Sorry for the brief hiatus – Danielle came back from vacation & we both started new jobs PLUS we have a very exciting project in the works for PYP, so we’ve been extra busy! We’ve missed you guys! We’ve been seeing the saran wrap nails floating around the internet, our favourites/the original by Leeanne Colley & we decided to give them a go. Our local Winners always has random nail polish brands, we recently found a 6 piece mini bottle metallic set by Kleancolor (for $5!), so we went for a metallic saran wrap look.
Step 1: After applying a base coat, paint nails 2 coats of Essie – No Place Like Chrome. The Mirror Metallic collection is now out, see our full collection review here.
Step 2: Rip off a small piece of saran wrap and crunch into a ball. Drab a little pool of your first shade, Kleancolour – Metallic Aqua on a scrap piece of paper and dip saran wrap ball into it. We found it best to do the first couple applications on the scrap piece of paper, so the polish isn’t too heavy on the nails. This way it leaves a lot more room for other shades.
Step 4: Repeat Step 2/3 with your final shade Kleancolor – Metallic Orange & Metallic Black (or keep going!). Don’t forget to seal in your design with a great top coat – we recommend Seche Vite.
We can not get enough of metallics lately – have you picked up any we should try? This design sort of reminds us of splatter nails (see here) without such a mess, so you should defintely try it. This nail art design is zero on the difficulty scale, anyone can try it & it can be done in a ton of colour combinations. What do you think of Splatter Saran nails? Would you try this design?
