More Marble Nails! | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | Nails | No Comments

Marble nails is a trend  we’ve noticed taking over Instagram every day! It just looks so classy yet simple. Today we have a variation of marble nail art that we would love to show, as well as the possibilities of art combinations you can do with marble art! Some of the art we have been experimenting involve a mixture of different nail art techniques!

One of the techniques we loved seeing on nails is adding a touch of gold to class it up! Gold flakes are the perfect last touch to add a bit of colour to your manicure. (They’re also super fun to add and watch dissolve onto the nail!). You can see how they look in photos 2 and 5! Another way to add gold or other colours onto your mani is by adding metallic striping tape! We used gold in both of the sets we show this, but marble nails also look amazing with other colour metallic foil striping tape- such as a baby pink or a teal-blue. This technique can be shown in photos 3 and 6.

One of our more popular requests for nail art would be black on white marble. The classic! In some of the photos below, we tried out using different colours and different “backdrop” colours to see how it looks. Photo #4 with white on a lighter pink, and photo #3 and 6 with white on pink- one with more opaque pink, and the other with a softer, more translucent pink.

As a little girl, which one of us didn’t love Ariel from the Little Mermaid? Answer? None of us. We all absolutely adored her. Her luscious garnet hair, and her beautifully shiny & scaly tail. So if you’re a lover of all things majestic and dreamlike, then you’ll find yourself in love with the nails we will be showcasing today! Today’s #nailinspo features a few of our favourite summer mermaid & unicorn nails! Complete with pastel scales, holo, and of course, and unicorn horns!

So what exactly makes a fairy tale fantasy well, a fantasy?  Several key factors, read below!:

♡1- Glitter. So. Much. Glitter! Not only does it make the perfect accent nail, but who doesn’t love glitter? Just one shade of glitter (our favourite is silver!), can add so much fun to a set! It is the perfect balance between getting a safe, neutral set of nails, and art-on-every-finger set! Just one simple colour glitter to completely jazz up your set! Whether it be ombre, sheer glitter, or a full opaque coat, whatever it is- we’ll take it!

♡2- Glass nails- Shattered nails became one of the top trends in Korean nail styles just recently. It is simple, yet so mesmerizing and captivating. You can add them to your entire nail, or just a few small detailed pieces to add subtle art. The iridescent reflection it creates completely satisfies our ‘Fairy Tale Fantasy’ Nail add-on check list!

♡3- Mermaid Scales- What is a set of little mermaid nails without the scales? Reflective, shiny, and the perfect last touch to really bring out your love for the sea!  Whether they are carefully drawn on, or created using nail art deco stickers, this is an accent nail to you will for shore love! ( ;)! )

♡4- Watercolour- Simple, yet so beautiful. With watercolour, you can picture yourself swimming through the deep sea with the mermaids and baby dolphins, or running through the colours of the wind with your unicorn! Watercolour effect can be created using an abundant of colours and mixing them into a dreamy palette. They are also so versatile as you can add designs or deco on top or create ombre watercolour! The possibilities are endless

♡5- Unicorn Horn- Okay, who has dreamed of having a pet unicorn when they were younger? Literally every little girl. With hard gel, we are able to sculpt out unicorn horn-like designs on your nail! Adding that extra touch and getting you  one step closer to petting that unicorn!

Marble Nail Trend | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | Nails, Prép Beauty Parlour | No Comments

Prép Logo

What’s Prép’s favourite Summer nail look? One word- M A R B L E! Solid, hard, granite marble! Inspired by the classiest of washroom and kitchen counters, the stone or water marble look is to die for! Okay, so why exactly are we so captured by the tile look? Several simple things.

It adds a touch of elegance and catches attention, without stealing the whole show. Having trouble deciding between 2 different shades of blush nude? We feel that- just use one as a base for the accent marble nail! There are literally so many things to love about marble nails, it looks cute whether it be on sculptured gel extensions (READ! Gel extensions vs Acrylics here!), or a even on simple gel manicure!

Marble sets look so cute with whatever colour you want! Turquoise? Yes! Sweet baby pink? Yes! Totally jazzes up a simple trip to the salon!
