Christmas Dry Marble Nail Art

Photos taken in direct sunlight indoors

Some nail art is worth repeating and this is a duplicate of one I did a year ago.  See last year's manicure here to compare. This is done using a dry marble technique with a dotting tool and three nails polishes.  I used a gold nail polish from OPI called Goldeneye for the base, two coats. For the dots of color on top I used a red & a green polish. The red may be Sephora by OPI's Sample Sale or another very similar color, since it's an unlabeled mini and I may have put it in the wrong box. For the green polish I used a holographic polish from Nubar called Reclaim.  Instructions on how to do this manicure are fully explained here.  I started out trying to come up with a fall marble design, but I didn't like any of the designs I came up. So I decided to just repeat one of my favorites. This manicure lasted eleven days before chipping on the right thumb.  There was tip wear within a few days, but from a normal distance it was unnoticable.  Dry marble art is very easy to do with a little practice and not messy at all compared to wet marbling.  I dare you to give this technique a try and post a link to your results below in the comments!  Just make sure that you review my tips, view the video tutorial I recommend watching and practice first. I assure you that you will receive many compliments and comments about how difficult it must have been to do!  If you have any questions, feel free to ask below.  I updated my Julep Maven December box post with swatches and reviews, check that out here.
