Nail Art: Drip Marble Nails

Do you all have nail crushes? Someone that amazes you with virtually everything they do? Nail envy. Nail goals. Kerry over at Painted Fingertips does the most amazing drip marbles (among lots of other incredible art). In fact last week she did a different drip marble every single day. I was inspired. So naturally when a nail girl gets inspired she gets down to work. My first drip marble you all…

The actual process of doing a drip marble is very easy, assuming you’re accustomed to working with your own decals. Picking the colors however I think is the harder part. It’s tempting to choose colors from the same color family, but getting some contrast is really important otherwise you’ll likely end up with a murky mix of one shade where nothing stands out. I had a few polishes sitting out on my desk (who doesn’t) so I decided to start with a couple of those, one Painted Polish Stamped in Chocolate and the other Girly Bits Funky Town. I just recently got Dance Legend White Spot It and I definitely wanted to use it. From there I started looking towards reds and brick shades.

    I haven’t seen a marble in a while. This is gorgeous! Looks like semi precious stones.

  • These look amazing! I’m so glad I provided some inspiration 😀 And you did a great job with your colour selection!

  • Kristi Vasquez

    Love this! The pointer looks like a pretty stone!

  • Wow, this looks amazing!

  • So, SO gorgeous, like those mineral stones! I tried making my own marbled decal and ended up with a lumpy, asymmetric mess.

  • Wow!!! These are amazing!!! I have got to try this!!!

  • This is absolutely beautiful. I really want to try one soon. Do you find that you “waste” a lot of polish or is all about just making sure you have the right about of drips and make your decals the size of your nails?

    I love these. Drip marbles are so fun. I feel like cutting them to size is the hardest part

  • marciaf

    It’s so interesting to see that using the same colors for all your nails still makes such unique designs for each finger.

  • These are stellar! The colors and finishes you picked go very well together in this marbled look.

  • This combo is amazing! Yeah decals are tricky! They are the tricky past of the drip!

  • When you said it’s easy, I’m like what? But then again your skill level is so up there. Good job!

  • This is such a cool design.

  • Jen Sky Walker

    I love the colours you went with for this! I want to do one myself and just have to find the extra time!

  • I absolutely love this! It actually reminds me of Jupiter, lol! Especially the ring finger. So freaking cool.
