NOTD: Easy Dry Marble Effect Nail Art

Affiliate Link Press Sample

Today’s Nail of the Day is a really quick and easy dry marble effect done without water. I wanted to create a bright, cheery nail to brighten up this rare gray day here in San Diego, California. I choose bright pinks, teal and purple to really make the nail design pop.

To create this effect put on a thick layer of pink as a basecoat, but instead of letting it dry immediately put on large drops of each of the other colors plus another drop or two more of your base color. Then using a toothpick or pin quickly drag the colors into each other making neat swirls – it will also even out the surface if you drag the polish around just right. It doesn’t need to be perfect though – a couple layers of a good topcoat, like Seche Vite that I used here, will even it all out.

But I just couldn’t leave well enough alone, and had to add some glitter, Zoya Pixie Dust of course. I added these fun triangle moons lickety-split using my Sticky Nails Nail Tip Stencils and I only had to use 4 stickers to do both hands! Want to know more about Sticky Nails? I did a full review of their awesome nail stencils awhile back.
