Nail Art | Marble Mani

Marble is having quite the moment. The luxe look is everywhere from the expected home decor to clothing to electronic accessories. I thought it would make a super cool natural yet high contrast pattern for nail art.

This is very similar to the Turquoise nail art I posted several months ago. I loved that mani and was excited to do something similar. It's basically the same tutorial except for the colour choices. For my marble base, I started with two coats of Zoya Dove, a light gray, and then sponged on Color Club Mod in Manhattan, an off-white. You can switch the order of this and get the same effect. For the veining, I used Zoya Geneviev, a dark gray.

Now, I tried to do the same thing with the turquoise mani by using hair spray in the water marble, but I was having some major technical difficulties. I think my room was too cold making the water tough to marble with and probably making the hairspray too cold too. So, I just dropped some nail polish into the water and went at it swirling around. The hairspray method would work much better, but this wasn't bad.

Are you loving the marble trend? I really want this laptop cover!
