Rosy Marble Nails19:33
Recently, I've been seeing marble nails every where. It looked really pretty and easy enough to do. However, you know me, I am not a fan of cool colors and typical white grey marble looked too boring for me, so I decided to make it more rosy and warmer.
Firstly, I applied a base coat. Then I used rosy nude nail polish on all the nails except ring finger - Kiko Nail Lacquer in 372 Nude.
I took a piece of sponge and applied darker mauve nail polish in random areas - Avon Nail Enamel in Mauvelous. If you take a more dense sponge, it will look more uniformed. Unfortunately, I had one with bigger holes and it didn't come out as I anticipated it to.
For the marble cracks and pattern I used black nails polish - Maybelline Color Show 677 Blackout. If you want it to be more subtle and more monochromatic, I'd say use a dark grey instead of black. With the help of nail striping brushes I drew wavy lines. It should look thicker on some parts and thinner on others. I think that you can be a bit messy here. It doesn't need to be perfect.
Then I took gold metallic nail polishes - Essence LE Lights of Orient Nail Polish in 01 Golden Gate To Orient and went over these black lines with it. I tried to make black lines thinner. Gold lines give it a bit more dimension and some sparkle. I also applied it all over the ring finger.
I added a diamond shaped golden stud on the ring finger just to add something something. Marble usually has a high shine and I created this by using shiny top coat - Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. All finished! How do you like marble nails?
