A Pretty Cling Wrap Mani


Hey all!  I love, love cling (saran, plastic) wrap manis.  It's nail art that I can actually do!  Today's mani is done with China Glaze Sweet Hook and Orly Decoded.  To do a cling wrap mani I start by painting on my base color and allowing it to dry a bit.  They I paint on the second color, in this case Decoded, and then I dab the plastic wrap on it.  I do this one finger at a time.  The best part is if you take too much of the second color off you can always add more, then dab again.  After that I let it dry a bit then topcoat it.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy :)


Have you tried a cling wrap mani before?  I'd love some color recommendations to try out.  Thanks for stopping by.

*I bought these polishes myself.  Every time I went to the supply store Sweet Hook called to me.  I finally gave in and brought the poor lonely polish home.*

  2. Very pretty color combo...I am loving pastels in winter and this works perfect. I haven't seen Sweet Hook anywhere, but I really like it...I guess I better start searching harder! :)

    1. I don't know when Sweet Hook came out. I picked it up at a random supply place. Thanks for commenting.

  4. Pretty! I can never get my cling wrap manis to look this good when I layer the second polish on. I have to blot it on separately.
