How to Do a Marble Manicure at Home

See What a Marble Manicure Looks Like

Check out this cool marbled manicure tutorial from OnSugar blog Beauty & The Blog:

I just saw this manicure yesterday tweeted from Modern Salon. I thought, "OK, sure, for clients," but this could also be one for the DIY'er. So I cleaned off my three-day-old salon pro manicure and pulled out my editorial nail kit. As recommended in the Modern Salon instructions, I chose three shades: Sally Hansen White Tip, Essie Splash of Grenadine, and OPI Lincoln Park After Dark.

To see pictures and find out how she did the rest of the manicure, just read more here. And if you've got your own cool manicure ideas, why not start an OnSugar blog yourself?

awhile ago i was at Charlotte Russe and found 3 in one nail polish (a bottle with three layers - each a different color) it gives somewhat of the same look after application that this technique does, but i think i'll try it anyways...

Hi I tried this before! I have an idea: 1.Get 2 shades (I personally like the candy cane shade) white and light pink. 2. Dip the polish in the middle every time you drop a shade in the water. 3. Put your finger nail where the pink and white are mostly striped. 4. Get a toothpick and remove the excess. 5. Dip out and wollah, a candy cane nail polish!

Thanks for comments on my blog feature! Great to hear all the positive responses. FYI: I'm over 30 :) - I think colour choice would definitely come in to play for age, lifestyle and personality. For example, I stay clear of glittery frosty nail colours but love them on other people! BTW: I was asked if I thought marble toes are possible - for me no as I don't take yoga! :) Cheers, Andrea Claire hair & makeup artist

i tried worked and gave the right effect. however, i didn't like how it looked so barbie-ish so i took it off and repainted a solid color. it might have been my color choices (a violet and white) i think it's super for a younger girl, just not someone almost 30! :)
