105th Fashionable Fridays - Paint that Nail

Happy Friday! Today I'm going to show you how to get these marble nails! They are super easy especially if you aren't very good with your non-dominant hand!

Start off by painting your nails a thin coat of whatever color you want to use for the base of the marbling. I chose Color Club- Take Me to Your Chateal.

One nail at a time, use the same base color and paint on one thick coat.

While the base color is still wet dot on the colors you want to be in the marble. I chose Wet n Wild fastdry- Silvivor for the silver then the lighter blue is Venique- Rolling Tides and the darker blue is China Glaze- Blue Year's Eve.

While that is all still wet swirl the dots together with a sewing needle or toothpick. The needle leaves less bald spots since the tip is smaller/thinner. Finish all your nails and all you're left to do is apply a topcoat and you're done!

Have a great weekend everyone!!(:

Thanks Kristyn! So elegant - just gorgeous!
