The basics of water marble

The principle of water marble is based on a well-known technique: the color gradient. The idea is very simple: just drop, one by one, drops of nail polish into a glass of water to create a pattern–customizable using a toothpick–and dip your fingernail inside. Beforehand, to bring out the colors well, it is best to apply a coat of white varnish on your nail. It is also better to protect your finger, by applying tape all around the nail to avoid having too much cleaning to do after the installation.

Tips for successful water marble

First of all, you have to choose the temperature of the water you use: neither too cold nor too hot, otherwise the varnish risks drying too quickly. Then, it is better to prefer a place sheltered from heat and drafts. Also good to know: water marble does not work with all varnishes. It is therefore preferable to do some tests before taking action.

Obviously, this is only an example and there are a multitude of ways to obtain an amazing result! Ready to launch? Before you start, suggest you go to our Maryton website, which has a lot of manicure supplies. Moreover, we’re full of inspiration with the most beautiful nail art!
