Earlier 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.
If 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?
