Drizzled! My first candy floss mani.

There have been all kinds of pictures floating about with the "candy floss" technique. It's an interesting thing, messy, yet in a way, elegant. So I thought I would give it a shot.

I didn't get many good pics of it...I don't know so much about my Zoya Purity for being the ideal white...It was very streaky, this pic masked that pretty well. Oh well!

Anyway, a quick review on this technique: It's not my favorite. First, I wasted so much black polish to do this so it would be the right consistency to "string". Probably like 10 drops was wasted. Nono, that's nothing compared to a water marble, I know. However, the outcome of a WM is much more to be desired! It took a good few drizzles to get it to lay right, also. If I had to rate this technique and look, it would be a 6.5/10. It has so much potential to be awesome! It's a bold and daring look, yet can be acceptable for even job interviews(with the right color choices, of course!) I will be doing this again in the future, but I don't know when, I already have an idea of my next drizzled mani, but I've a few other things I want to try!!

Also I got a little fed up with it after doing the accent nails. I did them first, just in case I didn't want to finish the rest of the nails. So glad I made that choice!

I like the contrast of black and white! Thanks for the review of this technique. Also, bummer about your bottle of Purity - I love mine!

Good thinking doing the accent nail first! That's what I do too just in case things don't pan out or I get too frustrated trying to one nail. I love the black and white together!

Love the mani! I haven´t tried this technique, yet, beacuse it just seems so messy, but I love the outcome.
