Mock Marble

Mock Marble Nails

As seen in my last post, water marbling can be tricky.  A quick and easy alternative is this mock marble, where the polish is "marbled" directly on the nail with wet polish.


Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Black to Black
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Coin Flip
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Pin/needle (toothpick would work also)

You can use multiple polish colors like with a water marble.  I just used two to keep it simple since this was my first attempt at this style.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a black base color.

  2. Working one nail at a time, apply a thick coat of black polish, then two lines/blobs of gold polish.  Drag a pin, starting in the black, through the gold polish.

  3. Repeat this process on each nail.  It looks best to go at a diagonal angle like on my ring finger.  I meant to do that on all my nails, but mistakes happen when you paint your nails at 2am.

    1. Thank you! I'm a huge fan of black paired with pretty much any color, but the black and gold combo is one of my favorites.
