Manicure Monday #8 | Saran Nail Wraps

The other day I came across a saran nail wrap tutorial, I've never done saran nails before and not really thought much of it. I just thought, 'how do they do that?' And really thought it looked tricky until I saw the tutorial and it's actually not as hard as it looks. So I dabbled in it on Thursday late evening and thought I'd share with you how I got on.

I used Barry M nail polish but you can use whatever you want. The two I chose for the Saran look were Pink Flamingo and Turquoise.

It's up to you what polish you want to start off with but I;

Get the look
  • Used pink flamingo for my base, you may want to use two coats for a good coverage.
  • And allow it to dry.
  • Have some kitchen clingfilm ready scrunched up in balls.
  • Apply Turquoise (or your chosen polish) on top of the nail - one nail at a time.
  • Whilst wet, dab the scrunched up clingfilm on top all over the nail. Repeat on each nail.
  • Allow to dry then seal it with a clear top coat or if you like some sparkle like me apply Barry M Diamond glitter before the top coat.
And this the look I got;

 I wasn't sure when I did it but it's definitely growing on me. Not bad for a first timer if I do say so myself.


  1. Its a pretty look, reminds me of the galaxy but different colours lol, xoxo.

    1. I might try it using galaxy shades and remembering lots of glitter. Not a galaxy without some glitter lol xx

    2. It'll be great to see it, I'm still waiting for your hair style pics lol, xoxo.

    3. It's been so hectic. I've not had chance. I'll sort it when I can xx
