Both marble and shattered glass nail art techniques are all over Instagram at the moment, so I thought I would combine the two to create the look below. Keep reading to find out how...
What will you need?
To create this look you will need light pink, dark pink and black polishes, a glitter/shattered glass top coat, some cling film, a makeup setting spray, a large-ish bowl full of water and some cotton buds.
The polishes I used were Essie 'Lovie Dovie' (light pink), 'Big Spender' (dark pink) & 'Liquorice' (black), along with Avon 'Magic Effects Diamond Shatter'. I also used the NYX 'Matte Finish Setting Spray' for the marble technique.
Step 1: Begin by painting all nails in two coats of a Barbie pink polish.
Step 2: Next take some cling film, wrap it into a ball, lightly paint a darker pink shade onto one side and press this over the nail.
Step 3: Now for the water marble technique. Add two drops of black polish into a bowl of water and spray over the top with a spray (such as a makeup setting spray) to disperse the polish and create a marble effect (shown in the image below). Drop your nail over the polish and down into the water and then take a cotton bud to clean up the excess around your finger and in the water.
Step 4: Take a glitter/shattered glass top coat and paint over each nail. Finish off each nail with a layer of top coat to seal everything in.
And there you have your marble nail art topped with a shattered glass effect!
Have you ever created a marble nail art using water?
Happy Nail Arting!
