Dry water marble!

There has been a lot of talk in two FB groups I belong to about this dry water marble tutorial, so I checked it out and decided to try my hand at it tonight.

Wayyy easier than I thought it would be!!!

Crappy cell phone picture again, I'm sorry! So this was right after I finished playing in the polish with a toothpick :)

The dark blue is China Glaze first mate, shimmery orange is Sinful Colors cloud 9, lighter blue is Dr.'s Remedy bold baby blue, and the bright orange is China Glaze papaya punch.

For all of my new readers, orange and blue are my school colors :) I am president of AGS (alpha gamma sigma), the honor society at my school this semester, and since our meetings are on Thursdays, I'm going to start doing school colors for them :) Last week I did this :)

So here is how it turned out, it was so easy! I just did a clear base coat, let it mostly dry applied the dry water marbling in pieces, used the edge of my other finger nails to get the excess off, topped it with SV, and cleaned it up with pure acetone and a nail art brush. I love how it turned out!

How do you think it turned out? Have you tried this method before?

Until next time! Happy painting!
Pin It!

  3. It turned out great! I may have to try this.

  5. It looks totally different on the plastic bag and on the nails....interesting!
