August Nail of the Month - Glitter Marbles

Hi all!

This month I have come across such amazing nail art techniques which give a professional effect on nails. There is one in particular I think looks fantastic and so different and its become my fav look of the month. Here it is....

Soo cute right! I love this look! This is known as the marble/watercolour nail mine may not be as good as others out there but I'm really happy with how they look especially as I'm not the best at nail art! lol Also this was soo easy to achieve, and the fact that it doesn't have to be neat is great...i have trouble staying inside the lines and being neat! ;-)

1. Boots 17 - 'Forever' 2. Rimmel - 'Pop Rose' 3. No.7 - 'Lucky Lilac' 4. MUA - 'Shade 5'

Step 1 -
Apply a nude base colour, for this I used 1. (see above) but you could use any nude colour or white if you'd prefer.

Step 2 -
Once the base has completely dried take any 3 colours you'd like to use for the look, I used 2, 3 and 4 (see above). Then just dap blobs of all 3 colours roughly onto your nails, you don't have to be neat.

Step 3 -
Take cling film or a plastic bag cut up, then place on top on the nail and press gently so that the colours mix together, then remove. Do this with all nails.

5. No.7 Top Coat 6. Chit Chat - 'Gold'

Step 4 - optional
Apply a glitter top coat for added sparkle I used 6 (see above).

Step 5 -
Put on your favourite top coat, I used 5 (see above). Then of course you'll need to do a lot of cleaning up around the nails!

And that's it! You should have fabulous nails which will get a lot of attention, mine did and I loved that people were so intrigued, it was so easy and I got a great result. :-)

Will you be trying this look out?
