Marble Nails Tutorial
To achieve this polished look at home, simply slick on one or two layers of a white polish across the entire nail bed. Then take some foil and put black and white acrylic paints on it and drip some water. Now use your thin brush or a toothpick to mix these colors and create grey. The next step is to draw asymmetric lines on the nail to make it look like a marble stone. You ought to make some different shades of grey, so that the pattern looks natural and spontaneous. Now use a white nail polish and cover the whole nail with it. This way you make lines fade a bit, so your nail does look like a marble. You can continue drawing, as the coat dries. It looks really nice if you draw new lines close to old, faded ones. Again, use more shades of grey to variegate it. When you are done and all the paint has dried, cover each nail with a transparent top coat. Easy enough, right.
