Paint All the Nails Presents: Marble

Provided for Review
Purchased by Me

Hi everyone! For today I am joining my fellow Paint All the Nails group to participate in our monthly nail art series. Previous posts can be found under this tag. This month the theme was Marble, with an open interpretation of this prompt. 

I decided to go with a stone marble look, using a water marble method. I must admit that this was not my first attempt, I had an entirely other look I planned and executed but it did not quite hit the mark for me. In the end this one turned out much better. 



To start out, I applied a blank white base using Cirque Colors Carpe Diem. The I used Cirque Memento Mori and Cirque Mermaid Parade (which is an upcoming release, review next week of that!) in the water marble design. I also used Pipe Dream Polish Clearwater, just one drop between the black and teal. I wanted a very organic looking stone marble design and turned out much better than I anticipated! I love how crisp the white is and the contrast with the black and teal blue is soooo nice. 



This definitely got me excited to do more nail art again, which I hope to share more here. Please click on the links below to see what the other lovely ladies in this link up have created!

    1. Thank you Michelle! I neglected to mention that I used Pipe Dream Polish between the black and teal, I updated my post. But that thinned out the black, which is what the smoke in the water look comes from.
