Saran wrap manicure

I can’t bring myself to say “saranicure.” I just can’t. I said (wrote, rather) “dotticure” and a host of other nail abbreviations, but for some reason “saranicure” is my limit… and now I’ve gone and said it twice. Damn. But anyways, whatever you wanna call it, I did it. I’ve done these in the past but never posted pictures.

I love any manicure that can utilize multiple colors &/or textures. So using the saran wrap technique is definitely a favorite.

For this, I used:

  • ILNP Admire Me, yet another amazing creation from ILNP. It’s a beautiful teal blue holo.
  • Zoya Charisma, one of my favorite purples. It looks neon but dries matte and then perks up again with some topcoat.

Holographic Essie Sable Collar

I have a pretty simple manicure on right now. I knew I couldn’t top my last one at the moment, so it was time for a palate cleanser. I’ve had Essie’s Sable Collar for awhile and haven’t worn it yet, so I figured it was high time. Then I added my holographic top coat from ILNP (My Private Rainbow) because everything is better with a lot of sparkle and holographicy goodness!

Sable Collar is a really nice greyish brown with pink-red shimmer. I added 2 coats of ILNP’s My Private Rainbow, which makes it a bit more silvery and brings out some purple undertones. I think it looks amazing with the holographic topcoat…. but then again, I think everything looks better when there’s holo involved!

Here are some more pictures in different lighting:

I used my Seche Vite topcoat over it all, so you can see a little more tip wear than usual. These pics were taken the day after putting the polish on.

I really like this, but I’m dying to play with my new MoYou plates that just arrived!
