Summer Brights Acetone Marbled Nail Art

Sunday, July 07, 2013
This is one of those cases (which actually happens to me a lot) where this design was supposed to be something completely different.  I still really like the outcome, and I will give you a little description of how I created this design down below.

What I used:

China Glaze Make a Spectacle, China Glaze Pool Party, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Orly Skinny Dip, Lime Crime Lavendairy and Pastelchio, Dior top coat, a cosmetic sponge, (and Beauty Secrets Pure Acetone & a nail art brush, not pictured)

I used a base of My Boyfriend Scales Walls and added top coat (this is a must when using acetone!).  Then, I made random brush strokes and dabs of polish with each color, very messily covering the majority of the white base.  While the polish was still wet, I dipped a nail art brush in some acetone and swirled or "marbled" the colors together.  I had to dip my brush in acetone and swirl the polishes a few times so they looked the way I wanted.  The accent nail is a simple gradient of Lavendairy, Skinny Dip, and Pastelchio, topped with Make a Spectacle.  I really love how the accent nail turned out!

I love having some super bright nails to look at, especially if I'm not in the greatest mood.  They just cheer me up instantly (I know, that probably sounds really silly!).

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this post!  I have a lot of swatching to do since I have received an insane amount of nailmail recently, so you will probably be seeing a few swatch posts soon, plus hopefully some new YouTube videos!

Thank you for reading! :)
