My first attempt at saran wrap nails!

This is super easy to do, if you haven’t already seen a tutorial for it. You simply paint your nails a base color (I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Sun Kissed) and let it dry completely.

Next, you paint over the base color with your second color (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in #390 Binding Blue) and immediately scrunch up a piece of saran wrap and press it into the wet polish to achieve the sponged look.

Finally, finish it off with a topcoat! Pictured here I used a gloss topcoat, but I also tried it with a matte topcoat and that looked really good as well.

It’s definitely a fun look for summer and a great way to experiment with different color combinations!

Sally Hansen’s “Blue Me Away!”- 2 coats

Revlon’s “Blue Mosaic”- 2 coats on thumb and ring finger.

I think this is super fun and bright for summer and would be a great look for the beach! “Blue Me Away!” is a bright, electric blue color that is still one of my all time favorite polishes. Great opacity in 2 coats. “Blue Mosaic” is a gorgeous multi-dimensional glitter with blue, silver, and green confetti.
