Wearin’ O’ The Green (Marble)

It’s St. Patty’s Day soon, so I’ve been doing a lot of greens (not that I need an excuse!) I made a sort of blah green franken, so I decided it would be improved by marbling. It’s festive but the marbling is fairly subtle. I really like this one.  If you don’t know how the marbling is done, check out my marbling tutorial here .      



The colors I used for marbling were China Glaze Gussied Up Green, GoG and 1/2 white, medium green creme I made from blue and yellow creme, and some green dollar store glitter over a medium green base.


I think the pinkie came out the best.

Also coming up: nail art with a rainbow and an adorable pot of gold. Rhinestones are definitely involved.

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.

    The marbeling almost looks like croc skin. Very pretty.

    Thanks everyone! Lucy- I did a marbling using the same colors but vertical stripes, and it really looks like snakeskin. I’ll be showing it soon, after my St. Patty’s day fun.

    Nessa- it’s not too hard, the most difficult part is getting the timing right. Have fun experimenting!

  5. Very cool effect there ,I love it!
