Nail Challenge Day 17: Sugar Spun New Technique

A new day, a new technique! The Sugar Spun technique is one I've seen, admired but never tried until now. It's quite easy to achieve and the colour combinations are endless; it's a perfect nail technique for your DIY'ers.


Get the Look:
1. Start off with your base coat and two coats of Kleancolor Sandstone. This is our light base color to ensure our green polishes pop off.


2. I'm using 4 colours for my gradient sugar spun design; Kleancolor Jazz Olive, Metallic Green, Mettalic Aqua and Retro Green (from cuticle to nail edge).
3. Place drops of each colour onto your painter's palette and allow them to dry a bit until they form clumps.
4. Using the lightest colour; Jazz Olive dip the nail dotter into the paint until it forms strings. Allow the strings to fall onto the nail bed around the cuticles area. Repeat until you are okay with the amount of colour applied. 
5. Move onto the next colour and repeat until you get your sugar spun onto half the nail bed. 
6. Repeat with the other two colours ensuring the darkest colour is at the nail edge. 
7. Optional: seal in with a top coat or just leave as is for a more 3D appearance.

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
