Hey, so that thing I was gonna do, where I get my Wayback Nails for June done before the month is almost over? Um...yeah. I swear, if there were an Olympic medal for procrastinating, I'd...probably miss the competition. But onward, to the manicure! Last month I revisited an early gradient from last May. For June's installment, the Wayback Machine landed on my very first saran wrap nails, a technique that quickly became--and remained--one of my nail art favourites.
Similar to the lineup from that first time, I started these with a base of China Glaze Elephant Walk. Next, I dabbed on China Glaze White On White, Orly Dazzle (silver), Orly Sea Gurl (olive-charcoal metallic), Zoya Dove (light grey), and some Elephant Walk again; then I did a second pass with each of them to make sure it was all built up and blended.
I've started using fewer polishes for saran wrap manicures since I first did these. I feel like you can actually get a little more with a little less, but I still really like the mad, marble/stone look of all these greys mixed in together.
And because I did it last time, I had to hit these with some matte as well. This time I used butter LONDON Matte Finish Shine Free Topcoat. A whole year, and I still can't decide whether I like it better matte or shiny!
Trivia: I have officially lost count of the number of times I typed "saran warp" while writing up this post. >_<
