Spider Web Splatter

Spider Web Nail Art

Day 11 of the #BundleMonster #MonsterScream challenge is "spiders."  I've been wanting to try the water spotting technique again for a while.  I tried it once and it did NOT turn out, but I thought it would look really cool as spider webs for my spider nails.  Happily, this time it worked!


Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Julep - Sydney
  • Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Poppy
  • Sally Hansen - White On
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Black Noir
Other Supplies:
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM13 (spider)
  • Rubber stamper
  • Cup
  • Spray hand sanitizer
  • Base and top coats

This design can be a bit tricky if the water spotting doesn't come out right.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a base color in Sydney.  It is a vibrant orange, perfect for Halloween, and dark enough to really make the white spider webs pop.

  2. Add a couple layers of Chunky Holo Poppy for some sparkle.  It's a little hard to see in this picture, but trust me, there's glitter on there.

  3. Create the spider webs.
    • Fill a cup with water.
    • Float one drop of white polish on the surface of the water.

    • Spray once with hand sanitizer.

    • Dip nails in the spotted polish (you can dip more than one nail at a time).  Hold your nails parallel to the water, lining up where you want the polish, then you can straighten your fingers once they are in the water.  Be sure to remove any excess polish still floating on the water before pulling your fingers out.

  4. Stamp the spiders (BM13) in black in various locations on each nail.
