Marble Nail Art

Marble is everywhere right now, starting from phone cases and ending with jewelry. And tail art is not an exception. It is a nice option for a night out or some formal event. For this effect, you will need two contrasting nail polishes. Apply the first coat of light color and wait. Once it is dry, apply the second coat. For the second step, you will need a toothpick or something sharp. With the help of it, you should apply the contrasting color while the previous is still wet. And the last step is swirling together two colors.

Easy Nail Designs with Hand Painted Pattern

Look at this cute nail design. It’s so easy to do! Paint your nails a pastel green color. But don’t cover them with the polish entirely. You should do a kind of reverse French manicure with half moons. Then make a few black drops on your nail, like a classic polka dots design. The next step is to link them using a thin brush. To finish the design, add small black dots on half moon’s border.
