The cold, dark days of winter are finally behind us and the warm spring sun is almost here!
That means it's time to pack up your winter coats and bulky sweaters for the season. And while you're at it, you should probably put away your dark nail gel polishes too—at least if the latest nail trend has anything to say about it. Get ready for Marble Ink nails.
As with most nail art, it's probably easier to pay a visit to your salon to get the look, but we believe you could attempt to re-create it all on your own at home! We teamed up with our lovely nail tech from UK, Molly, to create a simple but glamorous marble ink nail art perfect for the brighter sunny days!
P.S: The best news is, the marble look is meant to be a little messy, off-centered, and obscure, so it's a pretty difficult at-home manicure to mess up!
Follow the step-by-step tutorial and have fun!
1. Apply one coat of Blair Waldorf and cure.
2. Apply Light Blue Ink.
3. Apply Olive Green Ink.
4. Using Clear Ink, blend the two marble ink colors.
5. Be glamorous and add a touch of gold to your manicure!
6. Apply Top Coat and cure!
You're all set!
Molly's TIPS & TRICKS
🖋️ Use contrasting colors, they will help each other stand out against the background color.
🖋️ You can play around for however long you want to, there's no time limit and there's no rush. If the ink has dried up and you want more movement to play around with it, just apply the same colored ink over the area again.
🖋️ There is no right and wrong, you can create any look smokey/ marble/ water color. There's no limit!
🖋️ Use the Black Ink at the end if you want some more pop to your design.
🖋️ Clear Ink can be used to blend different colored inks together, but it can also be used on just the one colored ink. Use the clear ink to dilute/lighten the color on areas and to darken the color on other areas.
