31 Day Challenge, Day 02: Orange nails

Orly Nail Defense
Catrice Fred Said Red (2 coats)
essence Doc (Snow White LE, 1 coat + Cling wrap)
essence Happy (Snow White LE, 1 coat + Cling wrap)
OPI Y'all Come Back Ya Hear? (1 coat)
essence better than gel nails top sealer

So Day 02 theme is Orange nails!

Actually I wanted to go for tie-dye like pattern simply because word for color “orange” in Japanese is “Dai-dai”…I know I sometimes have super seriously weird mind but this was stuck on my head *MEH*

But even I wanted to try for tie-dye like, I had NO idea how I could do that…but I still wanted to go for marble-like pattern…then suddenly I remembered that I wanted to try cling-wrap technique…which made me “Yeah, I MUST do that NOW!”…and turned into this mani :P Marble effect went pretty soft after covering by OPI Y'all Come Back Ya Hear?, maybe I had to do cling patterns with white rather than pale orange/yellow; but I still love the finish and how it’s easy to create :D

2日目は「オレンジ」!……ってところでどーすっぺなと考えた末、オレンジ→だいだい色→タイダイ、という阿呆過ぎる思考を経てタイダイ系ぼかし柄にしようと決めたはいいものの、テクニックが無さ過ぎてどうしたもんかと逡巡してたときにそーいえばサランラップネイルやりたい思ってたのにやってねーなこれは使えるかも知れんと思い立ち出来上がったのが今回のネイルです。

ラップ使うの初めてだったけど結構簡単に複雑怪奇な模様が出来るので素敵です。オレンジ意外とキレイに決まったのもちょっと嬉しい。ちなみに地の色を塗って乾かす→模様を作りたい色をひと塗りしてすぐくしゃくしゃに丸めたラップで表面を軽く押さえるor叩く(=塗った色がラップにくっついて取れるので模様になる)だけの簡単仕様。詳しくはこちらをどうぞー!

  1. I really like this subtle saran wrap effect! I need to try this technique soon, too.

    1. Thank you Sabine *blushes*
      I think one coat of orange jelly made overall pattern pretty subtle & squishy ;)
