Nails have become the new canvas for many creative people. After seeing Jenny's Water Marble Nail Art Tutorial, I knew that I had to try out these marbleized gems.
Create your own Marbled Nails by following the picture tutorial below. This a good one to try with a friend when you have a free afternoon, as it does take some time. (I found Jenny's Video Tutorial very useful to watch before starting.)
Enjoy your one of a kind nails, and please share pictures with me!
Can't wait to see your creations,
-Nail Polish (as many as you like)
(be sure to have a light base coat)
-A small container of room temperature water
|-Paint a clear base coat & two layers of a light base polish|
-Then tape the skin around each of your nails
to avoid some of the mess later
(I used 2 pieces of tape per finger)
Once all your nails are coated and taped, you're ready to marbleize!
|-Shake brush gently above the water|
(DO NOT let the brush touch the water)
*Note: time is of the essence here...
the quicker you drip, the longer you will have to swirl and dip!
|-A perfect DRIP and Spread|
|-Swirl quickly with a toothpick after you drip|
(avoid letting the paint dry so much that it clings to the toothpick, as it did in this one)
|Swirl Close Up|
|-Peel off Tape|
- Put on a clear top coat
-Clean up any messy edges with a nail polish remover
