White Marble Nail Art with Tutorial

Hey everybody! Happy Saturday! I hope you're having a great weekend so far. I have white marble nail art to share with you today. White marble has been super popular for the past couple months. I have to admit, I really love it too. I personally think white marble never goes out of style. It's always a classic. With that said, it's way harder to hand paint a marble pattern on my nails than I thought. Marble is never the same so it's hard to get it wrong, but it does have a certain pattern to it that makes it a little bit difficult to hand paint.

The white base color I used for this design is Wedding Dress by Motives. For the rest of the design I used black and white acrylic paint from Plaid. The Apple Barrel kind. It's super easy to mix and thin out which is perfect for this design. I used a few different nail art brushes for this. Some of them were from Winstonia and some were generic ones that I cut myself. The gel like top coat I used is from Lauren B. Beauty.

I think I might give this design another try later on. This was my first time trying to imitate white marble. I think it looks okay, but I feel like I could make it look better now that I know what I'm doing.

If you want to see how I created this design or if you want to learn how to do it yourself, then check out my video tutorial below.

Delicate Glitter Gradient with Bones Nail Art with Tutorial

Hey guys! I'm going to make this post really quick because it's kind of Halloween related and most people are over it already because it's now November, but I wanted to share them with you anyway! This was the nail art I had on my nails for Halloween. I wanted to get this out before Halloween, but since I did it the night before, it was too much of a rush for me to finish the video.

I used Cult Boneyards as the base color and then painted on tiny little bones with a dotting tool and a nail art brush with acrylic paint. The glitter is OPI Pirouette My Whistle. The top coat is Lauren B. Beauty's Gel-Like top coat.

Skulls and Bones Nail Art with Video Tutorial

Hey everybody! Today is my last Halloween themed nail art design for the year!  Although, you may see skulls in nail art designs all year long from me because I love them so much. For this design I covered my nails in skulls and bones over a sparkly base. 

I started by painting my nails a solid black using Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme. Then I added Zoya Storm for some beautiful holographic sparkle. I love this polish! It's so pretty. The skulls and bones were done with Apple Barrel acrylic paint. I used a dotting tool as well as a small nail art brush to apply them. The top coat I used is Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro. I don't hear about this top coat very often and I love it! It's from the drugstore and I always find it on sale. It's one of my favorites.

Here's a fun fact. Right after I finished doing this design on my nails I had an accident with my right hand that landed me in the emergency room. I won't go into detail about what happened to spare you the gore, but the 2 weeks after recording this design was rough. Good thing I made my nails look pretty! It was a good conversation to have while doctors and nurses were power washing my wounds with freezing cold water. Now I have 2 gnarly scars on my right hand.

I hope you enjoyed my small Halloween series. I wanted to do more, but unfortunately the hand accident put a stop to that. If you want to see how I created this design and want to give it a try, check out my video tutorial below!
