Busy Spider-y Halloween Ruffian Nail Art

Do you ever recycle your nail art? My Glam Halloween Dotticure nails were wearing like iron - no chips/bumps/scrapes or anything, just some re-growth at the bottom when I went to trim my nails yesterday evening. Today I decided, what the hey! The orange and dot base would go perfectly with some additional details and stamping. So here's some ruffian Halloweeny nail art with spiders, spiderwebs, and some eyeballs here and there!

This worked out much better than I thought it would! I used Bundle Monster plate BM13 and Barry M silver foil and stamped some spiderwebs on all of my nails in different directions. Then  a few swipes with black polish on a striper brush here and there to add some legs to some of the previous dots to make spiders (also because I couldn't get the spider to transfer from BM13, sadface). Then to do some eyeballs I used white and black and dotting tools to do small eyes here and there (white dot first, smaller black dot second).

Finally to cover up my larger-than-usually-perferred cuticle gap (I was going to call it my 'cute gap' because I shorten things IRL but didn't think anyone would get it, so now this is like me explaining a joke at a party. Cool!), I used Cult Nails Grunge = perfection. Seriously, the best part of this whole thing is the perfect shade of zombie flesh that Grunge adds to the whole thing (not that I think of it as 'zombie flesh color' typically, mostly just because of the Halloween context).

The aptly named Grunge is so refined and wonderfully perfect with this, and I love the whole thing so so much. I am glad I went with this shade instead of a lime green or more black because this way is pretty perfect! How many times can I say how perfect I think this is? Perfect!

Have you been doing Halloween nail art? Are you doing something fun to celebrate the spooky candy holiday this year?! I think I'm watching scary movies on the roof of my boyfriend's workplace*, which sounds pretty darn fun!! [*It's a planned movie-watching-party, not like we're breaking and entering because that would be horrible since I'm blogging about it]
