Kat Stays Polished | Beauty Blog with a Dash of Life: Spun Sugar Nails with Holos!

Spun Sugar Nails with Holos!

Monday, February 11, 2013

Okay, so, if you haven't seen my original spun sugar mani tutorial, what are you waiting for?! It will help you perfect your technique so that you can do the same with holographic polishes.

If you're familiar with holographic polish, you know that it has a different consistency than regular polish. Some holographics have a gloppy consistency and that can make it difficult to use for spun sugar nails.

The pictures below will show you what you need to look for when drying out your polish to use for the spun sugar.

Holos used:

  • Color Club Halo Hues Kismet (pinky)
  • Color Club Halo Hues Eternal Beauty (ring)
  • Color Club Halo Hues Miss Bliss (middle)
  • Color Club Halo Hues Over the Moon (pointer)
  • Color Club Halo Hues Harp On It (thumb)

These two images are at the midpoint stage to where you can begin "spinning." The thread does not stretch high enough so you won't necessarily get the long, thin strands you need for this look.

Here you are ready to go. Even though the image on the left shows it a bit thick, when you stretch it higher, it gets thinner. You'll have to work rather quickly because strands can begin to break.

With practice, I'm sure you'll be able to achieve this look with any polish you desire.

Thanks for stopping by! Good luck with your tries! Be sure to post them to my Facebook! I'd love to see them!

For quick reference, here is my original tutorial.
