Pastel Marble Nail Art Tutorial | Super Easy Chic Design
This marble nail art tutorial I’m going to teach you today isn’t just super easy, it’s also less messy! Not only that, we’ll also be using pastel colors! Perfect for this Fall!
You don’t have to limit yourself to the usual methods of marble nail art making! I personally prefer not getting polish on my fingernails. The cleaning process is just so tedious afterward. This time, you’ll only need your polishes and a plastic wrap to do the trick! Plus, it takes almost no time at all for cleanup!
What you’ll need for this pastel marble nail art tutorial:
- Kleancolor Pink, purple, and blue pastel nail polishes
- Sally Hansen white nail polish (as base)
- OPI Base and top coat
- Plastic wrapper
Step 1: Prepare White Base Color
After prepping your nails properly, apply a base coat to protect your nails from the chemicals in nail polishes. Paint your nails a snow white base. This will emphasize your marble design later on.
Let it dry completely before starting on your waterless marble nail art.
Step 2: Start With Purple Droplets
Lay your finger on a plastic wrap that’s been spread out. Starting with the purple pastel polish, put droplets randomly on your nails but do not let it dry out.
Step 3: Add In Pink Droplets
While the purple droplets are still wet, add some pink dots as well. Don’t worry about overlapping them. They’ll get mixed in together later on.
Step 4: Continue With Blue Droplets
Add one more color – the blue polish – on your nail and you’re good to go! Again, don’t be scared of overlapping the dots. This won’t matter when we start marbling later on.
Step 5: Start Marbling With The Plastic Wrap
Remember the plastic wrap that you put your finger on, that’s what we’re going to use for marbling!
While the dots are still wet, press the plastic wrap on your finger. This action should create a swirling effect on your nail similar to the design you would have made had you dipped your nail in water.
The plastic wrap will mix all of the colors together, thereby creating a marbling effect.
Step 6: Topcoat Makes Everything Better
To keep your design intact, apply a topcoat to your newly created marble nail art design! This will also help to make your design last longer.
