Black Widow on your nails!
Sometimes I get inspired by weird things :D I really hate spiders but in a way black widows are beautiful - so I created this nail art.
You can use any color combination you like but for this tutorial I stuck to the typical red & black :)

    3. Take the black polish and a thin nail art brush and paint 2 lines along the middle stripe. Now these 2 have to be as straight as possible. Maybe you can use some tape if you don't think you can do it freehand.
