Hey guys! I am re-doing my tutorial page, because I set it up wrong the first time, so I copied and pasted this water marble tutorial that way I'd have a link to link back to it ;)
You will need polish colors of your choice (China Glaze colors work great), a cup (paper or plastic is easy because you can toss it later!) and a wooden stick of some sort (I use a manicure stick)
You can see my post here, done with these colors (the mani I had on in the pictures).
You're then going to put one drop at a time of polish right on top of the water, it should spread out fairly quickly. Repeat with as many layers of the colors you are looking for.
Once you are done with your drops, use your manicure stick to gently make designs in the polish however you see fit.
Now it's time to dip your nails in. Some people like to put scotch tape all around their fingers to be able to clean up easier, putting vasoline all around your fingers works too, then you are able to just wipe it away, or if you don't feel like doing either you can do an extensive clean up like I normally do lol. You will want to have your fingers as flat as possible when putting them against the polish, once they hit the polish, dip your fingers into the water.
While your fingers are still in the water, use the manicure stick to pick up all the surrounding polish still in the water. Try and keep your fingers submerged in the water the whole time.
Once you have cleaned up the rest of the polish from the water pull your fingers out like you were in a dive, but with your hands :P and tada!!! You have your water marble, now you add a top coat, do your clean up and you're ready to go!
What do you guys think? Have you had luck with your water marbles?
Until next time! Happy painting!
