New 31 day challenge day 9 - saran wrap/cling film


Today's theme was to create a cling-film (saran wrap to stateside readers!) mani. There are a couple of ways of doing this apparently - you can paint your base, let it dry, paint another colour on top and then lift some of the top colour off with scrunched up cling film to make a marbled effect, or you can paint your base and let it dry, then "sponge" another colour on top using scrunched up cling film. I did neither of these though, starting with a white base, then adding blobs of neon pink, blue and yellow on top and then squishing them down with the cling film so they merged a bit. I really liked the effect, and used it as a base for a later challenge, so you'll be seeing it again!
