NailArt Sunday – Stone Marble

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

You don’t see a lot of nail art on this blog, and that’s something that I’m trying to do something about. Some of my excuses are lack of time and lack of skills, but you have to practice to get better right? And today is Sunday so I can actually take part of Lela’s NailArt Sunday! When I saw this beautiful manicure at One Inch Nails yesterday I wanted to try something similar myself. Can you really go wrong with some plastic wrap?

Well, my take on it is nowhere near as beautiful, but I kinda like the effect, it reminds me of stone marble so that’s what I’ve decided to call it. The base is a week old manicure with China Glaze Below Deck, a taupe/mauve type of color. I figured I should go with another neutral color on top, so I chose Pelican Gray from the same collection. I applied one coat of that, and then immediately dabbed away on the nails with a piece of scrunched plastic wrap.  To get an even texture I then added a coat of Seche Vite. The index finger nail looks a bit messy, I had to redo a part of that nail.

This last picture is pretty bad in quality, but I just wanted to show you a full hand photo of the manicure:

It may not be the most exciting manicure, but I like it with its discrete colors.
