The theme for this Polish Days was "Something New." I contemplated doing a true skittles manicure and then I thought about doing caviar nails. I briefly considered doing some kind of splatter or dripping paint manicure, but my first thought, the one that kept creeping into my brain was the cling wrap/Saran manicure.
I love the look of stamping on gradients, so I thought that the marbled look of a Saran manicure would also be a wonderful backdrop for stamping.
To create this manicure, I started off with 2 coats of Zoya Aurora. Oh, she is a gorgeous one; I know that it has been said before by many others and I am a couple of months late to say it, but man is that a pretty polish. It is a gorgeous purple with holographic particles that flash magenta, green, copper, blue, and yellow.
This is Pure Ice Silver Mercedes. I know, I have been obsessed with using this polish for stamping lately. It just works so well and the images turn out so crisp. The stamp was BM-316.
So you can see below a comparison with each step in the process of creating this manicure. I think that when I do another Saran manicure (because there definitely will be more) I will use two creme polishes and dab a little less of the top polish off the nails.

So, was I the last polish lover on the Internet to try a Saran manicure? Have you worn one before? Did you do something new for Polish Days too? I can't wait to take a look at all the other adventurous manicures this Polish Day. Check out a bunch with me.
Have a great time and happy polishing! (With that publication of that exclamation point, the 10th in this post, you are under no obligations to ever take me seriously again, but I don't mind)
