It’s important to me to keep my manicures simple. Since I paint my nails around twice a week the simpler and quicker the nail art design, the better. Efficiency is key in my life — why waste hours on your nails if you’ll just be disappointed when they start to chip 5 to 7 days later (only with Sèche Vite top coat of course!).
The marble mani will take you 10 to 15 minutes, and it’s a great design choice to fix up your week old manicure that has started to chip. This week I’ve been wearing Essie Splash of Grenadine — I have been searching for the perfect purple, and this one looks great and even better with the tan I acquired last weekend. Keep your favourite polish alive for a few days longer with this design.
You’ll need: two complementing lacquers & plastic wrap. Cut the plastic wrap into ten small squares and scrunch them up a little bit. If your nails are not already painted, choose a base colour and let it dry completely. Next, paint your second polish on top (I chose OPI Fly) and quickly blot your nail with plastic wrap a few times to remove the top colour, revealing the original base. You don’t want the top polish to dry so work one finger at a time.
If you think you have removed too much of the top colour, simply paint on your second polish where needed and blot again.
