8 Spooky Nights 
Glitter Me This  

Living in Arizona, the first thing I think of when I think spiders is black widows. They are our most em-famous, I grew up hunting them!


I used Zoya Elisa, 365 Days of Color Black Flame Candle for my bases and OPI Alpine Snow; along with my Black Stripe Rite for the finer details.I contemplated adding eyes to the spiders on my pointer finger, but thought it may make it too cartoon-y. I couldn't put eyes on my ring finger spiders, because the hourglass dot is on her belly, so that would be her underside!


The sugar spun web on my middle finger is my interpretation of a black widow web. They dont make standard, pretty spun webs. They like dark holes and tight spaces like those of a wood pile. The black widow likes to hang out at the back of that tight space with a whole mess of web, spun in every direction, between her and the unsuspecting victim.

Another fun fact, after mating the female black widow kills the puny little male. Happy Halloween! Haha!

  3. These are so awesome!!! I love the webbing! We have Black Widows and Brown Recluses where I live...plus these giant tarantulas! I saw my first of those over the summer - so huge and terrifying! Luckily I don't think they come inside houses often, the one I saw was outside.
