I love the marble accent nails! I’ve seen this design a lot on Instagram and Pinterest so I decided to try it to see how it would turn out! I love both the marble nails and this color by Sally Hansen. It’s such a nice coral color that is perfect for spring or summer. Just trying to bring the lively colors to winter!
For this design, I used acetone, a small nail art brush, a fine nail art brush, gel light, gel top and base coat and the following polish:
Base white: Elite99 gelpolish #1323 “French white”
Grey detail: OPI “Haven’t the Foggiest”
Dark Grey(holo): Color Club “Beyond”
Pearl White: Color Club “Winter White”
Coral: Sally Hansen “Giant Peach”
And of course my current favorite quick dry top coat by Seche Vite.
For the marble nails, there were a lot of necessary layers to achieve the detail. First, I used the gel lamp and Elite99 gelpolish to paint one layer of white for the base. After that has cured, I used OPI “Haven’t the Foggiest” and the small nail art brush and make thin stroke marks. Using the same brush, I dipped it in acetone and and traced over the stroke marks. I repeated this same step with the Color Club “Beyond” and the fine nail art brush. After, I used the Color Club “Winter White” to do the dry brush technique over the whole nail. I took the small nail art brush and some acetone to make light strokes. Finally a layer of quick dry top coat to seal it in. Now the marble design can be done in a number of different ways. I found that this way was the easiest for me to do that resembles marble without having drawing skills.
Tell me what you think!
