Drag Marbled Leaves

I haven't done drag or dry marbling for ages and didn't really even remember that it was one possibility. But after seeing this gorgeous design by Sveta Sanders, I just had to do a drag marble look myself.

I used first one coat of Essie Picked Perfect on each nails. Then I did another coat with the same Essie polish and immediately applued some Zoya Giovanna while the Essie was also still wet. Then I just used a tooth pick to drag the polishes on my nails.


My design isn't really as neat as Sveta's but I still really liked the look. I'm quite sure though that I should figure out some other drag marbling tool that tooth picks as they seem to be a bit too wide for this. I haven't really paid too much attention to those drag marbling/water marbling tools before since I've felt like you can use pretty much anything for this purpose, but now I think I'm going to need to reconsider.


Anyhow, like I said, I really liked this leafy design. I think it's quite fun look and Picked Perfect and Giovanna were really a perfect pair for this. Drag marbling is quite easy to do, I don't really know why I haven't done it more often.
