Sugar Strand Mani

Since Jacki at Adventures In Acetone did her version of the sugar strand mani I couldn't wait to try it.

You need a fair bit of spare time for this one, and it is quite messy.
I started out with ELF nude as a base. On a plastic pocket I pooled some polish, I did two colours at a time. You need to let the polish get a bit tacky, so that when you dip a dotter in and lift it creates the strands which you then lay over the nail. I used ELF Mint Cream, Collection 2000 Hot Looks Parma Violet and Siren and NYC Lemon Cream and Orange.

I enjoyed doing this, it reminds me of being a child and splatting paint off a paintbrush.
