Easy Marbleized Nails

Not everyone was born with a steady hand, which means the nail art trend is practically impossible for those who simply can’t manage to make neat designs. But don’t worry – there’s a cool new way to do nail art that’s easy and just as gorgeous. Here’s how to do it, according to KeikoLynn.com.

Gather your materials. You’ll need a top coat and a base coat, like Nailtini – Mixer Nail Base Color. Then gather up the polish colors of your choice, which you could find from POP Beauty – Nail Glam. You’ll also need a bit of tape, a toothpick, nail polish remover, Q-tips and a paper cup of water.

Start out by painting all of your nails with base coat, then painting one coat of polish on the nails you want to marble, and two on the ones you don’t. (You could marbleize all of them if you want!) Then, on the fingers you are marbling, apply tape everywhere but leave the nail exposed. Drop dots of different colored polish into the water, creating a bulls-eye.

Use the toothpick to make the design of your choice, then hold your finger parallel to the surface of the water and dip your nail into it. Use the toothpick to stir up the excess around your nail while it’s submerged. Take your finger out and remove the tape. It’ll be a bit messy, but just use the Q-tips and remover to clean it up. Apply top coat and you’re done!
