Nail Art Tutorial: Sugar Spun Nails

Mix a little sweetness into your mani! Try these thin “sugar spun” lines by Kat Stays Polished. Check out the process.

  • Step 1:

     Paint your nails with 2 coats of your favorite nail polish color.

    SLIDE 1 OF 9
  • Step 2:

    Drop a complementing color of polish onto your polish palette or a plastic sandwich bag.

    SLIDE 2 OF 9
  • Step 3:

    Using a dotting tool, gently spin the polish to dry it out. You may blow on it while you spin to help quicken the process.

    SLIDE 3 OF 9
  • Step 4:

    Take the dotting tool and gently lift it off the palette. If it looks stringy and stays intact, you are now ready to start adding these strings to your nails.

    *Quick tip: apply a thin layer of cuticle oil to the siides of your fingers to make for an easy cleanup at the end.

    SLIDE 4 OF 9
  • Step 5:

    Gently lift the polish from the palette to create a thin string of polish. Make sure it's long enough to cover the width of your nail. Gently lay the string over your nail and repeat as many times as you'd like.

    SLIDE 5 OF 9
  • Step 6:

    Repeat Step 5 for the second color.

    SLIDE 6 OF 9
  • Step 7:

    Repeat Step 5 for the third color.

    SLIDE 7 OF 9
  • Step 8:

    Using a small brush or cotton swab, clean up the excess polish strings from your fingers.
