· Get a marbled nail look by dabbing painted nails with plastic wrap dipped in a different color. You will need two different colors. Paint your nails your base coat color and let it dry completely. Working with one nail at a time, apply a coat of the second polish over one nail. Grab a piece of plastic wrap and Immediately blot the top of your nail once or twice with a crumpled piece of plastic wrap while the polish is still wet. When the sticky wrap touches the wet polish, it will pull up a bit of the color, creating a marbled effect with the base color underneath. If you pull up too much of the wet polish, just add a little more color and dab at it with plastic wrap again. Continue until you've completed each nail. If you end up with some polish smudges outside the lines, dip a Q-tip or a small brush in nail polish remover to clean up around the edges. The surface of your nails may be a bit bumpy, so finish your marbled mani with one or two layers of top coat to achieve a smooth and shiny surface.

· Cover seeds that you've started with plastic wrap to keep moisture levels constant.
