How I Do Water Marbling

I am no pro at water marbling but this is how I do it. Most of the times..

So, this are the stuff I use and prepare ahead.

  • a plastic cup
  • room temperature bottled water (distilled or filtered water)
  • orangesticks
  • scissors
  • scotch tape
  • paper towel
  • my choice of polish
  • nail polish remover
  • a small brush or Qtips

This time I used Sansan's Violet Glam for the base color. I applied 1 coat coz it'll be covered anyway.


Taped off my fingers like so.

Front view


Side view


Taped all my fingers.


This is how it looks like at the back.


Then another tape I always put on top of my fingers like so.


Bring it to the sides.


I didn't have a pic of the actual polish dropping coz it'll dry on me. I used SanSan's Purple Breeze, French White and Purple Glam.

This is my pic of the first finger I dipped though.


I snipped the tapes at the back and the top part. I do this so I wouldn't have a lot of polish on my skin and if I do have, then there won't be a lot to remove. I got this tip from a Youtuber, I just forgot who.


See? I don't have polish on my lower part of the fingers. The tape saved me!


So, this is my end result after clean-ups.



Hope this helps!
