China Glaze Flirty Tankini Saran Wrap Manicure

For the whole summer I wanted to get some of those neon polishes from China Glaze's summer collection. Finally I gave in and added Flirty Tankini to my stash.

I decided to get only one polish from that collection, because I know that I don't usually like neons on myself. And this was the case with Flirty Tankini too. It looked really nice and bright on other peoples nails, but I just didn't feel like it suited me. And this happens every time I try to wear neons. I really like how they look in bottle and in other peoples pictures, but when I put them on, I just don't feel comfortable. I dob't really know why, because now looking at these pics the polish looks like it suits me nicely... Oh well, maybe I just have to realize that neons are not for me.

So as I said I didn't really feel like home with this polish, so I decided to spice it up with something, so that I could wear it longer and that I didn't have to remove it immediately. I've been wanting to try a saran wrap manicure for a long time, so I decided to give it a go:

I used Essence Fateful Desire as the top color and I got my inspiration from Nailed It tutorial. I really liked the look of these two polishes together, I'm just a bit bummed out that the look doesn't look as good in pics as it looked in real life. I have to say that I really liked this technique and I'm definately going to use it again. It's so easy way to make your manicure more interesting.

  1. I like the way flirty tankini looks on you but I completely understand the feeling of not liking it on yourself. I have a few polishes I love on others (China Glaze Riveting) but on me they were just so boring and looked out of place.

    1. Oh, I'm glad to hear you get what I ment, I thought it was only me who had these kind of problems.. :)

  2. I've never heard of the saran wrap mani before but that's such a nice design! lovely colours :) x
