SassyNails Nail-Aween Nail Art Challenge: Day 7 - Spiders

       Well, if you have been reading my blog for the last month you will know that I started out this month by doing two Halloween challenges.  This one, which is a self paced one, and another one for the Facebook group, Crumpet's Nail Tarts.  I can't express how crazy it has been to be doing nail art every single day.  It is hard to get everything done.  Much respect to those who can do it.  I decided yesterday that I am not going to finish the one for Crumpet's Nail Tarts.  The main reason is because the next challenge I had to do was inspired by a scary movie.  I DO NOT watch scary movies and I don't really want to spend 3 hours doing intense nail art and then take it right back off.  Blood, guts, and creepy movies are not my thing.  
     On to today's mani, spiders.  I really don't like spiders, but this mani turned out pretty cute.  I received some Sally Girl mini polishes in a swap last week and they were perfect for this one.  As with most neons, I layered Amped over a white base to make the neon color really pop.  Unfortunately this resulted in easy chipping.  I didn't even do anything except sweep and mop last night and it was chipped.  :-(  I applied the spider webs and legs of the spiders with a small nail art brush and the bodies of the spiders with a dotting tool.  I hope you like these.
