So what better way to celebrate red and black week than with my very first tutorial. Firstly know this isn’t great, I did try it once before and it came out much better. Secondly I would like to appologise for the really bad iphone pictures.
Anyway Black and red marbled nails, I can’t remember where I forst heard about this concept but I have heard it mentioned in a few places. It is certainly not an original idea.
This is what I used to achieve the look
Firstly apply a base coat of clear nail polish.
Then apply one or two coats of red
When that is dry add a couple of drops of black nail polish to a container of water.
Dip each finger into the water through the black
You should end up looking like this
The surrounding mess can be cleaned up with a bit on nail varnish remover on a cotton bud
I then finished off with a top coat of clear glitter, but that didn’t come out on the pictures,
- natural collection nail varnish in crystal clear
- Rimmel 60 seconds polish in Rapid Ruby
- Mabelline express finish laquer in onyx black
- CK nail varnish in sheer sparkle
