Marble Nail DIY 

Beauty, DIY, Lifestyle June 30, 2016


My obsession with marble continues. I’ve gone from covering everything in marble contact paper, to hunting through a small quarry for the perfect table top, to buying this super adorbs notebook, and now I’m getting my nails mixed up in all this.  

My inspo, a marble notebook, came from Homegoods where all beautiful things are born. I picked three corresponding polish colors, black, copper, white, and a shiny top coat.  Also note that you’ll need a cup and a tinie tiny paintbrush.  Paint your nails black…I don’t think you need me to show you that.  

Watch this video for a little first hand knowledge. I tried a few things first, my freehand sucks but the water trick worked really well. Start with a cup of lukewarm water, fill the cup to the top, add a drop or two of the color you want, and stir it to create a little design. Then dip your nail. Don’t be surprised if you get covered in polish spiderwebs. Just remove with a cotton ball and some acetone. 


Get your tinie tiny brush, dip it in some copper and add a few metallic flecks and lines. Then dip the brush in acetone and make the lines a little less structured, blend them a bit. 


Now add a few layers of clear to add some shine. 


Then you’ve got marble inspired nails! You’re welcome!!!
