How to Get Marbled Nails with Saran Wrap

I love nail art that is created using supplies everyone has in their home! Saran Wrap nail art is definitely one of the least complicated designs I have ever done. If you know how to crumple the clingy plastic wrap, you can surely complete this cute and funky design. I like how the nails have a funky marbled look to them once the topcoat is applied. 

There are a couple key pointers to keep in mind while creating this nail art.

  • Make sure your first color coat is completely dry before applying your second color.
  • After applying your second color, immediately dab your Saran Wrap on the top of the nail.
  • Dab the Saran Wrap very lightly on the polish so you don’t dent the bottom coat.
  • Apply your topcoat while the second coat of color is still fairly wet.
  • Don’t judge your design before the topcoat is applied because the topcoat finishes the look.

The polishes I used were China Glaze Shocking Pink and China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le. If you use other colors, use this formula as your guide: Choose two opaque colors that contrast in brightness and mood. You can also add more pizzazz to this design by leaving a pink accent nail on your ring or pointer finger.

Watch my video below to see how to perfect this technique.
