“I took inspiration from precious stones and jewel tones and blended the colours to create a textured and marbled effect,” said Jenny.
“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.”
“Apply two coats of Fashionista Enamel , £6.49 to the entire nail.”
“Next, dab on random patches of Eclectic Enamel , £6.49.”
“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.”
“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).”
