Marble nails have been around for a while now, but we still love them because they’re so classic, chic, and easy to do.
Marble nails became so popular when everyone started to get the classic white marble nail design. After this nail idea became a trend, it seemed like everyone wanted to get marble nails, and the trend just grew from there.
However, if you have been following the trend since the beginning, the classic white marble nail look may not be what you want to rock anymore. Instead, you may want to switch things up and try a new take on marble nails.
For example, one easy way to switch up your marble nail looks is to go for a different color. I am sure you love the white marble look, but adding a different color to your nails gives the look an entirely different vibe.
One other great way that you can change up your marble nail look is by incorporating some different nail trends into your designs. For example, a marble accent nail is a great idea for a hint of the trend. And marble ombre nails are another unexpected take on the look.
Now, if this sounds exciting to you, this post will show you 15 different marble nail designs that aren’t your typical black and white. Read on to check them out!
