Today's post is a bit different than any other post I have done, it's a video tutorial on how I do my water marble manicures. I hope that you will find this video helpful :)
So let's get into how I do my water marble by watching this video. I will also add some tips below the video that I may not have covered in it.
Instead of using tape you can put Vaseline around your fingers and all you have to do is wipe the Vaseline away with a tissue or cotton ball and any polish that may have gotten on it will wipe right away. I do not use the Vaseline method because I feel it is too messy.
Not all polishes will work for a water marble, some polishes will not spread out across the water. Once you find a polish that works well make a note of it so you will know the ones that will work for sure.
Water marbling for me was a lot of trial and error, the first time I did it I thought it looked horrible. The more you do it the better you will get, so don't give up :)
Allow your polish to dry fully before you put on your top coat or else your design may smear.
It is a messy and tedious process, but so worth it. It usually takes me about an hour to do a water marble on myself.
Sometimes when you go to draw you lines with the toothpick all the polish may stick to the toothpick and mess up the work you had done, if this happens just finish getting the polish out of the cup and start again.
I have found that tap water does not work well for me when doing marbles, so I stick to bottled water.
Sometimes I will also paint my nails one of the colors that I am using before I start my marble, but not always. I feel like this is a personal choice depending on who you ask :)
Most importantly, just have fun with it!
I hope that this was helpful and if you have never done a marble before and decide to try one after watching this I would love to see it! You can post a link to it in the comments, email it to me or post it on my Facebook page. If you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments too, and I'll do my best to answer them the best I can.
