Laid-Back NEW31DC Day 9 - Saran Wrap

Another technique I have never tried before! My little sister tried it out, though and it looked awesome, so I decided to follow her approach to it, which was to use the same color, in different hues. I started out with a light base, and added a darker color to the top. I love the way this looks, and it is so easy!


 I took a pic before I added the topcoat and the lines looked a lot more crisp.


Then, I felt like it wasn't enough...so I added a glitter topcoat from Physician's Formula called their Treat Yourself Glam Topcoat.


For this mani, I used Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect in Sorbet for my base and added Wet n Wild in Dreamy Poppy with my saran wrap. I really wanted to do something creative, but I liked it so well on its own, so I just left it. :) Here is Sorbet by itself. I have to say, this polish is one of the most awesome formulas I've come across in a while. It goes on like butter and really did look perfect without topcoat. It also hadn't chipped at all after a whole week, but then I took it off because it was time for something new. I'll have to see if they have any other colors that I like. :)


Hope you like this mani. Please make sure you look at what everyone else did, too!
