Step 1. Basic
Always apply a base coat to protect your nails before painting them with a clear glittered nail polish.
Tip: If you find it difficult to place the glitter onto your nails, your best option is to use a sponge. It will definitely absorb the excess polish and dab the glitters onto your nails.
Step 2. Water Marbling
With a cup filled halfway with water, drop some white nail polish and top coat until you have a target-like effect. Drag the the rings horizontally in a back and fourth motion across the cup using a dotting tool. Repeat this motion but this time do it vertically.
Way #1 Nail Wipes
For Way #1, Dip your nail in a concentrated area with vertical lines. Clear the nail polish around your nail with a cotton buds then you can take your finger out of the water. Clean up the mess using nail pads soaked with nail polish remover.
Way #2 Nail Form
For Way #2, do the same step in water marbling. Attached a nail form before you dip your nails into the water. Dip your nails into the water and clean up the excess polish around your nails. Take your finger out of the water then remove the nail form.
Way #3 Sticky Tape
For Way # 3, Use a sticky tape and put it around your nails before dipping it into the water. Once you take it our from the water, remove the tape carefully. You will see that this method refrains your whole fingers from being messy.
Step 3. Top Coat
Apply a top coat to smooth out everything and seal in your design.
