I know I based this off of someone else's marble, but for the life of me, I can't find it. It was probably a design of Robin Moses, though. I used different colors than the original.
All of the colors I used in this design are from Cult Nails. Love their colors, the formulas, even the bottles! I'm a fan. These worked really well for needle marbling, too. I've only done this technique a few times, but I'm sure I'll do it again. Regular water marbling is so messy, and though I've only tried it a few times, I've never been successful.
The base color for all the fingers except the ring is Vicious, an eggplant creme. Cult Nails collections have a lot of purples, so I waited for a sale to pick up this one. I shouldn't have waited! It's gorgeous, and I know I'll be wearing it this fall.
The ring finger base coat is Tulum, a tan with a golden shimmer throughout. It's a great neutral.
The other colors in the marble are Bad D.N. (Devious Nature) and Awakening. Bad DN is a pink that leans purple, but is apparently a different batch from the regular Devious Nature. Awakening is a gorgeous dark teal that I am in love with.
After adding a few drops of color to the nail, I swirled it around with a small paintbrush. I pulled the extra polish off the sides and bottom of the nail by pressing my thumb against the nail and then releasing. Before the ring finger dried, I placed three small square rhinestones (also from Cult Nails) into the polish, and sealed it with Wicked Fast topcoat.
A little glam, a little fun, a little messy. I hope you like it, and try a needle marble!
