Aussie Nails Monday - 3/12 Glad Wrap

Hellooo! This post is going up a bit later than usual because I wasn't as organised as I like to be. :P

Today's Aussie Nails Monday is 'glad wrap' (or saran/cling wrap if you're from another country). This is a technique I've been seeing a lot in the last few months!
This technique is done by applying a base colour, waiting for it to dry completely, then painting another colour over top (usually a contrasting colour) and while it's still wet, dabbing a ball of glad wrap over it.

Here are some examples and tutorials I found on this method:
  • http://blognailedit.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/saran-nails-on-going-out-chic.html (includes tutorial)
  • http://nailderellanails.blogspot.com/2012/08/saran-wrap-nails-with-illamasqua.html
  • http://zabranjeni-grad.blogspot.com.au/2012/08/video-tutorial-saran-wrap-nail-technique.html (includes video tutorial)
  • http://thepolishwell.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/nail-ideas-saran-wrap-nails.html
I really liked the colour combination in the first link so I decided to use similar colours. :)


For my base I used Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac, and the colour I put over top is Revlon Buttercup! This method is pretty messy, at least it was for me. I'm not super happy with how it turned out but it'll do. :)
I used two coats of Sally Hansen Insta Dri topcoat over the mani because it felt sort of rough/bumpy.
