Follow on Bloglovin
Hello Lovely Ladies,
Today I am super-duper excited to share this water-marble look. This is for StyleThoseNailsChallenges a face book group where we are having a fun summer challenge. Wanna Join ? Click HERE.

Today's prompt is Welcome Back Summer. When I thought of that all bright colors came to my mind specially yellow. Another reason I did this look coz my left nails (yes yes those pointy claw nails !!) They broke boohoo!! and I had nubs left so I gave some relaxation to my left hand and tried water marbling on my right. I am so pleased the way it turned out. I also managed to click step by step tutorial for this water marble. So why wait? READ ON >>

I recently bought some bright polishes called Top Lady Nail Polish from a local beauty supply store in Qatar. It's no fancy brand and I picked them as I didn't have those bright colors, but I was so amazed to see their ability to spread in water and create water marble. So I am going to bring more now ..... I am budget nail-polish collector so it just suits me. And if anyone from Doha reading it, I will let you know the shop name so PM on facebook if you are interested.

 Let's get on to Tutorial now >>


I started with making bulls eye with red blue and yellow colors. Water is filtered- room temperature and taken in a disposable glass.








When I got enough rings I started dragging from outer rings with a toothpick and dragged all rings from 4 corners towards center. Looks like clover leaf.









Then I dragged 4 more times from outer side towards center and thus made a flower shape.









Here you can see my blue ring got messed up in center so I decided to remove it. I just dipped my toothpick in center until I got clean pattern.









Since I wanted to make some wild tropical kind of flower I dragged each petal of flower formed from center to outer corner and thus got this pattern.








Now I dipped my 3 fingers together to get the various patterns on my nails. Take out nails slowly and clean surface of water before you pull out your fingers out of water. Use a toothpick or cotton bud to clean up the water surface. Remove the tape and taadaa  a beautiful pattern is there....

Repeat the process for other nails. And yes my blue turned green lol as I had used yellow as base :P


Now Some Tips !!

* Always tape your fingers leaving nails (of-course!) so you don't have to clean up A LOT.
**  Wipe your tool like toothpick or needle after every stroke to get clean pattern.
*** Don't forget to Top coat your design.
**** Don't Panic and be patient. You will be able to do it - Keep practicing ! :D
