Water marble nails are a nail art technique implicating dropping nail lacquers into crystal clear water and generating a pattern on the water surface, the pattern conceived is then deported to the nails.
This marbling technique in nail art is done by adding nail polish into a bowl of water and slightly wriggling the colors around so that when you drench your fingers in it, you end up with a very classy-looking marble effect on your nails!
It’s much easier than it sounds.
Firstly, paint your nails with a clear base coat. Spray with fast-drying spray if you want.
Then, put sticky tape around your skin and cuticles. Be sure that the tape dosent touch the nail. If the tape is covering the nail, it will ruin the effect, because some parts will be white.
The next step is to add the nail varnish to the cup. Put some nail varnish on the brush. Hold it 1 cm above the center of the water's edge.
Gently tap the handle of the brush until the varnish drips into the water. Add a second color in the same way into the true middle of fat color. Carry on the pattern in this way.
Using a tooth pick, stir the clear water surrounding the circle of nail varnish. Thus will make the nail varnish ring expand. Make sure the toothpick DOES NOT TOUCH the nail varnish itself, only the clear water.
Place the toothpick on the water, from about the 3rd ring out. Drag the toothpick inwards, towards the centre of the nail varnish. Continue in this way in order to make a flower pattern.
Dip your finger on the water (where the nail varnish pattern is) at a 45 degree angle.
Finally, spray the nail with some quick-dry spray, or leave to dry. Carefully peel off the tape from your finger. Start with the piece that you put down last.
When the nail is dry, paint over it with a clear top coat. Repeat on all other nails.
And you're done! Hope you found this instruction useful!
