Teal Tuesday: Something Sweet

Hello my Lacquered Lovelies!

It took me a while to figure out what to do for this theme because in my mind teal and sweets just don't mesh. So I decided to try my hand at the spun sugar technique.


It actually looks pretty good IRL, but with the macro settings the pics look like a lumpy, bumpy mess.  I know that this kind of nail art is supposed to be textured, and that's what I like about it, but I could really do without the big globs.   Also, this method is very time consuming.  With the waiting for the polish to get stringy, it took about 10 minutes to do one nail.

Now on to the polishes.  For the base, I used 2 coats of Zoya Wednesday.  For the lines, I was going for a gradient look. I used (in order from the cuticle up) Zoya Zuza, Sally Hansen Insta Dry Blue Streak and Sinful Colors See You Soon.

Have you tried this technique before? 

Thanks for checkin' me out.  Happy Polishing!
