I’ve decided that I’m going to try and experiment a bit more with my nail art techniques. I’ve realised that there’s quite a few I’ve seen around that I haven’t tried, so I compiled a list:
- Saran Wrap
- Ombré (I know, I know…)
- Water Marble
- Stamping (Yup, another simple one)
- Splatter Nails
- Galaxy Nails (I know it’s not a ‘technique’ as such but… ya know)
- Nail Vinyls
- Dry Brush
- ‘Drip’ nails (I’ll try and explain this one when I get to it!)
- Dry Marbling
- Water Colour
Feel free to point out any you think I’ve missed!
First up then, we have Saran Wrap nails… which coincidently was Day 22 for Californails August nail art challenge – which I’m late for (oops). Anyway, I went for subtle colours this time around because I wasn’t sure if I’d like the result or even if I’d be able to do it! It was maybe a bit too subtle… but it’s all trial and error! For the Saran Wrap nails I used Barry M Sugar Apple for the base with Barry M Greenberry on top and finished off with my triangle studs from Cheeky on Amazon. All topped off with Rica’s Glossy Glam (which I’ll be reviewing soon because it’s AMAZING). The rest of my fingers are also Barry M, in their textured Ridley Road.
Other than the fact it’s a touch to subtle I absolutely love this nail art technique and it’s really, really easy to do!
Basically all you need is 2 colours (preferably contrasting) and cling film (the ‘saran wrap’). Paint your nails the first colour and let completely dry (vital) and then do a coat of your second colour and dab with scrunched up cling film! Top coat and it’s done! So easy to do and such a pretty result. I will 100% be doing this again.
One down 13 to go! This is will either be weekly or bi-weekly, depending on how busy I am, what with my first semester of third year at uni starting soonish (eek!) and my 21st birthday in September (yippee!).
Will you be trying this technique?
