Black & White Fan Brush Marble

Hello! I bought a fan brush the other day, finally. Here's the first thing I did with it!

Turns out the easiest way to achieve a marbled look is with a fan brush! I dipped half the brush in white acrylic paint, and half in black. Then I just swiped it onto clean, base-coated nails at a diagonal angle, overlapping the swipes a little to mix them into all the full range of greys you see here. The whole thing, both hands, took about two minutes!

Just to make it a little more interesting, I added a sparse coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear #510 Strobe Flash. A thin clear base with black and white hexes in all sizes, plus black bars. A great compliment to this look, don't you think?

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

No shade pics of this one. None of them came out very clearly, for some reason. I don't think it's needed with this one, though. No differences in shimmers or colour shifts to show off :)

I hope you liked this one, and if you've ever wanted an easy way to get a marbled look without water or much of a mess, give this a try! I can do a tutorial if anybody is interested... let me know in the comments! xoxo
