Water Marble Designs is a fun way to decorate your nails, although it can be a bit messy))

Here is How To Do It:

First, you need to prepare your nails as usual and apply a base coat. Have  cotton balls and nail polish remover ready. It is important to have everything ready as you need to do everything fast. Nail polish hardens quickly on the water surface so as part of your preperation be sure to have all the bottles you are planning to use open and ready to go.

You will need a bowl (i would recommend to use plastic one, so you can just throw it away after using it, but you can use glass one if you wish).

Fill your bowl with warm water (2/3 full). Add the colours of your choice by placing each drop gently onto the surface of the water. It is important to use a good quality polish, as poorer quality polishes won’t result in the desired effect.

Next use a pin or needle to create the unique design, dragging it from one edge to the other to create.

Dip your nail or tip into the water and the nail polish will stick to your nail.
But it will also stick to your skin which sometimes may be hard to remove so you could put some vaseline on the skin so it wont stick too much.

Remove the excess nail polish while the tip or nail is submerged. This is key to the success of this type of marbling.

Remove polish from the surrounding skin using a cotton bud dipped in nail polish remover.
Apply a top coat.

      You should try again, it does work and it is very easy!

      Did you use warm water? May be you should try different polishes. I don’t know if it works with any brands but I used cheap polishes (I think it was Femme or something like that) and it worked fine.

    That is pretty cool. I actually like that. But how long did it take you before you got really good at it? And what of good quality polish should we use?

      You should try it, it is easy. After a couple of times you will be good at it. I would not recommend to use expensive (professional) polishes as you use quite a lot. I tried it with cheap polishes and it worked fine (I think it was Femme).

      Hope it helps.

      Enjoy!

      It can be tricky and messy especially when you are doing it for the first time, but it does work if you get it right.

      It can also depend on what polish you use as it may not work with every polish.

      Use warm water, apply some cream on your skin around the nail and you need to be quick and sometimes try it several times to get good at it.

      Hope it helps.

      Hi, yes you should use warm water for best results and it can be quit tricky so I would advice you to try different polishes, it doesn’t have to be expensive, good quality ones but it might not work with all polishes. I tried to do this with China Glaze and it worked.
      Hope it helps.
