"I chose to do spider web nails because I think they are very popular with the whole Halloween theme," Heavner told "GMA." "I wanted to change it up a bit with the neon coloring instead of the common black and orange colors that traditionally go with Halloween.This is one is a hip and an up-to-date spider web."

Get the look:

Step 1: Buff the surface of the nails and apply two layers of 1-step gel black gel polish. Cure each layer under the UV/LED lamp for 1 minute.

Pro Tip: "Remember there is no tacky layer to the one-step gel polish," advises Heavner. "One-step gel polish is quick and it keeps the nails nice, thin and natural looking without adding bulk. Normal gel polishes take more time to apply and can look bulky if not applied thinly because of the additional layers of the base, two layers of color and the top coat."

Step 2: Apply white spider gel and stretch it with a liner brush or a needle tool to create a web. Once each web is done, cure it for one minute.

Step 3: Use a sponge applicator to apply neon pigments on top of each nail web. Brush off any excess powder.

Step 4: Apply a no-wipe top coat to seal in pigments, and cure each nail for one minute.
