What’s not to love about marble nails? They are the perfect mix of classic and trendy, and they never go out of style. If you’re looking for some ideas on how to create the perfect marble nail look, I’ve got something to suit.
Whether you want to try this style yourself (it can be easier than you might think) or you’re looking for some inspiration to show your local nail tech, I’ve covered a lot of different variations for every taste. From the sleek and understated for the office to the bright and fun for a night out.
Starting out with this abstract white marble look on almond nails.
Or what about this dreamy marble style?
If the pink and purple marble sections weren’t enough for you, how about some shimmering gold outlines?
I’m really liking this kind of marble Ombre nail style. A lot of these don’t cover the entire nail and I think it really works like this.
A more subtle take with just a single white and black marble nail. You could do different variations with the other fingers if you wanted to.
You can see all the cool dimensions in the middle finger with this hand-painted set.
I just love everything about these nails!✨ The mix of French tips with part marble nail art is a great combo.
Gold foil nail stamps.
A little bit of gold and blue flecks at the cuticle but (you might need to look closely) I like this suble marble style on the middle two fingers.
✨Black & white marble design 😍✨
Rosemary & Thyme sage green nails with this cute little green marble ring finger.
A real combination in this set here but I really like the colorway of the acrylic marble nail.
Obsessed with these dreamy marbles using ‘Daisy, June & Gilly’ from @the_gelbottle_inc 💗🌸✨
Or, sticking with the pink vibe, how about this more subtle variation? If you like this you really should see our swirl nail designs.
Mocha marble ☕️🤎 Something subtle like these set are a good middle-ground of a unique style that you’d still get away with at the office.
Again, a bit of a mixed set but the colorway of that marble is fantastic.
Soft gel aqua colored nails with a light white marble vibe.
You can always change the colorway for these designs based on preference but I’m really liking this red and black style.
There are just so many different takes on the look. This set has some simple white french tips and blue flowery patterns for good measure.
Another take with the dark blue and specks of gold.
Emerald gel with gold foil
Weirdly this set might match my kitchen countertop. Here I was thinking it was pretty unique.
Your might need to zoom in a little to see the subtle marble to these chrome acrylics. The white diagonal stripe really sets them apart.
Maybe one of the more traditional marble nails we’ve seen so far. Only the middle two nails are done, I’d be keen to see this with the same white background on the outer fingers too.
Some purple marble nails giving that abstract galaxy style.
Now, this is sure to get some attention.
A heart vibe valentines marble nail set. I love a little asymmetry to my nails so this just speaks to me.
There is always room for a pink marble mani.
A more minimalist take on the pink style. A single nail in a lighter shade with some even lighter marble effect. Sleek and stylish. I need this in my life.
Longer glossy acrlics with this full marble style.
A darker take on the look. I’m really liking the black and gold colorway.
Another more traditional version.
I like the little hint of gold to set this out. Don’t miss the light blue marble on the middle two fingers.
Oh! These are just too cute.
I don’t normally use press-ons that haven’t been fixed but I couldn’t not include this for inspiration. Such a nice purple.
Or these gels go even darker. Getting a very mystic vibe from this set.
Is it just me or is anyone getting a wine nail vibe from this set? Just me? Maybe it’s just that time.
Oh now, these are my favorite so far. Again, some of these designs are subtle you might want to zoom in a bit but that isn’t just a simple black polish.
Rose Quartz inspired nails. Fantastic idea and some rhinestones for good measure.
Another black and white take with some light gold charms.
Handpainted blue swirls.
Another take this black and white style.
