The most arthritis friendly nail art design is the one I don’t even paint on my nails, right?

There is a relatively new technique called “drip marbling” which is very similar to acrylic paint marbling.

I create a design on a flat plastic surface. Once it dries, I cut it into smaller pieces and apply them to my nails as decals. It a very simple nail art technique but yields a beautiful result. I showcase water decals and no-water marbles on my blog all the time so I bit the time bullet and tried out this new to me style.

Fire Drip MarbleThis is exactly what I was going for: an irregular marble without any muddiness. It kind of reminds me of lava…


Fire Drip Marble side viewI  love the end result but these decals are thick which is to be expected when using so much polish.
