Grey marble nails

I can always tell how much I loved a certain set of nail art by how many photos I took. Different hand poses, different lighting, close-up photos, lots of very slightly different angles to catch every detail. So I definitely loved these grey marble nails (for which I made my first nail art tutorial ever), but it makes it really hard to pick out just a couple photos to make it into a blog post.

Marble is a lot different from nail art I've done in the past that needs a lot of precision to look just right. It's especially great for de-stressing, because I'm super focused but not stressing out too much about how it doesn't look like my reference photo, not proportioned right, etc etc

With marble nails I can sorta just happily doodle along. I don't even need to draw straight lines -- it's actually very satisfying to draw a freeform jagged vein.

My first post of 2019 (and in over half a year) and I'm back in a big way - with my first-ever nail art tutorial! I made the quick pictorial above but I think some steps could use extra explaining, so I have a detailed step by step below.
