How To Do Marble Nails | DIY





So I got tired of just painting my nails a solid color and decided to switch it up and still keep it classy. I learned how to do marble nails last year via youtube and decided to make a post about it.

Here Is What You Need

Nail polish at least two colors, I found previously three looks better for a more complex design. But, I wanted minimal so I used two. I choose in order After School Boy Blazer by Essie , Blanc By Essie and top coat No Chips Ahead By Essie 

A paper bowl or cup. I used a little glass bowl I found :p
Warm filtered water

Tooth picks or skewers (something with a sharp tip)

Paper towels (this will get messy)

Nail Polish Remover

Cotton swabs (to clean excess nail polish)

Tape


Instructions



Make sure you cut and file your nails then put a coat of the nail polish you want to be the base, mine was white.
 Next, you want to tape around the edge of the nail to protect your finger from the nail polish. You can use clear, masking whatever floats your boat.
 Next the bowl of lukewarm filtered water, since it'll be easier on the polish to spread out.


Since nail polish dries up fairly quickly, you have to move quickly. Its easier if you have all the tops unscrewed from your nail polishes so their ready to use. Make sure you use the toothpick to make your design in a small scale since your nail bed is so small. 

Since I did not want to do my whole hand I dunked one finger at a time then reset the nail polish in the bowl. Being honest, it took me about two times to master the look I wanted. Hold your fingers sideways when dunking and don't lift up when excess nail polish is. Wait until the nail polish dries up to remove the tape.  


You might still have polishes hanging around the edges of your nails. Take a brush or a Q-Tip soaked in nail polish remover and use it to remove any leftover polish. When your done add your No Chips Ahead By Essie and your done!
