Paint All The Nails Presents Marble

Press Samples

It’s Paint All The Nails link-up day again! This is a once-a-month linkup between a group of friendly bloggers where we voted on a theme and went at it!

This month Marble won the draw, but of course, marble could be interpreted many ways. You could water-marble, dry marble-marble some decals, stamp a marble. I chose to go with a marble in some gel polish I was trying out.

I’ve used three shades from the Dance Legend Gel Polish range. Let’s take a look..


My base colour is called Smoky Eyes, which is a ash toned neutral, which I just love.

I applied my first coat of Smoky Eyes over Dance Legend Gel Polish Base Coat and cured. I applied my second coat, and while it was still wet, dabbled on some dots using Self-Confident (brighter coral) and Bonjour (pale nude).

I then took a small nail art brush and dragged it through the wet gel polish creating a marble effect before curing for the final time. I then top coated the manicure.

I had a few problems with it, not working like it should, so my heart just wasn’t in this one as much as usual, which I am devastated about. I love the colour combinations though. What do you think?
If this is your first time, you can go back and check out our past link-ups here.

I’ll be popping up a HUGE review of the Dance Legend Gel Polish line next week, so if you’ve been curious about them, make sure you head back over to check that out!

Now to go and see what the other girls chose to do for their marble designs!!

    you’ve been so brave, a drag marble ! It’s a kind of nightmare technique for me, I only use it in “patch”, like that I don’t cry after the fifth ugly attempt ^^ personally I find your mani really beautiful, I love the color combo and the irregular pattern of your marble gives it an artistic side.

    Like Emily said, I had no idea looking at your pics that you had trouble, until you said so. Please have more faith in yourself lovely. I absolutely love this mani, it looks like a fire in muted tones with the flames flickering and dancing. Thank you for sharing. Dawnxx
