Melting Clocks

This nail art is what would occur if Salivador Dali had a nightmare. I tried for this melting clock manicure…and I ended up with an awful disaster. I was not looking at my inspiration picture closely enough, and spent too long trying to determine how she made her marble background (I still have no idea and I REALLY want to know, they are so perfect! Share your secrets!). The end result is comedically horrible.

Colors:
~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ Neon green: KBShimmer – Lime All Right
~ Teal: Zoya – Cecilia
~ Teal gliter: LA Girl – Teal Dimension
~ Gold glitter: Ethereal – Rainforest

If anyone knows how this artist (or any others like her) create such smooth beautiful marble nails, let me know! Clearly my attempts at recreation are cringe-worthy. Maybe next time.

  1. Maybe a drip marble with polishes applied each one nearly all over the previous one, and then very few tilting moves ?

    • But then the polish would be so thick….I think she might use 100% gel polish which I’m sure has different spreading and drying characteristics. Her’s just looks so excellent!
