31 Day Challenge - Day 17: A New Technique

       Wow, what a crazy week.  Work has been insane.  I am pretty sure I have worked a minimum of 130 hours in the last two weeks.  This is why I haven't been posting.  I was so distraught about this mani.  I really wanted to try the water spotted mani or a fan brush mani.  I was unable to do either of these due to the fact that I didn't own a fan brush and I didn't want to spend so much time doing the spotted mani.  I have seen a few videos on how to do some sugar spun manicures and wasn't really too keen on doing it, but I was sitting here watching tv and I figured what could it hurt to try it out.  I used a quick drying white and was really pleased with how easy it was to do this.  I finally got the hang of this once I hit the pointer finger.  You will be able to tell in the pictures.  The blobs of polish are where I touched the dotting tool to the nail accidentally.

Base coat: Pro FX Fiberized Ridge Filler
Base color: Winter Wonder from Sinful Colors - 2 coats
White: White on the Spot from Milani
Top coat: Seche Vite

I am including these next two pictures so that you can see more of the shimmer in this beautiful polish.  I will need to wear Winter Wonder when I have more sun.


  1. How did you do it? What is the technique called so I can search Youtube?

    1. These are called sugar spun nails. There are tons videos on YouTube that will explain it way better than I can! Thanks for stopping by.
