Sugarspun nails

Hi everyone! Today I’m showing you a new-to-me technique: sugarspun nails. I followed this tutorial on The Nailasaurus and this is what I came up with:

I’m really sorry for the bad lighting on these pictures. The sun wouldn’t come out and I ended up taking the photos in the evening with a lamp which clearly isn’t good enough.

My ring finger looked a little blobby, but other than that, I thought my nails looked just like minty chocolates! Which seems about right, since the polishes I used here were NYX Matte Mint and NYX Matte Chocolate. On my middle and ring fingers, I started off with the Matte Chocolate and then did the sugarspun part over it in Matte Mint. My thumb, index finger and pinkie were done the other way around.

What do you think of this look? Have you tried sugarspun nails before?
