Negative Space Saran Wrap

Hey everyone! I hope you're all managing to stick to your new years resolutions so far now that the first week of January is officially over. I haven't actually started my 'get fit' resolution as my birthday is next week so I want to be able to eat as much cake as possible. However, second on my list of resolutions is to try more indies, and this is exactly what I've done for this design. I've been trying out some Ard As Nails polishes, and for this design I used Olly* and Sharona*, but you'll see the rest soon too. 

For these nails I was completely inspired by this design by Chelsea Queen from ages ago (took me forever to find that link!), but rather than doing watercolour nails I wanted to do saran wrap. I also tried to make it my own a little bit so of course it's nowhere near as gorgeous as the original, but I'm still pretty happy with how they turned out.

This is my first manicure using Kiesque's Liquid Pallisade*, and it has absolutely revolutionised doing nails for me. I know it's been around for a while but I've not really dipped my toe (or should I say finger) in at all and I can tell I've definitely been missing out. I've already done 4-5 designs using it and I'm sure there will be more, but this is the first to be posted. No more faffing around with tape (although I'm sure it will still get use somewhere). I'll be doing a full review on it soon but I think it's clear that I love it. 

For the purple base I used Ard As Nails - Olly*, and the nude base is Ard As Nails - Sharona*. For the negative space I used Kiesque's Liquid Pallisade French*, which has a thin brush for precision.

Then I used Mavala - Petunia, Barry M - Sugar Apple, and OPI - Just A Little Rosti At This for the saran wrap, topped with OPI - Pirouette My Whistle and loose glitter that was gifted to me by Very Emily. Finished off with a coat of Seche Vite.
