All you’ll need are basic manicure tools, a few gel polishes and an LED/UV lamp. Follow the detailed instructions below, and then watch the video we’ve shared to get even more insight into the process!
- To start with, prepare your nails for a manicure. You can see our article on dry manicure, where it is described in detail how to take care of your nails and cuticles without soaking your hands in water.
- After the initial preparation, apply a base coat and dry your nails under a LED/UV lamp.
- Apply your chosen gel color to cover the entire nail plate and also let it dry under the lamp.
- Cover your nails with a second coat of the same color, but don’t dry it this time.
- While the polish is still wet, use a thin brush to create marble-like patterns. It’s a good idea to use a contrasting color. To achieve an even more realistic effect, you can add lighter and darker lines.
- Once you are done with the design, dry your nails.
- Finish with a top coat and apply a softening oil to protect the skin from drying out after the treatment.

In spring, we want to add more color to our look to harmonize with the awakening nature and the many flowers we have the opportunity to admire during the season. That’s why a pink marble manicure combined with a drawing of a rose on one of the fingers is a great idea if you want to refresh your style and enjoy a modern manicure that brings a good mood.
