Realistic beige marble | gel and rose gold chrome.

Hi guys, welcome back. Today I have another gel design for you. I'm really getting into gel polish and nailart just now. It's such fun. I love all the different types of art that can be accomplished. For today's look I tried marble nails.

The theme of the #clairestelle8march challenge on Instagram was beige. So I went for a cream gel polish as my base I cured each coat for 30 seconds then applied topcoat. While the topcoat was wet I added thin lines of various gel polish in the colours dark grey and beige. Using high quality isopropyl alcohol and a square brush I blurred the lines to get the marble effect.

For the middle and pointer fingers I applied a hot pink gel polish and cured it for 30 seconds. I then added a layer of topcoat and cured that also. Then I applied the metal manix effect onto the inhibition layer and rubbed it with the applicator to bring out the effect.

I finished with a layer of hybrid gel topcoat. I was so pleased with the results. I'm actually really surprised how easy it was once I had the right products. I truly believe practice makes perfect and while I'm not feeling 100% I'm having lots of fun with the trials ;)

That's it for today. I really hope you enjoyed today's post. Thank you very much for stopping by. See you next time.

Love khylie xx
