4th of July Sugar Spun Nail Art

Happy 4th of July! Today I have a quick nail art post for you! I've been wearing my 4th of July mani since Monday...I'm all patriotic up here this week haha! This year I decided to try a technique that has been around for a while but I had never tried...Sugar Spun nails. I don't know why but I always thought this technique was really hard or something, spoiler alert: it's easy.  I linked the tutorial I followed on Youtube below, there are tons and tons of tutorials for this out there to follow!

I used Finger Paints Paper Mache as my base and Jin Soon Cool Blue and Alessandro Red Carpet for the sugar spun parts. There was a little bit of a learning curve with this but it was easy to get the hang of and I really like the result. I did not top coat this, it does have texture which may not be something everyone likes but I loved it!

Here is the tutorial I used made by All Lacquered Up, if the embedded video below doesn't work the following link should! http://youtu.be/zkCzju_1S2c
