The New 31DC Day 9 - Saran Wrap

He Everyone.  Welcome back to the New 31 Day Challenge.  Today is exciting because it's saran wrap nails!  This is my very first (and maybe last) attempt at this technique.  Why my last?  I don't think I really like the effect.  I'm sure it has a lot to do with my polish choice, but I don't know.  I guess we'll see depending on everyone's reaction.
So here they are.  I was told that they look like "fine Italian marble" from a friend.

WHAT I USED:
Julep Mindy - base color
Ulta High Roller - tough to see gold shimmer
Zoya Julieanne - purple marble
So yeah that's it.  I guess I thought the purple would look more...well, purple.  Julieanne just doesn't work well when there aren't multiple coats.

  1. I think it turned out awesome!!!
    I love the 3 layers. It adds such beautiful "fine tuning" to the color shift. I really love it and I think it should NOT be your last!!!
