In addition to tapping our own pro nail stylists and Pinterest for major mani inspo, we also frequent the essie looks and nail art page for top trends and DIY tutorials to share with you. This round, we came across a look featuring the new essie fall 2016 collection that uses a marbling technique you can easily do at home—although, prepare yourself for plenty of “Where do you get your nails done?”. Yeah, it’s that good.
