Marbles About Marble Nails...

Marble Nail seem to be all over the place at the moment - Magazines (LOOK - great step by step guide), Blogs, YouTube etc. So when My sister asked me to paint her nails I thought I'd give it a whirl and here are the results:

The results are gorgeous and its so quick as simple to do.  As per LOOK all you do is apply your clear Basecoat (wait for it to dry), then apply a light coloured Basecoat - I chose Models Own in Peach Sherbet, then into a bowl of water drop a few dollops of different coloured nail varnish in - I went for Barry M Vivid Purple, Cobalt Blue and Blueberry.  Then you mix with a toothpick and dip your nails in and clean off the excess polish from your fingers and Viola! uber funky nails in a seconds.  Though it turns out really cold water isn't that great, though it dries in an instant you have to be quick dunking your nails in otherwise you'll get a gross skin/film hanging from your fingers - EW!

If you need a slightly more in-depth fear, just YouTube Marble Nails and there are HUNDREDS of Tutorials.

Let me know what you guys think? Anyone else got any nifty nail tricks?
