Today I’m hopping on a super popular nail art trend that I’m a little late to… rose quartz nails!
I’ve admired people’s rose quartz nails on Instagram for months now, but I’ve been hesitant to try them since I have had trouble with marbled nails in the past. I’m never 100% happy with how my marble nails turn out, and I feel like this look is very similar so I wasn’t sure if I would like my rendition.
I have to admit, I’m still not thrilled with how these turned out but I still wanted to share them with you all. I hope you all like them more than I do!
To create the milky pink base of this nail art, I used Essie “Sheer Fantasy”, which is one of their gel couture polishes. Highly recommend this line! The gel couture polishes are super shiny, easy to apply, and long lasting.
This one was much more sheer than I expected, but it builds up to a nice nude pink after a few coats. I think it ended up working well for this look.
After that sheer pink base, the process to create this look is pretty easy. I just used a white nail polish and my OPI Nail Lacquer Thinner to create a sheer, watery white polish. With a super thin brush, I painted random lines across my nail and sandwiched them between layers of the pink polish.
After a few layers, I got to a rose quartz/marble-y look that I was relatively happy with!
