Beauty Check - Part 2

Hey gals! As I said earlier that I am starting a series of posts that would give some beauty related information from worldwide cosmetics and beauty sites, I come across while surfing the net. So here is the second part of the series and it is also related to nail art :D You may think I am going crazy for nail arts but I have to tell you, I am just amazed with the creativity the polish addicts come up with everyday and thought of sharing the same with all of you and make you go a little crazy for nail-arts like me :D

Today's topic would be Water Marbling. 

All images taken from Google

Don't they just look awesome. Here is the process of how you can do it:
  • Fill a shallow, wide-mouthed cup or bowl about 90% full with water. 
  • Add desired colors of paint to the water. Have your paints open and ready to go, as they will harden quickly on the surface of the water. Drop a drop or two of the colors you want to use on top of the water. A high-quality nail polish works best for this method. 
  • Create the marbled design in the water. Repeatedly drag a pin or toothpick through the the surface. 
  • Use a cotton swab to remove the excess polish from the surface while your nail is still submerged in the water. 
  • Remove nail from water and use a cotton swab (with acetone if necessary), to clean up the edges and remove polish from the finger. (Info From Wiki)
Here are some tutorial videos I liked on YouTube. Go and watch and try them out. Let me know how was it!!

  3. Hi great post- though I ,must forewarn you that this technique doesn't work on all nail polishes.At least all the Indian brands I tried didn't work, one that came remotely close to working was Flormar nail polish. For this you need a polish that'll spread evenly & form a thin film on the water surface. Try using some Sally Hansen nail enamel those might work

  7. @IBC I don't have any Sally Hansen with me :(
    Lets see if I can get my hands on any such brand..I guess OPI would work!

  8. My friend tried this on me a while back. It's so fun and easy. The best tip as someone who has tried this is to use the water at room temperature.VERY important. Thanks for sharing.

  9. I had tried this once, it looks really pretty when the nailpolish spreads properly on top of water, but its so time consuming I didnt try it again. Nice post Pooja :)
