Artsy Wednesday - Candy Themed Nails!

Hello lovelies! I was super excited for this Artsy Wednesday theme. . Candy nails!! YAY :D I love candy! So for my look today i actually used REAL candy :-P! It was quite tricky as you need very stable hands and lots of patience! This look almost did not last long. . I was so close to eating them lol!

I did my pinkie using the water marble technique. I used two colours by OPI - Pompeii Purple and Mod About You which gave it a great swirling effect to represent the strawberries and cream swirl lollies..YUM! I used OPI - Mod About You on all my fingers as the base. For the ring finger I applied sugar love hearts found in most supermarkets by applying then onto wet SV. I kept my middle finger plain, my index finger I did the same thing as the love hearts but these weird looking bullets are my FAVOURITE lollies ever! I wonder if anyone could guess what they are before I tell you? They are a European lollie by Haribo called Car En Sac which are amazing little sugar coated liquorice pellets! SOOOOO YUM! I could eat 10 kilos in one day! maybe. . don't challenge me on that! lol They are quite heavy but I was surprised they stuck onto my finger with the SV! And finally on my thumb I used real silver mini cachous! Edible silver balls! They are quite crunchy and hard but taste like sugar and looks so pretty! I hope you like my take on Candy Themed Nails! There are endless designs that could be done but I thought this was quirky! :D
