Sugar Spun Nails – #31DC2014 Day 7 Black & White

7 Sep

Good evening everyone!  I hope you are all having a fantastic Sunday.  I am back this evening to share day 7 of the 31 day challenge.  I had many ideas of things I wanted to do for the Black and White challenge but after much debate, I decided on doing something completely new to me.  Most of us have seen the sugar spun nails and I felt black and white would be a great combo to try this out with.

I started off painting my nails a base white using my OPI Alpine Snow.  Once that was well dried I used a mixture of Elmer’s Glue and water to paint the skin around my nails, this will help with clean up.  Next I poured some old Sinful Colors Black on Black onto some aluminum foil and started stirring.  This takes some time to thicken properly and clearly I got a little impatient, this is why I have bigger clumps.  I used my fine point dotting tool to apply the stringy paint.  When I was finished with one hand I peeled the glue off and used a cleaning brush for the few little spots that didn’t hit the glue.  I helped the drying process by using Julep Ta Da! Quick Dry Drops and then waited.  I did my other hand much later so I could give as much drying time as possible.

So what do you think of my Black and White nails?  Have you tried out sugar spun nails?  The process was time consuming but the look I really liked so I would certainly do again.  Thank you so much for stopping by today and be sure to scroll down to enter the current giveaway. <3
