How to Use Plastic Wrap For Nail Art

You Can Use Plastic Wrap to Create Marble- and Crystal-Look Nail Art

Looking for a fun, supercreative nail-art DIY to occupy more time spent at home?

It might take a little bit of practice, and you definitely require a few pieces of equipment aside from the plastic wrap, but who doesn't love a good beauty hack, right?

Once it's dry and the texture is created, you can paint over it for a multicolor approach or dust glitter on it for a metallic marble effect. File down until smooth and seal with a shiny topcoat, creating a galaxy-like new set that will have everyone asking you about your nails. Of course, as with any art, the options are limitless, so keep reading to find our favorite picks from TikTok and Instagram, and get some nail inspo for yourself!
