Sugar spun nail art...with a twist!

Hi everyone! I'm sure most of you have heard of the sugar spun nail art technique by now and recently, I saw a great alternative to it on Pinterest. Armed with my fan brush and nail polishes, I went to town :D I started off with two coats of Eclipse #706. Once that was dried, I used my fan brush and BYS Colour Change Bright pink and I believe Misa Office polish-tics (sorry, mind blanked and can't be 100% sure!) to give the 'sugar spun' look.

Whilst mine didn't turn out looking as great as the one from Pinterest, I think this was a good first attempt. Because of the constant need to clean the fan brush in between applications though, I'll probably save this for an accent nail look in the future. What do you think, will be you be trying this nail art technique out? Which one do you prefer?

Thanks for reading!

  3. I like this! The other spun sugar looks I've seen have been more textured and I am not a fan of that. I like this better!

  9. It definitely takes some patience, especially with the brush cleaning in between nails :P I'll be doing this again but only as an accent!
