail art stripers and fine pens used to intimidate me. But with a little practice I think I can whip up some cool designs.


I did a test run on the spider web design on a piece of paper and it was super easy so I jsut went for it. There is at least 10 You Tube tutorials on how to make spider webs on your nails.

For the spider I used Nailene Crystals; a tear drop shape and a small circle crystal for the head. The legs are just two short lines. I actually think this looks more like a scorpion, which is cool, too. I'll have to work on that.

Also, I think I should have drawn the spider line on the frost, where it's head is, and not on the back ens, becuase....ummmm....

anyhoo =  This was super easy to do.  I will invest in a few more colors of these tiny nail art pens eventually. For now I have a white one and this silver one which came with this Fing'rs Nail Creationz Nail Art set.



If anyone can find a non fuzzy photo of this... that would be lovely!

Helpful (unsolicited) advice?

When drawing spiders, make the front four legs go forward, and the back four go backwards.
(And always make sure there are a total of EIGHT, otherwise it's an ant. *wink*)

I like the jewel body!

This actually reminds me a lot of a whip scorpion which is just cool. I really like it, and you are right in having the web coming from the butt end so no worries, we get it. I think hannagrrl's advice is good though as far as the legs are concerned. If I may add my two cents worth of unsolicited advice, have all of the legs come out from a more central point between the head and body, the fact that they're along the body length is contributing to the scorpion effect. I think it's awesome that you inadvertently created a scorpion though.
