SARAN WRAP NAILS (PLASTIC BAG NAILS)



Hello, today I am going to talk about Saran Wrap Nails. This is a simple nail art created using plastic bag (Saran wrap). For someone new to the world of nail art, these are easy to create and look very stylish.

Here are some of the pictures of my Saran Wrap Nails. I used Wet n Wild Megalast – Color Haze of Love and Wet n Wild Fergie – Gold Album. You can use colors of your choice. Make sure to use two contrasting colors to highlight the look.




 Things needed to create this design are -
  1. Base coat
  2. Two nail polishes (Contrast colors)
  3. A polythene bag (Saran Wrap)
  4. Top coat
  5. A pair of scissors
  6. Q tip
     7. Polish Remover
Let’s get started folks!
Always start with a base coat. This prevents nails from staining and helps manicure to last long. I use OPI’s Nail Envy Strengthener. Paint your nails with color of your choice. I applied two coats of Wet n Wild Megalast – Haze of Love. Let it dry completely.
                                                  
You could use saran wrap used to wrap sandwiches. I don’t have one so I used an ordinary plastic bag( or polythene bag). Most of us have this at home. Make sure the plastic bag is not too thick else it would be difficult to crumple it. Cut the plastic bag (Saran wrap) into small pieces. Crumple these pieces to create a ball (1 – 2 inches in size). We will use these to create a pattern.           
                                             
Apply second polish on the nail. I am using Wet n Wild Fergie – Gold Album. While it is still wet, take the plastic ball and slowly dab on the nail a couple of times till you get the desired pattern. If you end up removing too much of second color, apply another coat of it and repeat the process. (Sorry for bad pics of this step) .
                                        
                                    
 If there are any splashes, use a Q tip dipped in polish remover for cleanup.

Once the nails are completely dry, seal with a top coat and you are done.  Here are few pics clicked in day light. They look so god :)
