Let`s do this!

All you need is:

  • base coat
  • your favorite nail polishes
  • bowl
  • nail polish remover
  • toothpicks
  • cotton buds

Apply a base (white) coat to your nails and let it dry. In a small glass of warm or room temperature water, drop a dot of nail polish into the water. Pick up the next polish and drop a new dot aiming for the center of the first layer. Repeat the process with other colors. Now, the fun part, take a toothpick and drag it through the colors to create a marble pattern. Time to get messy, dip your nail into the polish pattern. Carefully lift your nail out of the water and wait for it to dry. Use the cotton buds and nail polish remover to clean all the excess polish from your fingers. Voilà!

Tip: Before doing this, apply vaseline on the skin around nails so you can easily remove nail polish from it afterwards.
