Flip/Flop February Day 7 - Sugar Spun / Pattern

This is my day 7 post for Jilltastic Nail Design's Flip/Flop February 28 Day Challenge.

I chose Sugar Spun Nails for today's mani. I have tried a few times, but today's mani is the first time I have tried doing it in a gradient. 

I used two different pink polishes in this to keep up with my own challenge to myself to use pink in every mani in this challenge.

I decided to do each nail slightly different. On my ring finger I decided to do an accent nail with hearts made using a toothpick. These were fun I have practiced these a few times but is way different on my silicone mat  than on my nails. 

All in all I think they turned our pretty good.

First I did a base color of Cool Coture by Maybelline-Express Finish  Which is a medium grey creme with micro glitter in a blueish color. It was a little tricky to apply it took 3 coats to get a coverage that I was happy with. 

I have the same trouble with all my Maybelline-Express Finish polishes.

Then to start my sugar spun nails I first used I Red A Good Book from Wet n Wild-Megalast. I struggled with sugar spun nails the first couple of times I tried it. 

Every polish is different as too how big of strings it will create how long it will take to get to the right consistency. 

From there I used Candy-licious also by Wet n Wild-Megalast. Last I used  Blushing Rose by Color Club to complete my sugar spun gradient mani with accent nail.

I hope you enjoy this mani!

Polishes used:
Base color: Cool Coture by Maybelline-Express Finish
