It’s time for another tutorial! Hope you are enjoying them! Have any requests? Please ask! This one was requested by my BFF, Heidi, because it wasn’t one of my designs she was at my house watching me do.
Sheesh, let me just say that it is a lot easier to water marble on your nails than a nail wheel!! I just didn’t want to take off my needle marble nails from yesterday to do it on my finger.
Here is a refresher of the water marble I did for the 31 Day Challenge:
Onto the tutorial:
The polishes I used:
OPI Alpine Snow, Wet n Wild Ink Well, Buy Me A Drink, and Ready to Pounce.
The tools you will need:
Something to collect the excess polish, something skinny to make the design on the water, and a cup or small bowl to do the marbling in.
Step 1) Paint your nails white.
Step 2) Fill your bowl with room temperature water. Then as quickly as you can, drop 3 alternating drops of each of your colors to make the concentric circles.
Step 3) Using your pin or small dotting tool, drag through from the outside to the inner circle from all directions to make it look like a flower.
Step 4) Dip your nail on one side of the center of the flower. You can place your nail in the very center if you want, but I was trying to get it close to my original design.
Step 5) While your nail is still under the water, use your other tool and “gather” up the rest of the polish on the surface of the water. Once it’s all clear again, remove your nail. It should look something like this. I didn’t go far enough to the side of the center(its hard to aim the nail wheel) so you can see the center of the flower on the nail. You get the idea though I hope!
Once it’s dried, add your topcoat. Don’t forget to tape around your nail or use vaseline to make clean up easier. You can see that in my original water marble tutorial.
What are your thoughts? I love seeing what designs I can come up with while water marbling and I hope you will try this one. Thanks for reading!
