Spun pink sugar baby!

Oh yes! I am loving this look. This is my entry for the Pre-Spring Challenge Contest. I’m still catching up! The theme of day 2 is pink and I decided to try a new-to-me technique with this manicure. I. LOVE. IT!

I first saw this “Spun Sugar” look done by Top Coat It
and used it as my inspiration.

To get my look I used:

Jocarste – white (56)
Caronia – Crystal
Oh My Golly (OMG) – First date (light pink)
Caronia – Baby pink (medium pink)
OMG – Bikini (dark pink)

I am not a fan of white by itself so added one coat of Crystal to soften it a bit but next time I do this I will skip that step because the white is really the background and with the spun sugar look I hardly notice the mild sparkle of crystal anyway.

There are several tutorials out there and although it can take a while to do, it is worth it. I started with the lightest colors and moved to darker and I didn’t really like it until I added the final color and I was hooked! Even my husband has mentioned several times how cool it looks.

I used a dotting tool to achieve this awesome textured look and it some serious elbow grease for cleanup. Ladies, when someone suggests using Vaseline to help keep mess to a minimum baby oil is NOT a substitute. Oh well, lesson learned.

I hope y’all love this as much as I do. Please leave a comment and subscribe so I know you are out there watching. 🙂
