DIY Marble Nails

I have been 'researching' or otherwise known as pinning-everything-I-see-on-Pinterest wedding nails and i fell in love with recent Korean trends - imitating precious stones' surfaces. It's insane. I don't have that kinda skill but I recalled one tutorial I came across a long long while back and I tried to replicate it!

I started off with a pink base and decided on 2 glitter accent nails.

Pink: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel (244 Mauve-olous)

Glitter: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails XTREME (219 Strobe Light) + Essie Luxeffect Multidimensional Top Coat (954 A Cut Above)

I wanted a mixture of pinks so these are the colors I picked but you can go with whatever colors you like tbh.

Light Pink: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel (400 Smartease)

Translucent White Polish: H&M polish (Ice Cold Milk)

Sharpie Permanent Marker (Ultra Fine Point): Magenta shade (there's no shade given on the marker!)

I also used some cotton buds and Studio35Beauty 100% Acetone Nail Polish Remover!

1. After your base and top coat dries down, apply random placements of the shades you've chosen. As my base was pretty dark, I couldn't find any markers that was as light as the colors I desire so I chose nail polishes instead.

2. Dip cotton bud into acetone and gently dab onto the splotches you created. Go slow and light. If you find that the acetone removed too much of the shade you desired, wait for the surface to dry and go back in with the polish in gentle dabs and then blend as you go with the cotton bud. 

3. Finish off with top coat - I am using Seiche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Not too shabby for an easy manicure!
