Marbled nails seem to be the latest manicure trend appearing on the fingertips of women around the world and with more than 650,000 posts on Instagram (tagged #marblenails) it's creating quite a buzz on social media.
Inspired by the sophisticated look of white marble, we teamed up with our amazing Laura to recreate this trendy look. Of course, we will do it in our own, glam way and so can you!
Choose your favorite colors from our shop- we have more than 1400 vegan, cruelty-free gel polishes waiting for you!
“For this design I used 4 colors: Sakura, Light Lilac, The Change and Vivid Purple. I love the range of colors Madam Glam offers. The gels are very pigmented and they last a long time on my nails. The shine is amazing and I find them very easy to work with. Best part? They are vegan and cruelty-free! I love Madam Glam.” - Laura
Let's get it started!
1. Apply a base coat, and cure it under the LED lamp.
Apply one layer of our perfect soak-off base gel: apply it as close to the edges as possible but also try to avoid your cuticles or skin. It's really important to cap the free edge. Cure it!
2. Add two coats of our gel, then cure it.
Apply your first coat of gel color. Laurart used Sakura.
Apply your second coat, then cure it again. Right here, she added Light Lilac only on the upper half of the nail. The contrast between this color and Sakura will look like an ombre and it will also create the perfect mix for your marble look.
3. Swirl time!🍥
Using a detail brush swirl around the colors into an organic free-form shape. Tip: you can also try dipping the brush in thinner or alcohol and going over the squiggly lines to get a similar blurred look. For a glam result, add a little bit of The Change.
When you're done with the glitter, blend in some Vivid Purple and your marble nail art is ready!
4. Apply Top Coat
You’re done with the color, so it’s time to seal off everything and give your nails a nice final touch by applying a thin layer of our top coat gel polish. One last time, cure your nails under the lamp!
5. Clean it up + cuticle oil
Using a paper towel and a little bit of alcohol, wipe-off the excess. This procedure will help you prevent the dust and other small particles to destroy your manicure and will also help your nails look beautiful as much as possible.
Finally, apply the cuticle oil and you’re all set! ✨
3, 2, 1...and you're lovely marble nail art is done! Lovely, isn't it?
Just like we said in the first part of the article, you can always be creative and choose your own gel colors!
Laura’s tips for creating the Marble Nail Art look
🍥 Try not to overthink it and have fun!
🍥 Take your time, the gel won't cure until you put it inside the lamp.
🍥 Working in layers creates a real depth and give your nails dimensional look.
🍥 Even if it's really tempting to keep mixing colors forever, you have to know when to stop!
🍥 If you don't like the design, you can always wipe off the layer using lint-free alcohol pad and start over.
