So today I tried water marbling for the first time :)
Alot of people were asking how its done so I decided to do a tutorial on it!
So lets get started!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Tissue paper
- A plastic or paper cup
- Room temperature water
- A wood stick or a chopstick
- 2 or 3 nail polishes
- Have a bit of nail polish remover handy incase you make mistakes :)
Colours I used:
opi purple with a purpose
Set up your work area and paint your nails a base colour i picked white.
Cover your fingers in tape to avoid the polish from getting on your fingers or stuck in your cuticles and under your nails.
You dont have to do this step but I think its easier and you make less of a mess.
When your done your fingers should look like this!
Now fill your cup with water and pick your colours
2 or 3 colours should be enough i picked a lavender and a dark purple.
Take your first colour and let the polish drip into the cup and keep repeating this step using all your colours.
The cup should then look like this.
Dont add to much because the polish in the cup will start to dry so you need to work fast!
Now take your stick and draw your design.
Always start from the outside.
Dip your fingers in.
I found it easier to do 2 fingers at a time.
Clean the left over polish up with your wood stick so the water will be clean for the next round.
When your finished your fingers will look something like this.
The polish drys straight away so you can remove the tape when your ready.
(I found it easier to cut the tape off.)
If any polish gets on your skin dont worry.
A bit of nail varnish remover on a cotton bud will clean it all up!
Now your all done :)
If this doesnt work for you your water might to be cold it needs to be room temperature.
Try leaving a bottle of water in a room for a few hours!
other colours I have tried :)
Hope this was helpful
