Needle Marble Design

In Color Club, Cult Nails, Nails by Jacki26 Comments

Hello readers!! I tried a new design technique today. After seeing this post from Liquid Jelly a little while ago, I knew I had to try it. She put this video tutorial up if you want to see how it’s done.

Also, my friend Sarah from Chalkboard Nails just did this other variation of needle marbling yesterday!!

I made mine more “gloomy” colors so maybe they fit in with Halloween coming up. Or, they just reflect the gloomy day we have outside today. Either way, it wasn’t too hard to do and I plan to keep trying at this for new designs and colors in the future.

I used: Cult Nails My Kind of Cool Aid
Color Clubs Artsy Crafty and Blue-Topia to do the swirling
Sponged some Nubar Star Sparkle around the design
2 Coats of Out The Door.
What are your thoughts? I got this gorgeous Cult Nails in a swap with my friend Heather and just HAD to try it out. The sun wasn’t out so you can’t see the shimmer on my nails, but in this picture you can see it in the bottle!
Have you tried needle marbling? Thanks for reading!

    I am trying to perfect this technique, cause I found a pic of it a while ago and I really want to try it! This looks good ๐Ÿ™‚

    I'd love to know how you get the paint so perfect around the cuticles and sides of your fingers. Even when I use remover when I'm done it doesn't look that good. Great ideas on your blog. I love following it.

    Thanks everyone!! Chelsea, I use pure acetone and an angled paint brush. You can use an eyeliner brush for a few dollars from the makeup section and it works the same way!

    Very cool, will have to give this a whirl. Recently got some pure acetone so now I'm excited to redo my nails!
