How amazing is this manicure? Knew I had to try it out when I laid my eyes on it. Here's how to achieve it!

You'll need three nail polishes: an opaque nude color, a super-dark hue and a clear topcoat.

1. Start by painting nails with the pale hue, and let dry completely.
2. Next, paint a very thick layer of clear topcoat over the nude color.
3. While the topcoat is still wet (and working one nail at a time) use short strokes
and a heavily-loaded brush to dab the dark color just along the tip of the nail.
It's all about creating a painterly effect here, so be sure to lay it on thick and
don't worry about being too precise; the two polishes should run together to
create a marbled effect.

4. Let nails dry completely, clean up any mistakes around the nail with nail polish remover,
and finish with another layer of clear topcoat.
