Flip Flop Challenge: Sugar Spun/Pattern

Sunday 10 February 2013

I chose the sugar spun design as I love it! I did it for the first time in the 31 Day Challenge in January See Here, in fact I think that one/those two were a bit better than this attempt... But then I am using my left hand instead of the right and it is only my second try at it ;) On the subject of STILL using my left hand, the broken nail is still nubby, I cut all the others down when I hurt that one and they have come on a treat but the middle finger is still going at a snails pace - typical! Back to this mani, I decided to try Valentine's colours - red and pink... I did three coats of the pink shimmer for the base and then used a deep red for the sugar spinning part <3 I love this pink, it's only Boots own brand but it's sooo dainty! Only a couple more mani's to go before I'm caught up now :)


For this look I used:
  • Boots Natural Collection - Shimmer Pink
  • Avon Nailwear Pro - Red Reveal
  • Small Dotting Tool

  1. Lovely! I'm regretting not trying sugar spun now lol

    I have the same nail problem as you! I'm using my left hand for pictures because my right middle nail broke on Friday. I'm gutted. Commiserations!

    1. Thank you! It's definitely worth doing - it's pretty quick and easy for such a good effect :)

      Annoying isn't it!!! Right in the middle of a challenge too grrr! I feel your pain!

  2. Pretty! really like this effect!
