Hey there! For day 3 of The Digit-al Dozen's New & Improved week, I thought I came up with the cleverest idea. I knew I wanted to try the sugar spun technique and thought it'd be cute on chocolate dipped strawberries. Then I googled and found that I certainly wasn't the first one but I went for it anyway. Sugar spun is a brand new technique for me so it definitely fits with the theme of New & Improved.
To do these I started with two coats of Essie Jelly Apple. Then I painted on the leaves with Sally Hansen Lickety-Split Lime and outlined them and added the seeds with acrylic paint.
Then I used Essie Partner In Crime in a glass of water (like the start of a water marble) and dragged out the edges a bit. I dipped my nails in there to get the chocolate dipped look.
Lastly I did the sugar spun part of the mani using Essie Marshmallow. I should have topcoated them before adding the sugar spun look to have them shinier and smoothed out but I forgot that I wouldn't be top coating at the end. Oops!
That's all for today. I hope you're enjoying New & Improved week so far. Check out what everyone else has done for the midpoint of the week in their links below.
