Turquoise Stone Nails!

IMG_6964Earlier in the summer I saw a blog post on how to do these Turquoise Stone nails.  Needless to say, I was absolutely hooked! I did this manicure with multiple different colors, as well as the traditional turquoise design.  One of them was even a guest post that I did for Jennibertt! I really wish I could remember where I saw the original post so I can link it back, but I’m sure that many of you by now have already seen this design floating around the blogosphere.

IMG_6965If you guys want a step-by-step pictorial tutorial let me know, but I think you can find much better tutorials from other bloggers. The basic technique is painting your nail a base color.  Then dab on a metallic (or any color you wish) with the saran wrap/plastic wrap method. Make sure you dab off the excess polish on a paper towel prior to applying it to the nail.  Finally, use the waterspotting method for the black (or any color) for the top marble.

The colors that I used to create this look are …

  • China Glaze “For Audrey”
  • Zoya “Ziv”
  • Zoya “Raven”

I absolutely love this look and plan on creating a few Halloween looks using this technique.

What do you guys think? Have you ever seen this technique before?

  1. I LOVE this and YES, I would appreciate it so much if you would do a step-by-step tut! I had never seen this technique until I saw your pic on Instagram when you posted it a while back. It sounds easy enough that maybe even *I* could try it – lol!
