Marble Nail DIY

Always excited when I find new nail art ideas, I saw this one on A Stylish Blur and couldn't resist doing my own version of the marble nail. A quick youtube video later, I was off and running. Here is a photo DIY:

I chose to use pastels, but it would look equally as cool with some brighter colors.
Start with a basecoat (mine was pink).

Drop some polish into a cup of warm water. (Make sure you drop it close, so the polish 
doesn't sink to the bottom!) Add as many colors as you like.

Swirl it together with a toothpick. (I found that it works better when you work 
quickly because the polish dries too much if you wait a while to swirl.)

Dip your nails. I dipped my finger straight in and then scooped 
it up and out at an angle to get the swirls in the right place.

Clean up the extra polish with a Q-tip soaked in nail polish remover. 
Give it a topcoat when it's dry and you're good to go!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just did it with black and gray too. The bolder (and more opaque) colors 
really make the design stand out.

This is so easy, hopefully I've inspired you to get creative with your nails!

So cute! I get nail polish on my skin anyway so this will work well LOL. Also A LOT cheaper than those Sally Hansen salon tape-on nail things that cost $8.
