Water Marble Nail Polish

Jul 27, 2011 8:40am

I just got back from a little vacation with my mom, two sisters and our children. Every year (sometimes 2-3 times) we go on a vacation together without our husbands and take the kids to play and hang out with their cousins. It can get a bit crazy, but we always have a great time hanging out, hiking and swimming together. We just got back this past Sunday. So that might explain my lengthy absence around here. While we were there my sister taught us how to paint our nails with this really fun and unique marbling pattern. My girls and I really enjoyed it and all the girls were able to get it done.

The process is actually pretty amazing and easy, but there are a few steps involved. Since there were already some great video tutorials out there, I won?t bother writing up a tutorial and will show you the video we used to learn how to marble our nails.

We followed the tutorial pretty closely, not only did we put scotch tape at the base of our fingernail and around the finger?we also rubbed some Vaseline around our fingertips and fingernails to make the clean up process a bit easier and faster as it can get pretty messy.

Make sure to have some nail polish remover on hand and to do this in a well ventilated room. The possibilities are endless! Have fun and get creative. Wouldn?t this be fun for a girls birthday, slumber party or Girls Night Out? Have you ever seen this or had this done for yourself?
