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.
