A Brazilian Nail Marble
Samira’s visit from Brazil made nail marbling mandatory. She had never tried it before, so we decided it was definitely time! Her nails turned our really well for someone who had never done it before. Let’s take a look at what she used:
She started out by painting a white base using China Glaze’s White on White Nail Polish.
Next step would be taping around your nails with scotch tape. Once ready, you start dropping the polishes into the water, alternating colours and creating rings.
Keep repeating this process until you have several rings and your water looks something like this:
Then, using a toothpick, create a design in the water.
Once you have a design you are happy with, get ready to dunk your finger in. If you want, feel free to dunk more than one finger at once.
Repeat for all your fingers, remove the tape once dry and enjoy the finished look!
I thought she really did a fantastic job for her first try and she only had to redo one finger! (Much better than my first attempt!) She is definitely now an expert and can teach all of her friends back home in Brazil.
I also marbled my own nails at the same time, but didn’t take any progress pictures. I do however have a couple of images of the finished manicure. I decided to do a simple blue and green marble.
