Hello loves & happy almost Easter weekend! It’s been a beautiful week here on the East Coast — very Spring-y! I even had a chance to break out my flip flops. So I’ve been feeling all the Spring colours.
Todays look is a nail art technique I haven’t done in a while — Saran Wrap splatter. This is a technique I’ve done a lot in the past, but it’s been a hot minute since the last time, so I was excited to pull it out of my repertoire.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Good. Kind. Pure Hardener
Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
Sally Hansen InstaDri Racing Rose
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod
Essie Butler Please
Essie Play Date
Icing Matte Nail Polish Neon Blue
How fun are these colours together? I feel like these pinks & purples & blues just go so well together. I’ve been doing this technique a very long time, & it never gets old to me. It’s a way easier option than your traditional spatter, & way less clean up. I usually only have a few places I need to clean up with acetone, versus a traditional spatter that makes quite a mess,

It’s Thursday—almost the weekend. Unless of course your entire province is in lockdown & time no longer has any meaning. But that just means more time to paint my nails, right?
Today’s look is a throwback to one of my favourite styles — the Saran Wrap splatter. It’s no secret how much I LOVE this style, & since our days are feeling a bit more Spring-like, I needed some neon!
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle
Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Pretty Peony
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Violet Voltage
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Miami Nice
Sally Hansen Miracle GelElectri-Lime
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Fuchsia Fever

Oh man, I know this neon collection is 2 years old, but holy it is one of my all time favourite Sally Hansen collections. It’s just so bright & beautiful & I adore it. I never get tired of creating looks with it, & I’m actually shocked I hadn’t done a splatter look with it yet. Definitely an oversight. Also I like how this splatter reminds me of tie dye — I know the tie dye nail hype kind of died down a bit (no pun intended), but I still love all things tie dye. In fact, I’ve very recently found TWO tie dye shirts in the kids section at the thrift store that fit me, & I’ve been wearing them non-stop.

Happy Tuesday lovely… a very rainy, gross Tuesday (again).
I thought it would be a good day for some more bright & colourful nails, featuring one of my favourite easy to do designs–Saran Wrap Splatter! This is a design I do a surprisingly amount–which you may have noticed–because it’s easy to do, doesn’t require any specific nail art tools & truthfully is not too messy to clean up. & the colour combinations are endless.
For this design, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Green Tea + Bamboo Strength
Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
Essie Find Me An Oasis
Essie Strut Your Stuff
China Glaze Purple Panic
Plastic Bag (I used a plastic grocery bag that I cup up into smaller pieces.)
Please ignore the chip on my middle finger above–I keep forgetting to take pictures of my nails until after work, which leads to the above situation. Thankfully the design is so busy you barely notice the little chip at the tip. Also I’m loving the combination of this fuchsia & blues–the colours go really well together over the pale blue.
What do you think of this nail art design? What colour combination would you like me to try in a Saran Wrap splatter next? Share your ideas down below!
