Nail Art: Drip Marble and Negative Image Stamping

Hey lovelies! Ready to see some more nail art? I’ve been nail art’ing like a crazy lady! I had very little time last year to do much art, which I missed greatly. Most of us in the polish community find polish to be a release, an outlet.. or be a therapy of sorts. I’m no different. Suffering from chronic pain polish provided me with a distraction, and on my worst days I can always look down to my nicely painted nails and find a smile despite the pain. When I could no longer work I lost my creative outlet, so nail art was a fantastic way to still have a creative outlet. So the nail art was always so important to me and I’m really enjoying the extra time right now to focus on doing more art.

Nail Art: Drip Marble and Negative Image Stamping

A couple weeks ago I did my first drip marble mani. I was/still am completely in love with it, so I’ve done a few more since then. Let’s start with the polishes I used for this one.


Polishes Used:

  • Colors by Llarowe Stormy Seas
  • JulieG Tahiti
  • Sinful Colors Garden Party
  • Dance Legend Spot it White
  • Quixotic Polish Opal
  • Quixotic Polish Shiny New Seahorse
  • Quixotic Polish Viridi Ignis

I really liked how this turned out, especially all the flakies from the Quixotic polishes. But I knew immediately I wanted to do some reverse image stamping over it. So after sifting through my stamping plates (which I seriously need to reorganize!) I decided on UberChic 7-01 which had this super cute floral reverse image. Anybody know what type of flower these are?

I didn’t stamp over my first drip marble, as I could not bring myself to cover it up. But I’m so glad I did the stamping this time. I actually much prefer this one with the stamping! I hope you like it as much as I do. Stay tuned – I have the first of Spring collections coming up this week. Are you as ready as I am for some warmer weather and sunshine?
