Time for the second installment of this month's TPC! The rules are simple - to create 4 manicures, using three polishes, representing three pre-determined colours. If you would like to join in (and I thoroughly recommend it!), you can do so HERE. Here is a reminder of the polishes I'm using this month:

Today I decided to try a technique I hadn't tried before! I'm always a bit scared, in case it totally fails, but I usually have excellent beginner's luck (it's when I try to recreate it that things go wrong!), so I went for it.
Sugar spun nails look amazing, but I always look at them and think that they look like a lot of mess, a lot of cleanup, and generally a lot of hassle! Plus they take ages to do. But it was my day off, and I was watching movies, so I didn't notice the time too much.
They aren't perfect - I did touch the dotting tool on my nails a couple of times, but once I got the hang of it, they weren't too hard to do, and overall I'm very happy with them! I don't think they would last too long without bits chipping off, but I had to take them off for work anyway. I'll definitely be trying these again - I saw someone do them in brown, so they looked like chocolates, and I really want to try that! Cleanup was a bit of a pain, but no worse than I was already prepared for!
Be sure to check out everyone else's nails, and the TPC will be back on Tueday!
