Marbled Christmas Nail Tutorial

While you may have already picked out your Christmas outfit, have you considered what to do with your nails? Here is a fun and cheerful Christmas nail art idea to help you celebrate the season! With a handful of Christmas nail polish colors and a brush, you can easily achieve this marbled effect in no time.

Marbled Christmas Nail Tutorial

How to create this Christmas nail art:

Step 1: Apply Base Coat

Step 2: Apply 2 coats of white polish

Step 3: Blob a few colors together on a sheet of paper (I included white for a more marbled effect.)

Step 4: Using a striping brush, swirl through the colors a few times

Step 5: Paint loose stripes with the marbled together polish onto your nails. (Try to just swipe through once, if you go over any it starts to loose the marble effect.)

Step 6: Layer stripes on your nails until you’re pleased with your design.

Note: Clean your brush in some remover whenever you feel necessary or to switch to a contrasting color.

Step 7: Add a fine glitter top coat if you want.

Step 8: Top Coat!
