Water Marbling Nails – Nude and Gold Design Video

Water Marbling Nails

I love water marbling nails but I rarely see it being done with colours that I would like or that are on trend. With water marbling  nails garish colours are toned down in the water but I wanted to create something more pretty with my water marbling nails today. I’ve talked about nude nails many times here and nude nail art here so you can tell I am a big fan of this seasons trend. Nude nails give a classy, pretty look and, since I am not blessed with beautiful, strong, long nails, make short nails look pretty and slightly longer. Darker tones can make short nails look ever shorter.

I was recently sent some polishes from The Lacquer Lab to try from their Naked Ladies Collection. I was sent the Nude Maja and Kleopatra nail polishes, I love their names! They really are some beautiful nude polishes that flatter skin tones with a brown tinge rather than pink tones which I much prefer. They are similar tones but still contrast well together. I love trying new polishes, a lot of people don’t move from their favourite brands but you have to try new things!

Water Marbling Nails

Some polishes really don’t work well with water marbling nails but lucky for me these were fantastic for water marbling nails. I added some gold polish from Collection 2000 Maxiflex 315 Aztec Gold to add a bit of sparkle. The gold and browns really compliment each other well and make the nails pop.
