Good afternoon polished ones! It's such a lovely day today, I have spent my day at work looking out the window wanting to be in the sun!
The start of a new month means a new Tri Polish Challenge theme. This month is pink, yellow and blue. I'm not sure if I will be able to participate in Tri Polish much this month as I'm hoping to join in on an autism awareness challenge I have seen floating around on facebook.. but I shall try my best. I fancied trying a new technique for this manicure, so I went with spun sugar nails :).
To see my manicure read on below.
I'm not sure who originally came up with this technique, but I know a lot of people were doing it a while back. Yes, I am a bit late to the party with these :P.
I started by painting all my nails with W7 - Black.
I created the spun sugar effect by leaving a blob of each polish to dry a bit and mixing it with a toothpick so I could stretch out strings of it. I stretched strings of each colour over my nails.
The colours I used are Barielle - Surfs Up, Nicole by OPI - Hit The Lights and Leighton Denny - Plush Pink. I skipped topcoat on this manicure.
So my spun sugar effect came out a tad messy... but I still quite like the effect. It reminds me of paint splatters. I loved the texture of them, I spent the day rubbing my nails when I was wearing these. I did struggle getting the paint all the way round my nail as they are quite curved. I reckon I will try this again though.
Have you tried this technique? Does anyone have any tips on making it neater? Let me know in the comments.
Thanks for looking.
