Nailvengers Assemble! New Year, New Technique


Happy Friday everyone!! I don’t think I’ve ever been this happy to see the weekend. It’s been such a hectic week that I feel like I could sleep right through to Monday morning.
I’m back today with another new project that I’m lucky enough to be a part of… Nailvengers Assemble! Myself and a few other British Nail Bloggers have gotten together to start a monthly challenge amongst ourselves and for January we’re going for New Year, New Technique which is fairly self-explanatory – pick something you’ve never tried before and do it!



The ladies that will be joining me on this quest are the amazing bloggers behind One Nail to Rule Them All, Lucy’s Stash, xAmeliax and Brit Nails. We all met at the Cosmo Blog Awards back in October and have been in touch ever since. As inspiration and creativity was drying up for us towards the end of last year, we decided we should start setting ourselves a monthly prompt and work as a group to motivate each other and get those creative juices flowing again!

For my New Technique, I’ve gone for Saran Wrap nails. It’s such a simple technique and you can achieve some amazing looks with it, yet I’ve never tried it before. I followed Amelia’s tutorial for this but with a pastel colour scheme and I really like the way they turned out. I couldn’t resist adding a bit of stamping over the top and a glitter accent too!


I used China Glaze Tart-y For the Party as my base colour. Then I got down to the saran wrap-ing with Collection Think Pink and China Glaze Fade Into Hue. Check out the tutorial on xAmeliax's YouTube Channel.

The glitter on my middle finger is Sally Hansen Be-Jeweled and I stamped on the design from MoYou Fairytale Collection 02 plate using BK Matte White.

It’s all topped off with two coats of Glisten and Glow HK Girl.

  1. Fun fact! I created the saran wrap technique waaaaay back in April of 2012. I used a pastel theme too, to imitate the look of Easter eggs. You can find that tutorial in my page's list of tutorials. :)
