The look

“I took inspiration from precious stones and jewel tones and blended the colours to create a textured and marbled effect,” said Jenny.

Step 1

“To begin, prepare your nails by shaping and buffing them to smooth the surface. Wipe each nail with a cotton pad soaked in remover to cleanse it, and then apply a layer of base coat for long-lasting colour.”

Step 2

“Apply two coats of Fashionista Enamel , £6.49 to the entire nail.”

Step 3

“Next, dab on random patches of Eclectic Enamel , £6.49.”

Step 4

“Whilst the enamel is still wet, dab a concealer brush, £5.99, saturated with nail varnish remover onto the nail to blend the two colours together.”

Step 5

“Tidy around each nail with a concealer brush dipped in remover. Once everything is touch-dry, apply a layer of top coat, wait 2 minutes and then sweep on a coat of Liquid Quick Dry (£6.49).”
