They Call It A Fail

... but I think despite the fact that the mani I'm about to show didn't turn out as supposed, I should show it to you, ladies.

And why? Well, because failing is the first step to success and because I think it turned out cute nonetheless ;)

Mind you, not cute enough for me to actually wear it - I  ended up making another manicure for today (you'll want to stay tuned ;)) - but cute still :)

Have you ever heard about the spun sugar mani? It's gorgeous and I've seen some really awesome ones.
However, I just couldn't seem to master it somehow!
So, interpret this also as an SOS for all of you out there, who have attempted this technique and succeeded - tips and tricks are very welcome :D

Without more blabbering, here we go:














See what I mean by fail? I mean the colours are great and all, but that is not a spun sugar mani - AT ALL! ;)
*sighs*
But I'll try it again... someday ;)










I ended up with some really big blobs of polish instead of the thin strips on the nails I was supposed to achieve :(
Help please! <3



I guess you now understand why I had to take this off after the photos - I couldn't even see a way to topcoat these blobs! ;)

So, check out the blog later for today's 'real' manicure and also don't forget to let me know in the comments of any tips you might consider useful on this technique :D


Hugs & Kissies,

  1. I have the same problem with this technique. :( When I first saw the picture, though, I thought the design was done on purpose. Very cute! :D

  3. Maybe it's not a sugar spun mani, but I actually really like this! It's kind something between splatter and sugar spun. And the colors are stunning <3

  5. This is a hilarious post! I agree with Paulina, definitely a cross between sugar spun and splatter. I think it's lovely :)

  10. I also thought this design was deliberately done this way. I like the modern art flare it has, as if it should be hanging on a wall somewhere.

  11. It could not be a spun sugar, but I so damn like it anyway! *_*
    At first sight I thought it to be some sort of watercolour <3
    I've never tried this technique, I'm not a huge fan of 3D nails (except from textured polishes), but I've seen some nice manis around the net and I hope you'll succeed :)

    1. Awwww... thank you so much! That's so nice of you to say. I have yet to try watercolour too ;)
      And I confess I have to be in the right mood for 3D nails, but when I am, boy, do I love it! :D

  12. I may be crazy but this is one of my favorite manicures. I love the crispness of the white background with the vibrant polishes. I like that there is a lot of the white left to see, something I've not seen in other spun sugar manis. Gives it a fresher look. I absolutely agree with Nail*ine It about it being very modern art-y. I think the drops/blobs, for the most part, balance out the strings of polish, gives them more interest. lol, I am going to attempt to do this mani! Maybe it could catch on, name it after you!

    1. Awww, thank you so much for your amazing comment, LaraLeaf!! I think it was a fail in the sense that this is not what a sugar spun mani is supposed to look like - you just made me feel so much better about these! So, thank you - and do share it with me if you happen to do something similar ;)
