I'm Baaaacccckkkkkk!

Ok, so I've been gone for a hot second... or two.  but I'm back and I have something pretty cool!  So I was browsing around the other day and came across a new-ish design method that involves saran wrap!  I don't know if any of you have seen it, but I hadn't, so I thought I would give it a go!  I used a silver from Ice, and a super dark blue from Ulta (I can't remember the name right off hand, but If anybody realllllyyyy wants the name I will be sure to put it up lol, just let me know).  This is what I came up with!

Left hand, natural light

Right hand, Natural light-- My camera started fogging up because my basement is supppeer  cold and that is where my camera was, and it's muggy outside LOL  sorry!

Right hand again
I think it looks like an Ocean.... I love it!  I messed it up though, if you look closely (or in some spots not so closely) you can see I pushed too hard with the Saran wrap and took off some of the silver from the lower coat =/  But I almost like that because it looks like three colors instead of missing pieces =P

The way I did it, for those who have never seen this method before, is after applying a base coat you apply your first color, in my case the silver, then let it dry completely.  After your lower color is dry, put a coat of the top color on, and immediately take crumpled saran wrap and dab it on top of it once aaannnndddd VOILA!  Do all of your fingers, add a topcoat and boom pretty fingertips ^.^  I saw a really pretty on Jems from Jenny, but hers turned out wayyyy different, mine were jagged lines and hers turned out more blotchy or distressed (blotchy is a bad word for it).  Maybe it was the type of saran wrap we used, I'm not sure, but either way I like them both lol.  Anyhow, that is what I have for you today!  I hope you all are having a beautiful day!

Don't forget to comment and tell me what you think!
