Spider Gels

by - August 12, 2019

I have had a lot of time recently to focus on my creativity and really try and master some new skills.
I have loved doing nail art for years, however I have more recently swapped out my regular nail polishes for gel nail polish. Very rapidly I have built up a whole collection of nail supplies as I have very much enjoyed teaching myself an art and exploring new techniques.

Above I have 3 designs: Flowers and then a northern lights design.
I am planning on doing a whole northern light range inspired by the lights I see when I visit my family in the Orkney Islands.
All of the designs above are hand painted, no water decals. We have a butterfly, cherry blossom and a swirly design.

Above is a whole range I have done using spider gels as the main technique, if you are new to gel nail art; spider gel is a thicker, stretchy gel which you can stretch to drape over the nails is a wide range of techniques to create shapes, lines, swirls and various designs.

Spider gels have become a staple in my nail art kit, being so versatile and so effective in such a short time.

Do you like my new designs? Which is your favourite?
