Jade Stone Marble Nails

jade stone marble nails by @unitedinbeauty
Welcome to 2015 everyone! Looks like we all made it, LOL! I've been feeling super inspired by jewelry lately, and I have this gorgeous Jade ring that has just been screaming out for me to recreate on my nails. All in all, I'd say that this is a pretty close match to a real jade stone!
- Polishes  Used -
  • Base Color: Gilty Girl - Jinx
  • Marble Effect: Zoya - Dove and China Glaze - Four Leaf Clover     
- Extras - 
  • Clear Plastic Cling Wrap
Step 1: Begin by applying 2 coats of Jinx by Gilty Girl and allow to dry completely. 
Step 2: Once dry, take a small bunched up piece of clear plastic cling wrap and dip it in a small amount of Zoya Dove. Dab the excess on a napkin, then use a very light hand to dab the polish on to your nails. 
Step 3: Allow the first layer to dry, then repeat the cling wrap process, this time using China Glaze Four Leaf Clover. 
Step 4: Once you are happy with the look of your jade stone marbled nails, apply a coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat to mesh the colors together and seal the look.

I'm really into the look of stone nails right now. I might have to try turquoise nails soon, but man that spotted water marble sure is intimidating!

And there you have it! If you are inspired by or recreate this look, I'd love to see it! Use hashtag #HeyUnitedinBeauty on Instagram or send me a tweet on Twitter!
