I know hat I’ve said that I am going to try to incorporate more nail art into my posts, but it’s so hard when you’re a nail art dunce like me. I can paint my nails with my eyes closed, but when it comes to even the simplest of nail art techniques, I have to practice and practice and then practice some more. While I have seen drip marble nails all over the interwebs, I have never actually attempted the technique myself. When I started seeing Tiffany from Polish and Paws do some gorgeous drip marble manis, I decided to give it a try. Let me show you how my first attempt turned out.
I have to be honest: I struggled a lot with this. I must have tried 30 different polishes of different colors and finishes. I was never quite satisfied with how they looked until I tried it with these three polishes. All three polishes are from KBShimmer and they are: Low and Be Bold, Peach For The Sky and Pansy-monium. I think that the hardest/most time consuming part of doing drip marble nails is actually getting them on your nails. I let the decals dry almost a day before attempting to pull them up and placing them on my nails. If you are interested in seeing the actual process, there are tons of tutorials on youtube. The first one that I watched was by Simple Little Pleasures, and I also watched the one that Tiffany linked on her blog by Painted Fingertips. While I do like how this looks, it’s a lot of work. I might do this for an accent nail, but not maybe for a whole mani especially because I change my nail polish so often. That’s the biggest downside to blogging and swatching: we don’t have time to wear the nail art we create for long. Let me know what you think of this mani in the comments below. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!
