Tutorial: Turquoise Stone Saran Wrap Nails

Ever wanted to create water marble nails but always failed at any attempt? Well, I've tried many and many times before. What better why to create a marble design without water and with just some polishes and saran wrap. I say easy peasy!

The things you need:
- Saran wrap/Kitchen foil
- Base coat
- Two colored polished
- Top coat
- Nail polish remover (not on the picture)
- Qtips (not on the picture)

Step 1; Prep your nails and use a bassecoat before applying your base color. Because I'm going to recreate a turquoise stone, I'll use a turquoise base color. This one is China Glaze For Audrey.

Step 2; Take a piece of your saran wrap, scrunch it together and make a small little ball like so out of it. 
Step 3; Take your other colored polish and put some of it onto a piece of paper. For this step I used Catrice 650 Goldfinger. Now dip your piece of saran wrap into the polish.

Step 4; Dab the saran wrap with the polish on it onto your nails. Come on, rock out. It doesn't have to look neat, we'll fix that later. Applied too little? Go on and add some more. Applied too much? Don't worry, that's what step 5 is all about.

Step 5; Now repeat step two till four again with your base color. Dip it in the polish and dab it onto the nails.  If you're still not sadisfied with your nails, go ahead and take your other polish again. Once you're done with this part and your all sadisfied you have to let the polish dry.

Step 6; Take your nail polish remover and a qtip and clean up your cuticles. Add a topcoat the total look. That's it. Six steps for this saran wrap tutorial.

What do you think of this look? What do you think of the turquoise and golden combination? Have you ever made a turquoise stone or a saran wrap manicure?
