Today’s Polish Days’ theme is Something New, meaning we should try a new polish, a new nail art or technique. I had two ideeas for this theme, the spun sugar technique and the ruffian. Still, I was more excited about trying to do spun sugar so the ruffian will have to wait a little while until I try it.
For the spun suger I used Color Club – Take me to your Chateau and Color Club Poptastic. I used the last one to add some color to a pastel manicure.
The base for the spun suger is the manicure I’ve shown to you a couple of days ago, done with Essence – Grey-t to be here and Color Club – Platinum Record. I love how the spun sugar turned out and I love the contrast between the glittery base (Platinum Record) and the creme polishes.
So, what did I think about this technique? It’s very effectfull but it’s time consuming! I had to wait for the polish to reach the right consistence and I got quite impatient during the process. Also, different polishes seem to have different spun proprieties so you’ll have to choose the ones that are good at spunning. Will I do it again? Yes, definitely, just not right now :D
