Halloween Web Nails

Freehand Nail Art 

Well well can you believe it! I've actually painted my nails for me! After a totally lazy week, to recharge my batteries, I had a go at some freehand Spider Web nails using a nail calligraphy pen I purchased from eBay ages ago. I hadn't got round to using this pen, and to be totally honest didn't think I would. The reason for buying it was to see if freehand was easier than using a brush. I also bought some Drawing Ink too. This mani is inspired by Susie from Nail Art Education. 
I painted my nails with 2 coats of 471 Summer Orange gel polish from VB Line and wiped off the tacky residue.

Practiced some doodling on paper first, I painted webs and spiders on each nail. Once the ink had dried I top coated with VB Line gel top coat.

This calligraphy pen was super easy to use, I found freehand so much easier, as I had more control than I find with a brush. I'd definitely recommend a pen like this for anyone who loves freehand. The choice of nibs means you can draw the thinnest of lines.
For a first real attempt drawing with this pen, I'm so happy with this mani.
Have a happy and safe Halloween weekend.
Much love...

  3. Oh interesting! I don't think I would have considered using a calligraphy pen for nail art. I might have to dig mine out and give it a spin. I will say that I'm quite impressed at the level of control you had over the whole thing.
