If you’re a fan of the marble trend, then prepare to meet your next mani obsession: rose quartz nail art. A flirty, more feminine take on the traditionally black-and-white style, rose quartz nail art is perfect for nude nail devotees and art aficionados alike. Read on to scope out our favorite takes on the trend, along with some easy tips for mastering the technique.
To achieve the nearly-nude look, start with a pale pink base, then use a milky white polish or gel and an ultra-fine striping brush to paint imperfect, crystal-like veins. For added depth, opt for white shades with different opacities.
The pink base color makes all the difference. Whether you opt for a sheer, skin-tone shade or a pastel rose hue, the design can be tailored to your mood.
Play around with another huge trend at the moment: cuticle couture. After painting the rose quartz design, paint an ultra-thin line of gold glitter around the cuticle for a touch of glam.
Although the design can be created with lacquer, gel is the ideal medium for achieving that seamless, jelly-like look.
The best part about this trend? It looks good on every nail shape and length. Sport the design on all 10 fingers for a modern, feminine look, or mix it up with different types of stone designs for an edgier mani.
