Needle Drag | The Digital Dozen does Marble

Painted Fingertips | Fiery needle drag - the Digital Dozen does marble

Hi everyone!

It’s already day 4 of the Digital Dozen does marble! What a fun theme this has been. So far, I’ve shared a water marble, a drip marble, and a realistic stone marble look.

To get this look, I started with a base of Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Rent Boy. Once that was dry, I painted broad stripes of Rent Boy on the base and tip of a nail, with a stripe of Tip Top Gold Mine in the middle. Using a pin, I dragged the colours through and into each other to create a fiery marbled effect.

Doesn’t that look cool? I’ve been wanting to make some polish jewellery with a needle drag effect, but I haven’t figured out how to get a good drag on the glass surface. Any suggestions?

As I was writing up this post, I realised I unintentionally used my University’s colours in this nail art! How fun 🙂

Just one day left in the marble theme! I have something pretty different to share tomorrow. For now, take a look at some more marble nail art:
