Saran Wrap Spiderwebs

Another Halloween manicure? Oh yeah, you know it!


This manicure was actually my first ever Saran wrap marble attempt, even though I am posting it after the purpley one from earlier this week. I began with a base of Sally Hansen Wet Cement, and then once that was dry I painted on a layer of LCN Tokyo Expression. Then I swiftly took a wadded up piece of plastic wrap and dabbed it on to create the pattern.


The final step in this manicure was the webbing. I actually used a Migi nail art pen this time, instead of my usual nail art brush. It was an interesting experience, and I while I do think I need a bit more practice to refine my lines, I was pleased with the outcome.

The Migi pens are different from, say, the Sally Hansen ones. The SH ones are more like actual pens, where you just hold it and draw on. My experiences with those pens have not been very good at all... I don't think they draw well, they are watery, and the lines I draw don't always hold their shape. These Migi pens are the type where you squeeze the body of the bottle and it comes out a metal nib.


The pen I used also drew on kind of thick, but I'm sure that was more my inexperience with it than anything. The topcoat mostly took care of that but I could still feel a few bumps here and there.


For those of you that have Halloween parties tonight (like me!) be safe and have fun! :D
