New31DC: Day 20 - Texture

Hi there!  Here we are on the 20th day of the New31DC!  Today's challenge is to do some textured nails.  I decided to try out the Spun Sugar technique with my favorite color combination.

To start off I painted all of my nails with one coat of MASH Nail Art Polish in Black.  Next I made some puddles of my two colors on a piece of foil and let them thicken up.  I might have made my puddles too big because it seemed to take forever to thicken enough to make strings. The colors I used are China Glaze Def Defying, and Illamasqua Jo'Mina.  I did NOT add top coat when I was done, because I wanted to preserve the texture.

If you want to know how to do this, I would recommend watching this tutorial from XOXO Alexis Leigh.

Yum, candy nails!!


  1. Looks great, love the colours you've used :)

  2. lol I can only ever get strings when I DON'T want them! This is lovely.

  3. the colours look so pretty together :) I like it!

  4. awesome mani! i have yet to try this look but i plan on it in the near future!

  5. Oh it turned amazing!!! I love love love your color combo and the glaze stripes turned out so well!!! I tried it once but had horrible results. Now I might have to try it again because of you :-P
