Marble Nails

  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! This post is out of the ordinary crochet talk, but I thought it was interesting enough to post here and tell you about it. I found this crackle nail polish as I was doing some last minute Christmas shopping and thought I'd give it a try. I was looking online to see how other crackled nails had turned out and came across this video for making marble nail designs. It's actually pretty easy to do. All you need is a cup of room temperature water, some nail polish, toothpicks or a pin, and a q-tip. The design is made on the surface of the water with the polish. You can see the video that I saw here, and there are many more tutorials and designs out there. Here is my first try at it, I think it came out really neat and I will probably try different colors sometime. I only had a few colors since I don't do my nails regularly, but after I did it I bought these tiny bottles of polish to try called Bon bons. Has anyone tried this technique before? It's new to me, but I'm sure it's not new. I really like how it looks.
