With the launch of the Venice collection, OPI created a set of instructional videos on their youtube channel for nail art using polishes from the collection. The one that particularly caught my eye was their Stone Marble tutorial (watch it here). I thought it was an ingenious method for creating the layered marbling effect and would highly recommend the tutorial. I Cannoli Wear OPI is a great light grey creme on the thinner side, making it perfect for layering over black sponging. 

I created the black abstract lines with this fine tipped nail art brush from the Born Pretty Store. The precision on this brush was great and it was stiff enough not to fan out when pressing down on the nail. The brush is supported by a rounded pink handle with pink crystals suspended inside the barrel. I also really liked how the length of the handle helped to stabilize my hand as I was drawing the lines.
