Nail Polish Water Marbling, Summer Edition


Welcome to my first post of Creative Nail Week! This week, all posts will be nail polish related: you can expect fun tutorials, polish swatches and tips and tricks. My nail polish tutorials that I do here on the blog tend to be pretty popular (along with a guest post that I did), so I thought a whole week of these posts would be fun!

 
To create a look similar to the one above, you will need:
  • A disposable cup, filled with water
  • Tape
  • A toothpick, or something similar
  • 3-5 nail polish colors (or use black and white!)
  • Nail polish remover 


    Colors used: (from outer edge to center) OPI Charged Up Cherry, OPI Flit a Bit, China Glaze For Audrey


    Once you have a design you like (don't worry about getting super technical), carefully dip/submerge your finger into the polish design. If excess polish starts to come up as you remove your finger, gently use the toothpick to "shave" off the excess.


    A few tips:
    • If you don't want to spend hours removing excess polish, tape down to your knuckle. Also, try not to dip your finger in at the center of the cup; try the edge. 
    • Tape as close as possible to your cuticle!
    • Make sure your cuticles are clean, and you have no hangnails 
    • Use q-tips to remove excess polish
     Happy Marbling!
