Yesterday I promised you some nail art using by brand new Sally Hansen Sugar Coats and that’s what I have for you today! A simple but pretty dotted gradient.
Ta-daaa! Textured polishes are perfect for all sorts of nail art! I started off with 3 coats of Tip Top Nail Chic – Cream Puff and then used 3 different sized dotting tools to apply first Razzleberry and then Sour Apple from the Sally Hansen Sugar Coats. This is super simple nail art but I really like it on my nails!
I quite liked this colour combination as well, but on my right hand I switched up the colours. I started with 2 coats of Tip Tip Nail Addict Baby Cheeks and then dotted using Cherry Drop and Bubble Plum.
This wasn’t my first idea for some nail art with these. Firstly, I thought I’d create a girly gradient using Cherry Drop, Cotton Candies, and Sugar Fix, and then stamp some heart images over it. Well, the gradient part went fine:
But when it came to the stamping, I just couldn’t get it to work. Now, I do mostly blame myself for that, because I know I’m not great at stamping – but even when I tried using a small heart rather than a full nail image, I could barely get any of the stamp to transfer. It worked on the plain base coat I had on my right hand, so I think the texture or formula of the sugar coat had something to do with it (I’ve stamped over a liquid sand with some success before). Luckily, the gradient alone is really pretty!
