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.

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
