This weekend I spent some time furniture shopping with one of my best friends who just bought a condo. It’s so much fun shopping when you’re not the one spending money! In our search for furniture, we both became obsessed with finding the perfect white marble coffee table.

I spent last night dreaming about marble patterns (lame I know) so today I decided to create some marble nails, and while I was at it, I created a tutorial for you, because these marble nails are so easy to do!

Step 1:

I used essie blanc, allure, chinchilly & cashmere bathrobe and topped the design off with essie good to go.

Step 2:

Step 3:

Dab the polish gently onto your nail until you achieve the desired look.

Step 6:

dripping-nail-polish-into-waterDrip 3-5 drops of dark grey polish into room temperature water and wait for the polish to expand into a ring. If the polish doesn’t expand, try a newer polish and make sure the water is room temperature.

Step 7:

Use hairspray to spritz 2-3 sprays into the dark grey circle. This will disperse the polish into vein type patterns.

Step 8:

Put your finger in one at a time and hold for 5-10 seconds before removing.

After removing your nail you will likely have a lot of polish on your finger. Use acetone and a small brush to clean the sides of your nail and skin.

Step 10:
