The Digit-al Dozen DOES It All Again: Halloween!

In Digit-al Dozen, Nails by Jacki13 Comments

Hello, readers! It’s day 2 of the Digit-al Dozen September Spectacular! We are throwing-back to the last 12 nail art themes to celebrate the one year anniversary! Today’s theme is Halloween and it’s inspired by a few ideas by my friend, Ashley from Ashley is PolishAddicted! The main one was this “sunburst” tape+texture mani. I thought that I could alter the sunburst tape design into a spiderweb and I love how it turned out!


  • I painted my accent nails first with China Glaze Dandy Lyin’ Around, and topped with quick dry top coat to speed up the taping process.
  • Once that was dry, I taped with striping tape in the web design.
  • I then painted stripes of Zoya Beatrix and Dahliaand dabbed them over all of my nails to create a gradient look. (My tutorial HERE can show this more easily)
  • Then, I carefully pulled up the tape and cleaned up around the nail with acetone and a cleanup brush.



I really like how it turned out. I could have waited longer for the base color to dry, you can see in the macro that some of the white was pulled up. But all in all I think it worked out really well. What do you think?
Thanks for reading! Come back tomorrow to see the next throwback challenge theme!
