Nail Art Tutorial: Marble Nails


I have been checking out talented nail artists in Japan, Taiwan and Korea on my Instagram account and I got inspired to do Marble nails using gel nail polishes!  

Given the chance, I’d like to do it on regular polishes more since my nails are weak and I prefer to change my polish at least once a week.  But because Marble nails are quite tricky to do cosidering you need a dry base - plus busy hands on mom here!  UV Gel Polish is the way to go for no.

If you do Marble nails, do not expect each nail to look uniform, some “marbling” will come off obvious while some are subtle making it a nice contrast.  I also added glitters because nail art designs look 10x better with glitters - that’s my humble opinion by the way! 

How to do Marble Nails using UV Gel Polish —-
  1. Clean your nails.
  2. Apply a base coat (cure for 30 seconds)
  3. Apply a base color (any color you choose as base, could be light or dark).  Cure for 60 seconds.
  4. Apply a 2nd base color (do not cure), top with white gel polish and gently swirl both colors together using a dotting tool, a toothpick or any sharp tipped opject.  
  5. Once you are happy with the result of the “marbling”, cure for 60 seconds.
  6. Add random glitters if you want.
  7. Use UV Gel Top coat and cure for 60 seconds.\
To make it more clear, I’ve done a quick video below.  Happy watching!
