The marble manicure has become the French manicure's cooler cousin. The design, modeled after the glossy countertops and home decor we save on Pinterest, has taken on a life of its own when painted on nails.
You can go classic and opt for muted, nude colors that look good any time, anywhere. But the marbling technique also allows for a fun combination of colors. You can use just about any color scheme with the swirling and smudging technique to get a crystal effect. Take rose quartz nails, for example, which utilize pinks and nudes to mimic the love-attracting stone.

Now jade, the stone that encourages balance and harmony, is the marble effect that everyone is requesting again, and Rihanna is the latest celebrity to get on board. The singer flaunted a fresh set of nails done by London manicurist Jenny Longworth on Instagram Stories recently. The design used shades of ivory and seafoam green to mimic jade stone.
