Jumping Dashes on Saran/Cling Wrap

Today I have a very simple NOTD to share with you. I've been messing around with Saran/Cling wrap technique again. I really love the one done by Criminal Nails that resembles a Swimming Pool! Such a lovely effect she created there! I was inspired and wanted to achieve similar results. Fortunately, she posted a tutorial on how she did her Saran wrap manicure!

Ah, somehow I really failed at mimicking her style. Its probably due to the consistency of the nail polish used. Mine is somehow pretty opaque. While I think the bottom colour is no problem, the secondary nail polish used to create the effect does matter. I might have to switch to one that's medium consistency. So its not too solid and not too runny, just nice sort of nail polish, (lol). Hopefully on my next try, I'd be able to more successful.

Anyway, I've been feeling rather in between aqua and turquoise which resulted in me using Etude House GR605 over the white nail polish (BK) Beau Kiss #02. Here's my take on the Saran Wrap Manicure :

I wanted to add more fun element into the Saran Wrap manicure and decided to add yellow (Etude House COR202) zig-zag dashes with a toothpick. And turns out looking a lot like jumping dashes to me (hence, the name!). I think this is a really simple way to achieve a fun casual looking manicure to fight off the Monday's blues. ;)

Nail Polishes Used from base :

  • Beau Kiss (BK) - #02 (two coats)
  • Etude House - GR605 (one thick coat)
  • Etude House - COR202 (zig-zag dashes)
  • Konad Top Coat.
