d.i.y marble nails

So much has been going on with new ideas for manicures lately, and I thought I would try something different. Despite the long process of these marbled nails, the finished product is quite interesting! So excited that they actually turned out, and I cannot wait to play around with more colors for spring! The idea has been inspired by Topshop's S/S11 line that is filled with colorful printed dresses. Check out the brand's beauty launch party here.

And, do it yourself:
1. Take a bowl of water and drip in 2 or 3 different shades of nail polish.
2. Using a toothpick, swirl the colors around until they’re mixed.
3. Then, dip you fingertip into the mixture quickly, and then pull it away.
4. Using a cotton ball, carefully remove the polish around the nail (this takes a while, and is helpful if you wrap the toothpick in a nailpolish-soaked cottonball to get the edges).
5. C'est fini!
