If you follow Ms. ME on Instagram, then you probably saw the marble nail look #ManiMonday June 29th. This isn’t a new trick but it’s seems to have gotten more attention since 2014. Here’s the how-to blog I came across years ago when I first heard of and tried the technique. While they use tape in the example (in fact most TV “experts” do the same) I prefer to use nail forms when I have them as it takes less time to apply then cutting countless pieces of tape. I also find that applying a thin base coat in one of the colors you are going to use in your marble pattern helps avoid any unsightly gaps around the edges of your nail if you happen to not dip your nail completely. What at-home DIY nail art techniques have captured your attention lately?
The aspiring artist has sold 2 of her drawings. Does this mean that she is aspiring no more? Maybe she thinks so because she refuses to join any art contests that have been recently proposed to her.
At any rate, going forward she will be personally posting and blogging about her artwork here. Stay tuned!
This was drawn by the artist for her cousin once removed who loves Betty Boop along with a sweet, personal note that’s been removed for this post. The recipient has an assortment of Betty Boop items (a jacket, earrings, purse, etc) but likely doesn’t have this watch. We’ll have to send her one to add to her collection.
