Sugar Spun - Triplet Nails

I can't believe it has been six months since the last instalment of Triplet Nails with Aimée and Madison! Where has the time gone?!  

For our Triplet Nails themes we tend to pick a technique we haven't tried before, first we had Saran Wrap, then we had Water Spotted, and this time we had a go at Sugar Spun nails. Here's my design...

I used all Barry M Nail Paints for this manicure; Cotton as a base, and Guava and Pomegranate for the Sugar Spun bits. I didn't add a top coat because you get a nice 3D/textured effect with this technique and I wanted to keep that. My lines are quite thin compared to most other Sugar Spun designs I have seen, I'm not sure why that is though!

I wish I had been brave enough to incorporate a gradient into mine too! The technique was actually easier than I expected it to be and I love how it looks so I'll definitely be giving these another go in the near future.

What do you think of our Sugar Spun Triplet Nails then? Have you done Sugar Spun nails before? If you have then leave me a link to your design as I'm looking for colour inspiration for my next go :)

    1. Try this one by The Nailasaurus -

      I did mine a bit differently because I wasn't keen on the mess around my nails, so I dragged the nail polish from the plastic/paper/whatever you decide to use and over my nail instead of putting the polish on my skin :)

  2. This is a fun technique and the final result is always eye catching and super interesting. Love all three manicures and color combinations!

    1. Thanks :) I like this technique so much more than I expected to :)
