Green/Blue Drag Marble Nail Art

Good morning everyone!

Today's manicure is this simple design I created by using a toothpick and nail polish. I'll (try to) explain how I created this design below for those of you who are new to this technique.

This actually turned out a lot better than it looks in the picture. After I applied Seche Vite the bubbles thought they'd take a nice vacation on my nails.


For this manicure I used China Glaze Pelican Gray as the base. I drew two, vertical black lines to each nail and then went to work! I reapplied the base color inside the lines then I dropped small dots of Zoya Breezi and Sally Hansen Green With Envy. For my length of nails, two dots of each was enough. I took my toothpick and gently moved (or dragged) the nail polish around to my desired design. After I did all my nails like this I added a topcoat.

For a better idea of how to drag marble, you can watch this tutorial.

Like my last post, "Diva Nails", I removed this manicure soon after creating it. I actually wore this design for about 20 minutes before deciding to remove it and wear naked nails. I went bare for about 6 hours but got anxious and did an Independence Day manicure for the 4th of July, which you will see Monday.

Speaking of Monday, the weekly nail art challenge I'm participating in is taking place in the Facebook group Polish-Aholic Anonymous (PAA).  Make sure you send in a request to join if you're interested. The theme for this upcoming Monday is patriotic. For those who live outside of the US, no worries! You can do whatever represents your country.

Well that's all for today! I'll see you in my next post!
