Day 9-Saran Wrapped Pistachio

This is my first time trying out the saran wrap method and I have to say that it isn’t exactly my favourite manicure. Maybe it’s the lack of control I have over what my nail looks like in the end. This manicure was one that I actually had to do twice because my first combination of dark and light brown ended up looking like bathroom-doings…so I changed the dark brown to a bright spring-like green also known as Lime Crime-Pastelchio layered over top Essie-Brooch the Subject. I then finished off with a matte top coat which toned down this textured mess of polish just a little.

  1. This is cute! Yours turned out a lot better than mine. I'd have to agree about the lack of control thing :(

  4. Ahaha "bathroom doings"! That made me laugh out loud. My imagination suggests that this is a much better colour combination! I love the effect, for some reason it reminds me of those duo coloured Jelly Bellies x
