Have you ever tried to do water marble mani? Aren’t they gorgeous! But it does make a mess, right? And not to mention, you’ll need a hell of a lot of tape. Have you ever wondered if there’s an easier (and cleaner) way to marble your nails?
Well, actually I think there is… I found a way to make it easier for me. I made the marbled design to sort of a decal thing, and thought I’d share how. 🙂
After doing the design, I waited for it to be completely dry. Like 10 to 15 minutes or so. You could use a bigger bowl so you could get out a design big enough for couple of nails, or like me I used two small cups.
When it’s already dry, I took it out of the water and lay the wet surface (the one that’s right above the water) on a paper towel, waited for a couple more minutes.
Since my white base polish was already dry, I layered a clear coat on before placing the marbled “decal” on my nail. Then I used a metal cuticle pusher to shape or like slice the decal according to my nail shape, cut the tip part using a nipper. Another layer of clear coat, and done. 🙂
Did I mention there’s no tape needed? And less clean up? Lol
Well, hope this helps! Tell me if ever you’re going to try it out, I wanna know if it’ll also work for you. 🙂
