The Lovely people from Born Pretty Store have sent me a marbling comb to play with!
After a few attempts to get it to work, this is what I came up with!
It’s so swirly and green! Perfect for Spring! 😀
This is the comb and you can find it right here Born Pretty Comb

The polishes I used for this are
- China Glaze – Near Dark
- Illamasqua – Radium
- Revlon – Topaz
- Sally Hansen – Grass Slipper
- Illamasqua – Omen
- Color Club – New Bohemian
I started out by using stripes of polish on my mat, but it really didn’t work well, the polish kept bunching up, I realized this was happening because I wasn’t being fast enough and I wasn’t using enough polish
So to get this to marble nicely I had to use a huge amount of polish! The bottle of Near Dark was practically full when I started!
Instead of painting stripes I painted A big rectangle of the darkest polish then dripped the other colours onto it, and then used the comb to make the swirly patterns!
This took such a long time to dry! Around 8 hours!
Then all I had to do was to carefully remove it from my mat, which was slightly more challenging than I was expecting, I think that because the edges where so jagged and uneven thickness it kept tearing
But because the decal was so huge I had more than enough to cut to size!
I don’t know if I’ll be using the comb often just because of the amount of polish I had to use to get it to work, But when I had figured out how to get great results from it, the comb really is a product that’s really fun to use!
