Last week I had a couple of days off and decided to venture to the beauty supply store to pick up new nail polish colors for summer. I chose bright bold colors and was thinking... wouldn't it be great if I could incorporate these all together? I remembered a tutorial I saw on YouTube on how to do marble nails and decided to give it a shot. I have to say it was a a trial and error kind of experience. I'm much more confident in the technique now than when I did my first hand. As they say, practice makes perfect. All you'll need is a couple of your favorite nail polish colors, a bowl of room temperature water, scotch tape, nail polish remover and q-tips.

You'll need a white nail polish as a base and then others for the marble technique.
I chose Sally Hansen White On, Essie Strawberry Sorbet, Zoya Pippa, Essie One of a Kind, Essie Mint Candy Apple & Essie Big Spender
|Start off with clean nails. I also used a base coat: OPI Natural Nail Base Coat|
|Next paint your nails with one coat of white nail polish. When you do the marbling, this coat will come in handy.|
|Use scotch tape around your nails, on all four sides. This will make for an easy clean up.|
|Drip nail polish into the room temperature water.|
|After each of your nails has been dipped, wait a couple minutes for it to dry. Because the nail polish has been dropped into water, it's not a liquid consistency anymore so it won't take long to dry.|
|Remove the tape, clean up around your nails with some nail polish remover and q-tips and voilà!|
