My attempt at marble nails! Sorry for the dreadful quality of the images - really need to invest in a good camera!!
I used Barry M - Blueberry Ice Cream and Nails Inc - Denim (the free one when you buy two diet cokes). You can of course use any colours you like - I wanted a subtle look as I had never tried this technique before and had work the next day. Next time I use this technique I'm going to use contrasting colours so that the effect can really be appreciated.
Considering this was my first attempt at marble nails - I was pretty happy with the effect... I'd imagine it'd be a lot easier to do on false nails because you wouldn't get varnish all over your fingers.
Tip: Use either a thick layer of Vaseline or sellotape around the finger nail so that you've got less to clean up when you're done! If you use sellotape... make sure you're not too quick to take it off as you'll just end up smudging the pretty marble effect.
For how to create this effect check out the YouTube videos here :)
