Alcohol Ink Marble

Hi everyone!  I've seen some really cool manis using these alcohol inks lately, so I snagged some over the weekend!

Alcohol Ink Nails

I started off with two coats of KBShimmer Eyes White Open, followed by one coat of SV.  The alcohol inks I used for this were Citrus, Sail Boat Blue, and Purple Twilight.  I put a few drops of Citrus on a plate, and tore off a small piece of a wedge sponge.  Holding the piece of sponge with tweezers, since the inks will stain skin, I picked up the ink and dabbed it onto the nail.

I repeated this step with each color, using a new piece of the sponge.  After I had the nail covered, I used another piece of the sponge and lightly dipped it in a bit of rubbing alcohol - using too much alcohol will bleed most of the colors out.  I lightly tapped the nail with it to bleed the colors just a bit.  I finished with one coat of SV.

I really love the end result.  I'm so excited to play around a little more with these for different effects!
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!
