My Sponge-Marbled Mani

Hello, peeps!

my mani

Today I have my first manicure topic post to show you! I call it the “sponge-marble” mani. I will have a tutorial on it soon. I used a makeup sponge and these colors:

My Nail Polish Colors

I’m not 100% sure what the names of these colors are, because they weren’t labeled, but I think the blue is In A Flash, the purple is Nuclear Energy, and the teal one is either Radiation or Palm Tree. The flash sort of changes the colors a bit; the blue is darker than it looks, and the teal has a hint more green than it shows in the picture. If you’re wondering what the lumpy thing in the background is, it’s just a pillow; I took the picture on my bed. So, to achieve the look I did below, I painted stripes on my nails, then I dabbed it lightly with one corner of my sponge while it was still wet.

Sorry the pictures were blurry. My arm wasn’t feeling its best today, so it was trembling a lot. The flash sort of washes out the teal and purple and makes the blue brighter. However, without flash, the nail polish looks much duller. It’s really not that plain-looking.

Hope you like it! I promise you more manis with hopefully better pictures in the future!

Have a nice day!
