Toothpick Marble Effect

L-R: Cancun*, Blueberry Ice Cream, Huckleberry*
Toothpick marbling is super easy. I hadn't tried it before because for some reason I'd got it into my head that it was quite tricky. 

For this design I just painted a white base then blobbed on three polishes, all from Barry M - Cancun*, Blueberry Ice Cream and Huckleberry*. I then used a toothpick to mix the colours together, creating a marbled effect. You might need to use two coats of top coat, as the marbling doesn't leave a completely smooth finish.

In hindsight I should have used colours which contrasted each other more as they did end up merging together a bit more than I thought. 

This design was so quick and easy, definitely one to try if you love fun nails but aren't that confident at nail art.
