Nail Art| Blue Marble Effect!

Saturday, 30 August 2014  at 11:52 pm

I'm starting to feel a tad distant from my lovely readers and blog since I've been swamped with uni work and assignments and haven't been able to talk to all of you as much as I'd like. With that being said I've also had a lot on my mind lately, since my wisdom tooth is giving me problems and with my bleeding disorder any mention of an operation scares me to the tips of the nerve endings in my toes. So tonight will be a short and quick post and I'm hoping that I'll be able to upload much more with the upcoming weekend since the semester ends next Friday!
You know what to do :)

I desperately wanted to do a nail art idea using Rimmel's "Barmy Blue", because in my opinion it's the best seductive dark blue nail-polish shade I've set eyes on and reminds me of OPI's "Road House Blues" although it has more of a purple undertone than Barmy Blue which is on the cooler side. To create the effect of a marble effect, I first painted my nails with Barmy Blue then dipped the fan brush into white nail polish and swiped across my nail. At first the strokes were too thick and there was no definition in the lines on my nails, to solve that I dipped the brush in acetone and swiped across my nail again until a marble effect was created. Like all my nail art, it happened by pure accident because A. I have never used a fan brush before and I'm sure envious of nail artists that have clear defined lines and B. this was my first attempt and dunking the brush in acetone seemed like the appropriate option instead of removing everything off my nail and starting from scratch *laughs*.  

As usual you can buy this fan brush here and for more eye candy click here!

I hope that you enjoyed this post and till we meet again!
Bye Bye!
P.S I've started reading 50 shades of grey and I'm currently on the third book and yes, I have an infatuation with Christian Grey!


  1. Beautiful! I gotta check this brush out. Much better than the water marble effect. I'm debating whether or not to start the 50 shades book. All everyone talks about is the sex...and I had no idea it was a series!

  2. I tried doing the water marble effect and yea, that worked out horrible for me, I have no idea how they get to do those intricate patterns on their nails! Something I have yet to conquer! ahahaha, I think you should read the first book and if it doesn't pique your interest then you can stop reading. I honestly only started reading because everyone was raving on and on about Christian Grey and I can see why.

  3. I love this marbled trick! It looks like the ocean, or maybe a line of clouds. Such an easy method, but it really adds so much depth to the nail art.

  4. Thank you Brittney! :) I definitely agree with you, it looks like a line of clouds!
