Plastic Wrap Nails

Yes, you've read the title of this post correctly, because all need for this manicure is some plastic wrap. And a few nail polishes, of course. :)

These are the nail polishes that I've used to achieve this look: OPI's base coat, Essence's Mr. Big, Avon's Luxe Lavender, Essence's Replay, Avon's Lemon Sugar, and Catrice's top coat. 


After I painted my nails with the base coat, I applied one layer of this gorgeous magenta pink color.
After the nail polish became dry, I put some pastel purple nail polish on the plastic wrap, and then lightly dabbed it on my nails. I continued doing the same thing with the rest of the colors to get the final look. 


As you can see, this can get a bit messy...

...but when you clean the cuticles with a nail polish remover and put on some top coat, you get a really pretty nail design! How do you like it? Will you be trying it out?
