I used to No Lift Nails Pro Kit for the acrylic system with Terrific Tips Classic Oval Nail Tips for nail extension tips. I filed the tips into points before applying them. Once the manicure was cured and filed to exactness, they were ready to be painted. I used three coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather and on top use LA Splash Cosmetic Glitter Splash in Rockstar from their Halloween 2011 collection. Seche Vite sealed the entire look.
For the base color, I painted two coats China Glaze White On White. The base marble used China Glaze White On White and China Glaze Liquid Leather. The top marble used China Glaze Papaya Punch, China Glaze Liquid Leather and Piggy Polish Nocture-nail. The entire manicure was coated with one coat Seche Vite.

I painted three coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather I used a coat of Essie Matte About You to matte the look. Once completely dry, I taped off the top lid of the eye and painted one coat (and then magnetized) both Layla Magneffects in Blue Grey Flow 03 and Golden Bronze 09. Around the outside of the blue eye I painted a rim of Zoya Jo and around the rim of the golden eye I painted a rim that was a mix of equal parts OPI Golden Rules and China Glaze Cyperspace. I added the iris with China Glaze Liquid Leather and atop the eyes I glossed them with Seche Vite
I had to so some layering to make this color scheme possible and so I first painted two coats of China Glaze Peachy Keen for a good opaque base and then painted two coats of China Glaze Sun Worshiper on top, but still had a few spots I wasn't happy with, so an addition of one coat China Glaze White Cap brought everything together. I used Special Konad Polish in Black with Bundle Monster plate BM13 and Konad image disk m28. For the line dangling the spider, I free handed the line with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Midnight in NY. Finally I used one coat of Seche Vite to seal the look and finish the manicure.

Magneffects is made in Italy, but there are online retailers that sell the products. I purchased mine from Brigette's Boutique and had a great experience. They are located in Wisconsin, which is close to me. I ordered on a Wednesday night and received my polishes via first class mail by Friday. So fast! Be warned, that the polish is $15.50, which is a on the high end for polish price points. But I'd keep in mind for nail art, it's comparable. Think about it--you need two bottles of nail polish for crackle, so $15.50 might be worth it!
