Nail Art with Jior Couture: Spun Sugar

This post contains a press sample.

 Yesterday I showed you my Jior Couture Vét Olografik review but I did want to show off a couple more pictures. I just don't like having solid color nails so I did some nail art with my manicure as well.

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Tara shared a picture of Spun Sugar nails on my Facebook page and suggested I try out this technique. That's a technique I had never done before so I thought I'd give it a try, and I just new black would look awesome with this polish! I used LA Colors Circuit for the spun sugar. I matted the accent nail because I discovered top coat really makes it smear if you don't let it dry. Mike & I both liked this look so I just went with it for the accent. I did pretty thin spun "sugar" so there isn't a great deal of it, but I think it turned out pretty neat. I used NYC Matte Me Crazy on the accent.

I'm goofy, so I completely forgot I actually do have other black nail polish other than Circuit. Next time I'll probably use a different polish, as this was a bit difficult to work with.

This method was a lot of fun to do, but since you can't really clear it without messing it up too much (AKA you can - you just have to wait and I'm impatient) this didn't last me long. The next day it had pretty much all come off. So I decided to do more nail art, which I will show you tomorrow!!

In the meantime, go check out Jior Couture's beautiful polishes :)

Oops, almost forgot! I felt bad yesterday about not having a black light photo for you so I quickly swatched my thumb and tried it out in the black light. Yes, it certainly does glow under black light! I'd say this is one of my best glowing polishes.


  1. How do you do the spun sugar design? I love the look but don't know the technic of doing it. can you do a tutorial of it sometime? and post it to facebook or Pinterest?

    1. I will do that, hopefully sometime this week.
