A Colorful Water Marble Nail Art For The Summer
One of the newest trends in nail art today is the water marble nail art. It’s a colorful combination of nail polishes that looks like it was done by a nail expert. However, this is very easy to do and it’s completely doable at home. This season, you can experiment with various color combinations that will perfectly match your summer outfits. Find out how to create this easy water marble nail art below.
What You’ll Need for this Water Marble Nail Art:
- O-P-I Natural Nail Base Coat
- Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear White Nail Polish
- Kiesque Liquid Palisade Easy-Peel Polish Barrier
- O-P-I Nail Lacquer Nail Polish – assorted colors
- Dotting Tool
- Nail Polish Remover
- Essie Top Coat
- Glass of room temperature water
- Cotton swab
Step 1: Apply Your Base Coat
Always apply your base coat first. This will help you protect your natural nails from staining. Moreover, it provides a clear layer between your nails and the pigment of the nail polish.
Step 2: Apply Your Base Color
Apply two coats of your base color. White is preferred because it serves as a canvass to make sure your colors are bright and opaque.
Step 3: Apply Liquid Latex
Apply the Kiesque Liquid Palisade Easy-Peel Polish Barrier all around your finger to help protect the skin. If you don’t have this, you can use vaseline or tape. However, make sure you don’t apply them over the nail polish because this will ruin your design.
Step 4: Get A Container With Room Temperature Water
Get a small container with room temperature filtered water. Don’t use a large basin because the nail polish might spread too quickly. Don’t use unfiltered water because it contains minerals that can prevent the nail polish from spreading on the water.
Step 5: Drop Each Color Of Nail Polish Into The Water
Make sure you use neon and bright colors to feel the summer vibe on your nails.
With a cup of room temperature water, place one drop of each color of nail polish into the water. If you want this to be more opaque, you can drop the same color of nail polish in a row. Make sure you drop it just above the surface because holding the nail polish from too high will make it sink in the bottom.
Step 6: Create Your Water Marble Nail Art Pattern
You can now create your water marble nail art pattern. With a dotting tool, you can drag each side out. Make sure you wipe the dotting tool between each drag so the colors won’t mix. Then drag the water marble up and down across the cup.
Step 7: Dip Your Finger
Quickly dip your finger into the water, position where you want it. Remember to dip your finger on a 45-degree angle to prevent water bubbles from appearing on your nail. Blow gently to dry the polish and with a cotton swab, clean the remaining polish on the water.
Step 8: Clean The Surrounding Skin
Remove the liquid latex around the nail. Make sure to use a nail polish remover to clean the skin after.
Step 9: Top Coat
Apply a protective top coat on your nail to make it last longer. It will also add a beautiful shine on your design.
And you’re all done!
