Red, White & Blue Stringy Mani

Hello my lovely readers. I am keeping with my Memorial Day Weekend theme and went with a patriotic Red, White & Blue manicure. I tried out a technique that is new to me and I really don't know what it's properly called. I am going to refer to it as a stringy mani, but I have also seen it called the "sugar spun technique" and simply a "slim line" mani. I came across this tutorial video through another blog, though I cannot recall whose. Manicurator's April Showers Brings May Flowers - Rainbowl is probably my favorite stringy manicure.




Colors used:
   ● ZOYA Tosca
   ● ZOYA Robyn
   ● FINGER PAINTS Papier Mâché

This was no quick and easy mani. It took a long time and I will let you in on a little secret - my right hand looks nothing like my left! Don't you hate when that happens? It looks more like a splatter mani. However, now that I've done it I can perfect on it! I love the look of stringy manis and I plan on using this technique again.


Thanks for popping in!

  2. I'm so jealous at your first attempt! It looks awesome! String manis do look very neat. I tried one not too long ago and it was very bad... I'm definitely not a natural when it comes to art. :p And the right hand... that about covers it, lol.

    1. Thanks. You should try it again since you've learned the basic concept. It can only get better! Right hands be darned.

    1. Thank you, Victoria. Lol at calling it the "other" hand. When people ask to see my nails I always try to make sure I show them my good hand. ^_^
