Black Widow

Hi everyone!  We went to see The Avengers recently, and it gave me an idea for a Black Widow mani!

I started with three coats of Hits Zeus, a gorgeous charcoal grey holo.

Next, I taped off my ring finger to create the hourglass design, and then applied one generous coat of Hits Ares, a fiery red holo.

Black Widow webs are different than that of other spiders ... there's really no rhyme or reason to them. 

So I placed one dot of Layla Mercury Twilight, a silver holo, on a flat surface.

Then, using a small dry bristled paint brush, I picked up the Mercury Twilight and dragged it back and forth across my nails.

I repeated that step with each nail, and followed with one coat of SV.

This was a fun and easy mani that went on very quickly.  I hope you all enjoy it!

Happy Painting!

Colors: Hits Zeus, Hits Ares, Layla Mercury Twilight


  1. Never seen Avengers and I generally stay away from the comic based movies, but I gotta tell you, I LOVE this mani!!! Great, great job!!

  2. Great movie and gorgeous nails! I will now keep trying to control my urge to slap the monitor with my shoe when that spider pic scrolls by. *shudder*

  3. This looks awesome!! I love the "web" look! :)

  4. I haven´t seen the movie, but I do love the mani! It looks great!

  5. Wow those spun nails using a holo are gorgeous!

  7. That's a good one. It looks cool :D

  8. That's ridiculously creative. Outside the box thinking. Hell yes.

    But that spider has to go.
