Photo Cred: Vanessa Granda

Shut the FRONT and BACK door. We are gracing you (no pun intended… you know, because my name is Gracie) with a marble nail DIY and a boozy Oreo dunkin’ cocktail. Although tooting our own horn is a bit vain, this Nail-n-‘Tail edition is so worth it. It’s even better than it looks.

1. Like always, be sure to prep your nails and apply base coat. Color all nails 2 coats of white or black.

Your base color will depend on which intensity you prefer. If you like a black marble effect, you will paint the base as white, vice versa.

2. Using the opposite color, place sporadic dots of color all over the nail.

3. Before the dots dry, use your brush to dab the opposite color all throughout the nail creating a swirly marble like design.
