Guest Post by SassyPaints2012

Hey everyone!
I'm home safely, bittersweet! I didn't want to leave!! But it is "home sweet home" as my little guys say. Here's my last guest post by the lovely Gini at Sassy Paints. Love a sugar spun, so glad she decided to make one for us :)

Hello Manicurator readers! I am extremely honored to have been asked by Victoria to do a guest post for her amazing readers while she enjoys her vacation. I have created a spun sugar mani for you all today and I hope you enjoy it! 

First I started off with 2 coats of China Glaze Fancy Pants. This purplish blue has a lovely pink shimmer that I was unfortunately able to capture.

Next I used China Glaze Beach Cruise-R, a fuchsia with a blue shimmer, to create my spun sugar. I really liked the way these colors went together.

Finally, I added a little bit of China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise, which looks more teal in person, for a little extra color!



I decided not to apply a top coat, I prefer this type of design to have the texture, but you could totally add a top coat to smooth it out if you prefer. I love spun sugar manis, I'm usually a perfectionist and this is one of those designs that doesn't have to be uniformed so I can just have fun with it! Creating the spun sugar is really easy, just a little time consuming and messy. There are a ton of great tutorials to learn how to create this design, I even think Victoria has one if you click on her Tutorial Tab at the top of the page!   
Thank you so much for having me today!

All the best, I'll be back with my own posts next week. xo
