Spun Sugar Technique

Llama Nails Techinque Challenge


Hello Loves!!

Happy Hump Day!!!!  Today's Llama Nails Technique Challenge...Spun Sugar.

Honestly, I did not like this technique at all :)  Apparently you need a whole lot of patience, of which I do not have LOL!  However, I do have to say it is a very interesting technique, if it works out right, the design and texture is pretty cool :)

To get this look, I started with a base of Sinful Colors Purple Diamond.  I love that color, it is a very pretty, shimmery pale purple. While my base was drying, I put a glop of Pure Ice New Lilac, Sinful Colors Let's Talk and LA Colors Purple on a piece of paper so they too could dry.  The point of this technique is to allow the polish to dry enough so that when you use a dotter, toothpick, etc., it will leave a string of polish that you then apply to the nails...and that's where my patience ran thin.  This is not a quick design, not always did  the polish leave behind a "thin" string, as you can see in the pictures. You must also work quickly as you don't want the polish to dry out so much that you can no longer "string it along" :)

I do think that with a little more patience and practice I could nail this technique.  Will have to try again down the road :)

So what did you think?  Do you have the patience for the Spun Sugar?
