Peacock inspired on Saran wrap

Never really know that the clingy plastic wrap is also known as Saran wrap in some parts of the world. It's only known as cling wrap here despite the many brand names. ^_^

So when I discovered saran wrap nail art, I was wrapped with curiosity. Thanks to Internet, I have another info added in my Book of Knowledge. A better tutorial can be found at Nailed It.

I painted on base color with China Glaze Exotic Encounters. By the way, I have not done any swatches on my recent purchase of four colors from the twelve colors in the China Glaze Safari Collection 2012. Will try to do that soonest. So okay, back to the point... after letting the base color dry, I painted a coat of Elianto Indigo Shine on top of the base. While the color is still wet, I took a tiny piece of cling wrap shaped in tiny ball, dab on the wet color picking some of it. Refer tutorial on link attached above. Then, I put on a coat of  Seche Vite fast drying top coat so that I will have smooth surface to paint on the peacock feather.

Using acrylic paint, I drew the peacock feather on thumb and ring finger nails to serve as accent nails. For the detail colors in the centre of the feather, I used Tony Moly GL01, OPI Fly and Elianto Indigo Shine. I put on another two coats of Seche Vite on every nails to seal the colors properly.
