Nails: Water Marbling!

We heard of an awesome nail trend over the weekend, it’s called water marble nails. We love this trend because it’s an easy do it yourself kind of thing. First gather your supplies.

1 plastic container (big enough to fit your hand)
1 roll of tape
2 wood cuticle pushers
Acetone
Angled brush
Nail Polish!

Here are some easy steps to get started:

First, go ahead and fill the plastic container half way up with room temperature water then with we go ahead and start off with a base coat. We used the CHI Ceramic Nail Base & Top Coat just so our nails wont get stained. After that is dry we went ahead and painted our nails with OPI’s Amazing Spiderman Collection My Boyfriend Scales Walls. We waited for that to dry completely.

Once we made sure that was dry we went ahead and started to tape up around the cuticle (we do this so we wont have a mess on our hands and less to clean up). Go ahead and grab the CHI Ceramic Nail Lacquer Muy Caliente and place a drop in the water. Then grab the OPI color and place a drop. Keep adding as many dots as you want. Then go ahead grab your cuticle pusher and swirl the colors together when you have a desin place your first finger in face down (make sure to do these steps fast you don’t want the colors drying)
Keep your finger there until the colors on top of the water is dry and pick them up with the cuticle pusher.

Follow these steps for the rest of your fingers. Grab the CHI Base and Top coat and apply on top. When you are done make sure your hand is pretty dry and take off the tape. After grab the angled brush, dip it in acetone and clean up any of the nail polish around your nails. Voilà you have a pretty marble nail.
