WNAC - Dry Marble Nail Art

Random dry marble time! :)
Another Friday, another WNAC - yay!
This time I only failed 3 times before deciding to do this design, that's pretty good I think lol :D

I've been seeing lots and lots of dry marble designs around lately and I love them! I've always loved this technique and I'm so happy people are giving it a real chance. This style is so easy to do and you never get the same results twice and that's ok. 


The trick to this design is to make sure that you work with polishes that don't dry too quickly, that way you have time to actually drag the polish before it clumps and dries. 

I do one nail at a time, I find it gives me the best results.


Usually I will put down one layer as a base, wait for it to dry on all of my nails, and then a second layer and then the other colours once I'm ready to start doing the dry marble with my needle pen. Don't press too hard or else you'll pick up the bottom layer and your design will get ruined. People are using a dotting tool because it slides well, I've never tried that but the logic is pretty sound.


It's almost important to pick colours that will stand out against each other - part of why I failed before was because the colours were too similar. As well, using different finishes will add an awesome effect, like I did with Allure (pink) and Nude (creme).

Beige: piCture pOlish - Nude
Pink: piCture pOlish - Allure
Green: piCture pOlish - Jade
Round crystals: Edgy Polish
Needle Pen (for dry marble design)
Wax Pencil (to easily pick up crystals)


I really like the colours in this design too; jewel tone inspirations were jade and amethyst even though my amethyst came out more pink than I thought it would, those were originally my inspirations :)


Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to check out my little corner :) Feel free to leave me comments/suggestions/feedback below.
