Geek Nail Challenge: Spiderman

It's week 2 of the challenge :D In the same category as my Batman nails (a couple of posts back), some Spiderman nails to celebrate the movie that came out recently (a while ago, I don't even think it's in cinemas anymore).

I'm not a Spiderman fan. He's alright but I'm not a fan of Marvel superheroes in general. I haven't really been exposed to the comics, movies, TV series etc. I just like doing Marvel nail art.

This is my right hand (I'm right-handed). It definitely turned out better on this hand. I made my mistakes on my left hand and learnt from them. The web on my thumb is crazy though!! I think I could've done it a bit better in neatness. The positioning of Spiderman's eyes (I'm a perfectionist), better webs. Thankfully I still like it.

Mistakes and I messed up. Not too badly though. The main problems with the webs being too straight, not in a nice curve and upside down. I didn't even realise -_- I did too much blue on the tips of the nails. The Spiderman face was probably the easiest web to draw. The lines were there to guide me to a perfect web. Also I was meant to put the face on my 4th finger on my right hand but without thinking I painted the tip of my 4th nail blue. I just rolled with it.
Red: OPI - Dutch Tulips
Blue: Barry M - Blueberry Ice Cream
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black (no name)
Silver: Professional Nail Art - Silver (no name)

My lighting makes this look bright, but it's actually quite dull, that's what black lines do to red :P

Check out everyone else doing the challenge :)
