This is one for the record books folks. I attempted a nail art technique. As many of you know I'm a minimalist when it comes to doing my nails. I usually just do one color on my nails. I may layer a glitter shimmer over a color, or do an accent nail, but that is as far as I usually stretch it with my nails. The reason is I don't really have the patience or talent for nail art. When I started seeing cling/saran wrap manicures I thought I could do it. It didn't look too hard or challenging, and it didn't seem to leave much of a mess either. So here it goes!
I used Milani Black Swift as a base and let that dry completely. I followed that up with CND Effects Violet Shimmer immediately dabbing over it with cling wrap, and let that dry. Then I repeated that cycle using CND Effects Emerald Shimmer, Ice Blue Shimmer, and Copper Shimmer letting it dry between each color..and viola!
I love love love the look of this! It almost looks holographic doesn't it? I love the marbled look of these colors meshed together with the tiny bits of black peaking through. Very cool. This was easy to do as well. This is a good general tutorial on cling/saran wrap nails. The only difference is I used multiple colors rather than just one. The trick is you have to make sure each coat is dry before you do the cling wrap. It's an easy technique, but it does require some patience as far as time, but the result is great!
