Resort 2012. I thought this might be the perfect opportunity to try out the marble nail techniques I've been dying to experiment with for a while now. After all, if there's any way to capture kitschy-cool waves on your nails, it's going to be with marble swirls of color.
I will spare you the messy how-to's, but it basically included a lot of water, nail polish, lotion to protect my fingers from the polish, trial, and error. The marble looks is pretty awesome when you get it right, but if you are going to try it out, I do not recommend using white as it goes on too sheer. Add a few flowers and you're Stella-approved.
