I spend a fair amount floating around the webs, trying to find new things to do and show you. I've come across the Saran Wrap technique quite a few times now and thought I'd give it a try. It has to be sparkly or shiny for me to be interested so why not use Essie No Place Like Chrome? Turns out it makes for an amazing mani.
First up, two coats of Essie No Place Like Chrome. I both love and hate this polish: it's so very very shiny but shows every flaw in your nails, even with a base coat. Next, I grabbed some cling film, balled it up, painted a splotch of L.A. Girl Amethyst and blobbed away. I found that the second and third nails from a polish application turned out better so if I were to do this again, I'd blot the wrap before adding to my nails. Full list of polishes at the bottom.
The Verdict: I love how this came out, despite the amount of time it took to clean up. I'll definitely be trying this one again.
