Spun Sugar Birthday Candles

23 Jan

It’s my birthday!!  Yahoo!!  Hubs is taking me out for a night on the town (so to speak.)  SpunSugar_birthdaycandles (10) WLcopyI know I did birthday candles last year, but nothing says birthday to me like birthday candles.

SpunSugar_birthdaycandles (12) WLcopyTo kick them up a notch this time, I did them spun sugar style. Doing the spun sugar technique vertically was more of a challenge than horizontally. The strings just didn’t want to stick to my nail as much.

SpunSugar_birthdaycandles (14) WLcopyI love the melted wax look that resulted. They look very abstract. Love ’em! I used Essie Power Clutch as my base. My candles were done with OPI Do You Lilac It, Zoya Robyn, Milani Pink Hottie, and Zoya Mitzi. My flames are Sinful Color Pull Over and Jordana Orangesicle. I finished this off with Chill Zone top coat.

    Happy birthday! My birthdays tomorrow and I’m in between doing balloon nails or candle nails. Or maybe both! Have a great b-day!
