I definitely see marble backgrounds everywhere on social media, it seems to be the default for flatlays and beauty bloggers. After seeing Jamie of Tanned Beauty Addict, who showed off her great marble nails on Instagram, I wanted to try White Marble nail art for myself!
Polishes and tools
Cirque Hatch and Carpe Diem
Barry M Gelly Chai
Hit the Bottle Black
Creative Shop plate 01
Clear Jelly Stamper The Big Bling and Bling Brush
Cult Nails Wax That
I started with two coats of Cirque Hatch and then sponged a bit of Carpe Diem to give it some background depth. It wasn’t a lot, just enough to reduce the regularity of the black flecks in Hatch.
Next I stamped an image from the Creative Shop plate using grey and black. I didn’t stamp a complete image on any nail so that they were all different. I overlapped and matched up some of the lines too, to make some of them more distinct than others.After normal Seche Vite, I added Cult Nails Wax That to take down the shine a bit. Real marble might be polished, but it isn’t as glossy as top coat so it needed to be a bit less shiny for me.
White Marble Nail Art
Do you like this design? Are you a fan of the look of white marble too? Next time, I might edge this design with gold, or try adding a few gems or studs to add a point of difference. I’m also considering changing my nail shape to something a bit pointier! Yay or nay? I’d love to hear what you think about that idea below…Jamie has a great tutorial for waterspotted marble nails on her blog too, so have a read of that if you want to try out this trend.
