Marble Nail Art Tutorial

It has been a little while since I last posted; the manic month of February meant my nails have been lacking nail art and has been a bit quiet. But I am back and today's nail art tutorial is something a bit trendy. Marble interiors are all over Instagram, so I thought I would jump on the craze and marble up my mani. This look was inspired by the super talented Alice at One Nail To Rule Them All.

What Will You Need?
All you will need to create this look in a pale pink, white and black polish, a sponge, striping tape and some nail art gems.
The polishes I used were Essie 'Fiji' (pale pink), Illamasqua 'Boosh' (black) and Illamasqua 'Scorch' (white). The gems/studs are from the Avon nail art gem assortment wheel.

Step-By-Step Tutorial:

Step 1: Begin by painting all nails in a few coats of the pale pink shade and leave to dry completely. To speed up drying time get your hands on a quick dry top coat, I used Seche Vite.

Step 2: Taking a piece of striping tape, place this just below the centre of each nail.

Step 3: Paint the space below the striping tape in a coat of black polish. Once this is almost dry, take the white polish onto a sponge and carefully press this over the tip to create the marble effect.

Step 4: Remove the tape, paint a layer of top coat onto each nail and carefully place a gem/stud in the centre.

And there you have your marble mani!
