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.
