Hello, readers! Let’s talk about watermarbling! Have you tried it? Is it too hard? Is it too daunting to collect the supplies needed? This may be the right product for you! Marbleous Nails is an all-in-one watermarbling kit designed by a 13 year old named Veronica. She is too cute and I think she’s come up with a genius idea for nail art lovers!
The kit comes in this cute box:
Inside the That’s Cray kit I was sent:
Included in the kit:
Marbling cup with cover, roll of tape, qtips for clean up, toothpick for swirling and making the designs, base coat, 3 polish colors to marble with, top coat, and a cute freebie(mine was this bouncy ball that my kids were very excited about)! (Not pictured: the instruction booklet).
You pretty much just need to add water. Room temperature water in fact.
The instruction booklet is very helpful!
Here is my experience with the Marbleous Nails kit:
Step 1) Apply the base coat and let dry.
Step 2) Apply one of the colors as a base color and let dry. I like to go with the lightest color or a white base when watermarbling to keep the colors bright.
Step 3) Tape around the nails and cuticles.
Step 4) Put drops of polish one at a time in the center of the water cup. They should spread out and make concentric circles of color. I like to do between 8-10 drops of color. Have all of your bottles open and do this quickly right after another. You will want to make the design before the polish has started to dry.
Step 5) Take the toothpick and make a design in the polish. I chose to do 4 swipes from the center outward to the edge of the cup, and then 4 swipes from the edge of the cup inward to the center (in between the outward swipes) to create this design.
I then dip my nail in the part of the design that I want and keep it under the surface of the water while I used another toothpick to swirl and grab the rest of the surface polish so pulling the finger out won’t ruin the design already on the nail.
Step 6) I pulled my nail out of the water and it looked like this.
After I repeated the steps again for each nail, this is what it looked like. See why the tape is helpful??
After I pulled the tape off of each finger carefully, I’m only left with this much to clean up. That’s where the qtips came in and my own polish remover. I also used my clean up brush and remover to get closer than the qtips.
And the finished result below. I added top coat before this picture. I do want to say, that the top coat included has the potential to smear your design if you don’t apply carefully. I got a bit of drag on my thumb so make sure you have a big bead of topcoat on the brush and don’t let the brush touch the nail surface.
So what do you think of this kit? Is it something for you? I think it’s perfect for beginning water marblers!
