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.

I've made new friends, improved on my nail and makeup techniques, tried new trends and products, discovered I love nail art (can you tell) and the list goes on. But most importantly I want to thank you all for your support and kind words that kept me going. Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass.
