Marble effect bright nails

Hello lovelies :) 

So here I am, back in the wonderful blogosphere, and happy to be back. 
I am excited to get blogging and share my love for all things fashion and beauty again. 

I thought I would start with these fab marble effect nails that I spotted on Makeup Savvy, so full credit to her on this nail tutorial!

This is a really easy way of achieving a marble effect, so read on to find out how I achieved it!

What you will need..

Nail polish remover
 I love Cutex Ultra Cleansing as it removes polish in one sweep!
Also have some cotton wool pads and buds to hand. 

Nail polishes
An array of around four nail polish colours, I found that adding pastels colours in worked really well for this effect. 

The secret ingredient
Cling film, I found it worked well to cut ten small pieces, one for each nail. 

Start by blobbing on your colours onto one nail, then take your piece of cling film, press lightly on top and dab around until the colours mix in to each other, then carefully peel off. 

You should start to see this effect on your nails, don't worry about it going over the nail onto your skin, you can clean that off after. 

Wait until completely dry to add a shiny clear top coat to seal the colour and finish them off. Then clean away around the edges and you're done. 

This was my first attempt and I'm really pleased with the results, it was easy and really fun to do. 
The trick with this one is patience to let your nails dry!

Hope you enjoyed
