Tutorial: Marble Nails (Bag Dab / Saranwrap / Clingfilm)

This is a dry marble technique, it is very similar to the clingfilm / saran wrap method. I use a plastic carrier bag to make this effect, it has been dubbed as 'the bag dab' by a friend!

What Will I Need?
Two Different Polishes
Carrier / Plastic Bag
Top Coat
Clean Up Brush

First paint your base and allow it to dry.

Then paint the next colour on top, working one nail at a time. Then dab the carrier / plastic bag on the nail until you get the desired effect.

Yes this is a bit messy but worth the end effect, you can go subtle or contrasting with the two polishes you choose. Go on to the next nail until you have finished all nails. Go ahead and top coat the nails.

Then clean up the fingers and cuticle areas and you are done.

  1. I have used grocery bags for this technique, and in a pinch one time I used "popped" bubble wrap! Whatever works, right?
