The technique for achieving this look is called needle dragging marble technique and I was introduced to it by the bellissima Natalia at Polished Polyglot.
This is an easier option if you, like me, think water marbling is difficult and/or messy. Despite the bad cleaning job ;) I'm very pleased how this mani turned out! I'm already planning more color combinations with this technique. :D
|I also did a version with a holo top coat :)|
I used the following polishes: (from left to right)
Catrice Planet Tokyo
Color Club Pure Energy
Sinful Colors Endless Blue
Nubar Peacock Feathers
You also need a needle or a dotting tool to do the stripes with.
Apply a base coat and add the colors (work on one nail at the time).
Drag the lines with a needle or dotting tool cleaning the tip after every drag.
Work fast before the polish dries. Add a top coat. Done! :)
How do you like my peacock nails?
Which version did you like best - with or without the holo top coat?
If you'd like a tutorial just let me know! :)
