Tammy Taylor "Take Me To The Big City" with Marbling Design

July 18, 2014  | Video

Tammy Taylor demonstrates the "Take Me to the Big City" nail design using a marbling technique, or what she calls an "organized chaos technique."

"What I like about this technique is every nail turns out unique so no two nails are alike. A great way to incorporate this design into your nails is, use only one of the colors as the main color on eight nails, either for the whole nail or just the free-edge and then create two accent nails using this main color and then adding two to five more colors for marbling," Taylor says.
