Syrup Nails

Syrup nails. Or in my case more like stripey nails. :D I stumbled upon this photo and had to try it. Of course.


I used Color Club Yummy! and Orly Rio Nights.

And this is what I've created:

I'm not completely satisfied with the outcome but it's my first time. I'll let it slide. ;)

Thanks for looking!


  1. Here's a better instruction than the one you saw:

    You can avoid the stripy effect but create a smoother gradation by painting over the entire nail with the light color right after you paint the darker color layer, in each step of the gradation. When you're all done your nail should look syrupy (and really thick with all the layers), not stripy. Hope this helps!

    Hi Nihrida, i just saw your nail art on flickr, i love the effect. Thanks for sharing, i'll give it a try.

  4. I love this manicure! Very pretty and I like the stripes. It's very different looking. I think you found a new style and should find a name for it.
