Water Marble Nail Art Steps

Note: Make sure you have a couple of high quality polish bottles. If the polish has gone sticky at all, this will not work. New bottles of polish work the best.

  1. Apply a thin layer of base coat to the nails in order to provide proper protection.
  2. Apply one layer of color polish to nails and then after they dry apply a second coat.
  3. Tape off the nails in order to make cleaning easier at the end of the process.
  4. Fill a small cup up with room temperature water.
  5. Quickly drip one drop of nail polis into the water at a time. Do this quickly so the polish doesn’t dry before you can insert the nail into the water. The polish should spread out across the water. If it doesn’t do this, then you need to either change the temperature of the water or get better nail polish.
  6. Place nail into the water (nail down onto the design.)
  7. Leave the nail in the water for several seconds.
  8. Before you remove the nail from the water make sure you blow on the polish several times and then use a toothpick to remove the remaining nail polish that is on top of the water.
  9. Pull the nail out of the water.
  10. Remove the scotch tape.
  11. Use acetone and a q-tip to remove any nail polish that is on the skin around the nail.
  12. Apply a top coat to ensure your water marble nail art design lasts as long as possible.

    I love water marbling!
    I cannot seem to come up with one as good as my first successful attempt though.
    This was my first successful attempt, if interested.
