Polkagris Nails (Candy Rock Nails)

Polkagris (internationally sometimes called candy rock) is a Swedish candy invented in the Swedish town of Gränna in 1859. It's a hard type of candy and it taste peppermint. Polka is a traditional dance and the rumor has it that people used to call candy for gris in those days.

In Sweden polkagrisar is often associated with Christmas, so for this Nail Art Sunday I give you - polkagris nails!

The base is MAC Obey Me and then I've used striping tape to create the lines while adding Barry M Matte White. After the tape was removed I added a top coat.

I'm pleased with the result actually! This type of nail art look good at short nails and they look so real I want to eat them ;)


How do you like my polkagris nails?

  2. Hi sweetie, I sure do like your Candy nails!!! Beautiful and I agree this is a perfect nailart for shorter nails. I am a bit embarrassed to admit, but I never was into candies, even as a kid (blushing). I wish you a wonderful Sunday, viele Küsschen xxx

    1. I can just say: very yummy! :-) Or, I can just stay and look at them and want to take some candy! :-)

  7. På fråga 1: Hur snygga och läckra som helst, i ordets dubbla bemärkelse.
    På fråga 2: Oh ja!
    På fråga 3: Polkabräck... eller vänta nu, du kanske inte frågade vad som var mitt favoritjulgodis med polkagrisar? LOL

  8. Omg så himla söta :) ser fullt ätbara ut ;) xoxo

  9. Så sött och roligt! Jag tycker väldigt mycket om polkagrisar, särskilt i choklad...

  10. Härliga, har en egen tanke om polkagrisnaglar. Se om jag hinner med att utföra den inom de närmsta dagarna.
    Jag gillar polkagrisar men inte just den varianten du visar på bilden. Jag gillar de som är lite mattare i finishen och inte helt igenom hårda utan lite, lite sega istället.
