Nail-Art-A-Go-Go - Day 14 - Sweets

 Hi guys, and welcome to Day 14 of the NAGG.  I can't believe we're at the halfway point already!  Today's prompt is sweets, and I decided to attempt a mani based on Blueberry Sour Candy Belts.  It;s not exactly perfect, but I think it came out OK.

This was the picture I took my inspiration from, and as you can see, the polish colours I had were a little bit too light, but I think if the colours were right, this would have looked very much like the sweets themselves.  Maybe my mani could be a new type of candy belt - blueberries and cream ;) Mmmmmmm.........
I started out with a base of Sinful Colors - Cinderella, a lovely pale blue full of glass fleck shimmer.  Then I painted 2 stripes on each nail with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Brisk Blue, and gave it some time to dry.  Then I added 2 more coats of Cinderella, to blend the stripes together a bit, and 1 coat of La Femme - Fairy Dust to look like sugar.  Then when it was all dry, I added a matte top coat to finish.  It didn't really resemble the sweets very much when glossy, so I only have matte pictures today.
 Overall, I was quite pleased with this mani, it looks pretty much how I imagined it would.
I am really looking forward to the next 2 weeks mani's though - the prompts are getting even harder, and I have painted all but 3 of them now.  There are a few that I am really looking forward to posting, some designs I have been meaning to do for ages but never gotten around to, and, as always, a few that looked a bit better in my head :D
What do you guys think of this mani then?  Also, what are your favourite sweets?  I am partial to literally anything with chocolate or peanuts :D
