The texture of the stone with ordinary water

The easiest, but very interesting way to create a stone texture. In this section, we describe how to make a marble manicure (photo), imitating turquoise. For this we need only a bowl of water and a varnish of three colors: golden to mimic the veins of mica, turquoise and black:

  • cover the nails with the main color;
  • as it is necessary to act very quickly, it is better to unwind all the jars with varnish in advance;
  • take a small bowl of water and drip one drop of turquoise lacquer into the center;
  • we wait until the drop completely spreads over the surface and forms a circle;
  • now in the center of the first we add the second, and then the third drop of black and golden hues;
  • after the last drop has gone, we begin to gently mix these three varnishes with a toothpick; moreover, depending on the degree of mixing, we can get completely different designs;

  • since we need to get not the color stains, but the texture of the stone, it is necessary to mix them more carefully than with ordinary water manicure;
  • we lower one nail into the water parallel to the water surface, trying to lacquer it completely;
  • we take a finger out of the water and quickly, while the varnish is still dry, remove it from the skin;
  • doing a similar procedure with the rest of the nails;
  • we cover nail plates with finishing structure; To make the nails shine better, you can use two layers of it.

We cover the nail plate with a finishing compound; You can use two layers to make the nails shine better.

With this method, you can use both conventional and gel varnishes. Naturally, a more dense coating will look much more impressive.

To get beautiful stains, you should use only warm water and mix varnishes as quickly as possible.

In a cold solution, the film on the surface of the water dries out too quickly.

Using plastic film to create a "marble" effect

To obtain abstract patterns on the nails, you can use the usual cling film. To do this, cut a small piece of it and carefully crush it in your hands.

Liquid formulations will never produce the desired effect.

Lucky should be pretty thick, but do not stretch for a brush

Apply the nail polish on the nails of the main color and dry it thoroughly. Now we completely cover them with a second lacquer of a contrasting color and, until it dries out, quickly begin to blot it with a crumpled piece of film. It will partially remove the second layer from the nails, leaving only small colored streaks. This should be done very quickly, while the composition has not yet grabbed. If we are satisfied with the result, we dry the nails and, as always, cover them with a finishing varnish.

Tip! Liquid formulations will never give the desired effect. Lucky should be pretty thick, but do not stretch for a brush.

Using special varnishes

Gel lacquers can have a similar effect. No tricks are needed to create a stone texture in this case. It is enough to choose the lacquer of the desired shade, for example, white with the addition of black chips, turquoise with the addition of small color patches, and make up their nails.

Both conventional and gel polishes can have a similar effect.

To get the best effect, it is better to coat the nails in this layer in two layers

To better fix them, do not forget to use a finish coating.

Marble nail art is quite possible to combine

Tip! Marble nail art is quite possible to combine with a mirror. When used as a finishing compound with a metallic sheen or rubbed with a special metal powder, you will get an even more unusual effect of shimmering stones.

Marble on the nails using gel polish

Since it is a little harder to work with gel formulations, we will describe this process separately. We will need:

  • UV lamp (the more powerful it is, the faster the gel will dry out);
  • thin brush to create color streaks;
  • quality gel varnishes (it is better to take a more benign shellac) 2-3 colors.

If the nails exfoliate, we treat them with a buff, trying to cut all the irregularities

A very interesting picture can be obtained by adding transparent glossy varnish to the "marble"

So, we proceed:

  • if the nails exfoliate, we treat them with a buff, trying to cut all the irregularities;
  • we cover nail plates with a thin layer of a basic varnish protecting them from harmful effects of chemicals;
  • be sure to seal all the ends, that is, the nail slices at the edges; in this case, the varnish in these places will not peel off longer; To do this, it is necessary to miss the very edges, slightly “wrapping” the brush under the nails;
  • send your hands to dry in the UV lamp for 1-2 minutes;

  • when applying a layer of basic varnish, the ends of the nails, as in the case of the base, are also sealed;
  • re-dry the nails;
  • it now remains to paint them with "marble" in any of the ways, for example, with acrylic, which we will describe further.

Marble acrylic paints

In principle, you can work with the usual not too liquid varnishes. But still they are less convenient and drag on for a brush. In addition to varnishes, we will need the paints themselves and a small palette for mixing them. Since plastic can dissolve, it’s better to use a small foil or metal plate as it. If there is no brush at hand, you can replace it with a regular toothpick or needle.

If we worked with water-based acrylic paints, then there is no need to dry them under a UV lamp

So, let's describe step by step the creation of a marble manicure (photo) with a brush:

  • so that the lacquer lasts longer, as always, we treat the nails with a liquid to remove it or with regular alcohol;
  • apply the base paint and dry it thoroughly; Some nail designers recommend working with a slightly sticky base, in which case the pattern will turn out to be chaotic and less clear;
  • now we need to choose a background; to create real white marble, you can take a slightly grayish lacquer or composition with a bluish tint;
  • for gray streaks with darker streaks, mix black and white paints or varnishes; if the acrylic composition is thick, you can add a little water;

Now we need to choose a background; to create real white marble

  • Carefully review the online photo with samples of this stone; Of course, repeating his drawing one-on-one is optional, just pay attention to how the finest streaks are located in it;

  • dry marigolds;
  • we make the veins slightly brighter by adding darker thin stripes to them;
  • re-dry the nails and cover with a finishing varnish, it is desirable that it is not completely transparent and has a white or pastel shade.

New 2017

We describe the main novelties of marble manicure gel varnish (photo). First, the thick acrylic gradually goes away. Today, nail designers use a lighter shellac coating. This type of lacquer also belongs to the gel, but it is less traumatic, and it is much easier to remove it from the nails. To cut it, fortunately, is no longer necessary. It is enough to cover the nail plates with a special compound or acetone, wait some time, and then just wipe off with a cotton pad.

To distribute the varnish evenly over the surface, dial it on the brush so that it is located only on one side of it

You can also combine marble with ordinary varnish on one nail, and cover the rest with a contrasting color. Trim this part with an unusual abstract pattern - and you will get another unusual type of nail art. You can combine and different types of "marble".

The trend design of a part of the nail or individual marigolds with a special composition with a sandy (sugar) effect or a matte varnish looks very interesting. As an office manicure, you can use a combination of french and "marble", in which the main part of the nail is covered with a transparent varnish, and marble stains are applied only on regrown nails. Colored stains can be located not only along the smile line, but also occupy a little most of the nail.

Tip! To distribute the varnish evenly over the surface, dial it on the brush so that it is located only on one side of it. On the tip of the brush it should not be, otherwise the composition will fall on the cuticle. Next, make only three strokes, on two edges and the center of the nail.

Marble manicure finish

Spectacular "marble" patterns can be framed in a frame of gold, decorate the nails with drawings, stickers or single broths. Make a small strip of rhinestones of a suitable shade along the center or the edges of the nails. Try to apply thin contrasting or black stripes on the very edges of the grown nails - they will help you to shade patterns overflows.
