Sugar Spun Nails

Hey everyone!

For today, I decided to try out a popular technique that I've been wanting to do for ages: sugar spun nails! These were actually pretty easy to do and I love the effect that comes out from these.

For this design, I painted two coats of Sinful Colors Big Daddy. On a scrap piece of paper, I placed a few drops of Sinful Colors Endless Blue on it. 

With a dotting tool (or toothpick), I swirled the polish around to thicken it up. I also blew on it a little to speed up the drying time. 

Once the polish thickens, the polish will turn stringy and you can start placing it on the nail. I did a back and forth motion for all the nails. I did this until I thought there were enough strings on the nail. You can make the strings as thick or thin as you want, but I did a combination of both.

For the accent nail, I added Wet n Wild's French White Creme on top of Endless Blue.

I think the one thing that I like about these nails is the texture. It feels really nice and it's an easy way to get a textured design without texture polishes. I almost tried it with a texture polish, but I wasn't sure how that would come out. If you all would like to see how that goes, let me know and I can try it out for you!

    1. I can try it out for you in a post for next week ^^. My only concern is the polish drying up before you can get the strings onto the nail. I hope it works though.
