CYNA Candy challenge, Day 4-3D candy nails

Good evening everyone!  I’m a day late with this one, but I was unfortunately a bit too busy yesterday to do the 3D candy nails I wanted to do (Candy Crush nails made with rhinestones).  Instead, I took a page out of Monica Sengupta’s book and tried sugar spun nails.  She does them really well, and has done them twice for this challenge (here and here).  I love hers, but trying to do them myself was a huge pain in the butt!

But, I tried anyway.  I wanted mine to look like a variety of chocolate truffles, so I used Zoya Louise, OPI Ice-bergers and Fries, FingerPaints Paper Mache, and Essie Limo-scene as my polishes.

They don’t look as good as Monica’s, but they’re not bad at all for a first attempt.  Of course, they would have looked better if I hadn’t smashed two of them right before I took the photos. 😛  You can also tell where I got a bit frustrated at times and actually touched the dotting tool I was using onto the nail.  I kind of like the clumpy parts though, since you see that on drizzled chocolate truffles a lot.  All in all, I do like this mani.

I’m going to have to try my hand at this again some time though, because it is a really cool effect even if this attempt was a bit annoying.
