Spun Sugar Nails

I have really been loving the new Spun Sugar Nail trend.  It's really pretty and surprisingly easy.  I used THIS TUTORIAL  from XOXO Alexis Leigh.  It did take me a little time to get the polish just right for it to get stringy but once I did it went pretty smoothly....and messy too lol.  It's not the neatest nail art to do...especially if you use the type polishes I did.  I used the foil type polishes and they have super tiny pieces of glitter and well, clean up is just a mess.  That stuff is hard as hell to get off your fingers.

I used Orly Sweet Peacock (my favorite polish in the whole wide world) and an un named LA Colors Silver foil.


I will definitely be trying this again with creme's.  I love this effect.  What do you think of the new sugar spun trend?

  3. it looks amazing, but the thought of all that cleanup makes me cringe mightily. i barely have enough patience for regular manicure cleanup; i'd probably get two fingers into a sugar spun mani before i flipped my table over yelling "I'M OUT."

    yours turned out beautifully, though! great work.
