Luckily I only have to type this and not try to speak it while drooling all over myself. I have an earth-toned experiment with saran wrap to show you guys! I've been meaning to try this one for a while now and I am so glad I did, this is so super easy and nowhere near the mess of a splatter mani. Take a look at mah pretty marbles! (Ignore my dry hands, I was doing dishes when I was like "Oh crap go take pics before I ruin it!")

I am in love with how this came out! From far away it looks mostly minty then close up and it's all like BAM, LOOK AT ME I'M A PIECE OF AWESOME MARBLE! It reminds me of some of the most beautiful pieces of jasper stone that I saw at a bead show one time. I loves me some jasper stones. The clean up on this was a non-issue, I had less issue with it than a normal sponge gradient clean up. For those not familiar with the saran wrap technique, take a small piece of saran wrap and scrunch it up into a ball. Dip the ball into your color of choice and dab away! If I found that I used more than I would have liked I just dabbed at it with an un-dipped portion of my saran wrap and it made it nice and marbled again. This is sooooo super easy and I have no idea why I was ever afraid of it. There is really no wrong way to do it and I love methods like that because it makes my inner perfectionist go sit in the corner while the rest of me can just relax and have fun. I already know I will be doing this again with neons soon, I am super curious how less muted colors will look.
I hope you all are having a great week so far, I'm gonna go poke the numb side of my face until it stops making me laugh. It's gonna be a while.
