Lazy Day Marble Stone Nails

I'm addicted to nail polish. I'm no pro at nail art or anything, but going even a day without my nails done is torture. I particularly hate the feeling of folding linens or handling paper with bare nails! It's weird and cold and dry and I don't like it. Maybe it's because I've basically been wearing nail polish since the day I was born (my mom painted one of my nails so that she'd know which baby was hers even if they mixed up the name tags in the hospital), or maybe it's because I think the white parts of natural nails is gross. I don't know! Anyway, because my nails grow so quickly I need to paint them at least once per week.

Lately I've been seeing lots of marble stone patterns on Instagram, at H&M Home, and Pinterest. Instead of going out and buying a bunch of marble patterned clothes that'll be out of style soon anyway, I decided to try and recreate the texture on my nails - something that changes as fast as trends anyway. Turns out, getting a marble stone texture on your nails is super easy! All you need is white nail polish, light gray polish, black polish, and some cellophane (plastic wrap). Scroll down to see the step by step directions.
