Molten Metals


So they other day on the The Daily Nail: REVIEWS, I posted swatches and reviews of the new Milani Liquid Metal Intense Color Collection, which are AMAZING, so I thought I'd give marbling with them a whirl. I'm seriously bummed that I can't capture the gorgeousness of this marble on camera, it's like jewels melted on my nails with their sparkly goodness. If you have the polishes, I suggest you try marbling with them, they're a bit tough to marble with, but the jewel-toned swirls they produce are worth the swearing and frustration they caused.


I used Milani Metal Gear as a base, then used Milani Molten Rock, Milani Hot Metal, and Milani Melt Down to marble over it. Topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Also, I keep forgetting to mention that I answered all the questions on the 'Thank You For Being A Friend' post the other day, my reply to everyone is in the comments. :)

    @Angie: Whenever I do it I wrap my nails in tape - peels right off, no mess at all!

  7. Those look amazing!! Though I've always wondered how you marbled..with your nails. Doesn't the varnish dry too fast? And aren't fingers too big to have marbles roll around them? (i'm not saying you have big fingers.. ;-;)

  11. @annis the polish does dry fast so you have to work quickly. i suggest looking up tutorials on youtube. they'll show you how it's done.
