Glow-in-the-Dark Spiderweb Nail Art for Halloween
For this look I applied two coats of Pink Gellac Beautiful Black on three of my nails and stamped them with a spiderweb pattern from the Cheeky Happy Holidays stamping plate. On my ring finger and thumb I applied two coats of Pink Gellac Sunshine Yellow and then created a gradient by brushing CND Shellac Lush Tropics onto the tips. I applied a very thin coat of FingerPaints Lots of Luau over the nails to add a bit of glitter, and then drew a spider using a black stamping polish. I added two coats of Gel II Rave over all of my nails to give them a good glow effect.
My lightbox really charged up the glow-in-the-dark polish creating a great glow. The glow started off really strong, but did fade within a minute or two. They glowed for quite a while though the glow was faint after a few minutes. I tested Rave over dark and light gel polish colors – it glows over all colors, but the glow is more vibrant when applied over light colors. Note that the green tint can alter the base color slightly, and the polish may need to be shaken before using. When I first applied Rave the results were splotchy – that was because my polish had separated. After giving it a good shake it went on nice and evenly.
