The weather this weekend only allowed for an hour of sun time before the clouds moved in Saturday and stayed through a rainy Sunday. All this time indoors lead me to do a couple things I've been wanting to do for a while like start a Facebook page (which you can 'Like' here) and this DIY marble manicure I saw on Refinery 29. Unfortunately I was only able to wear it for a couple days before heading back to The Cube because I would imagine pink/yellow/green swirled nails infringe upon the business casual dress code...unless you work for Lisa Frank, that is. If nothing else, it makes for a fun rainy day activity.
- Cup of warm water (it will get ruined so I recommend plastic)
- White nail polish like Essie's 'Marshmallow'
- Three other colors of nail polish of your choosing.
I used Essie's 'Mint Candy Apple,' American Apparel's 'Butter' and OPI's 'I'm India Mood'
- Scotch tape
Step 2: Start dropping alternating droplets of nail polish in the middle of the water. It is important that the water is warm so the colors can spread. I also found that it helps to start with your most vibrant polish, in this case the pink, so it's easier to see the first circle.* in the middle of polish 'bullseye'. This gets tricky because you have to move quickly before the polish starts drying/clumping (hence no photo of this stage).
