Admiring all the different types of water marbled nails out there I had yet to come across someone who was willing to offer up a tutorial on how to do it all by yourself. Then I was contacted by Mixed Mama wanting to share her easy peasy 5 step tutorial on how to achieve the water marbled look yourself. I used to think it was really hard to do but not so…………… To get things started you will need the following

2 shades of nail polish. Use the following 2 shades if you are after nails like the ones in the pic or choose your own.

Essie Mint Candy Apple

Essie Soul Mate

Seche Vite Top Coat



Cup of room temperature FILTERED water

Mechanical pencil

Nail polish remover
