Anyways the other day I saw Criminal Nails post. She did pool nails using Saran Wrap. I decided I needed to do this. Which is a surprise seeing as I go swimming in a pool maybe once every year(I actually like swimming just not what it does to my skin and hair). But it looked so neat.
My base was the turquoise by Essence, You Belong To Me. Then I got a piece of Saran Wrap, scrunched it up and dipped it in a bit of Sally Hansen's pacific blue. Then like you would when you are sponging. I sponged/blotted it on. Easy as pie. Alternatively after putting on your base coat you can cover it will a full coat of you second colour (like Criminal Nails did) and then blot it while the second coat of polish is still wet.
I thought it came out very summery. It reminded me of a pool when the sun was shining through the water (What's that? Do I hear heat rash?). I really loved how this turned out. I think I'll give it a go with other colour combos! I'm also going to say these are Olympic pool nails. There, now it's more topical.
Love the bit of light on these last two nail shots. Looks it really look like a sparkling pool.
I covered part of a broken laptop protector and now I can throw polish and whatnot over it and replace the paper when it gets too dirty. It's also nice and flat.
