Saran Wrap Nail Art

I saw a tutorial on Pinterest the other day using saran wrap to paint a design on nails, and it looked so awesome I just had to try it!! I wanted to try it using a mint green and gold, so when my sister was over the other day I chose her as my subject (poor her!). It came out even better than I thought it would!

The color I used was Turquoise & Caicos by Essie (LOVE this color!!) I started with a base coat and then 2 coats of color. After it dried for about 10 minutes, I poured a little gold metallic acrylic paint (yes, the paint you buy at arts and crafts stores!) on a paper plate. Using a paper towel, I spread the paint out a little, pressed the crumpled saran wrap in the paint, stamped it once on the paper plate to make sure the paint wasn’t on there too thick, and finally, onto the nail. I stamped a few times per nail, but you can stamp as little or as much as you’d like. You may need to re-stamp the saran wrap into the paint a few times. After all the nails are done, I used a cotton swab and nail polish remover to get off all the paint on her skin. Finally, I put her top coat on, and finished them off with dry drops.Saranwrapnails
