Water marble nails are a bit of a complex design in the world of nail art. Some ladies love water marble nail art, and others hate it. This design can be quite tricky to master for some, while others see it as a super easy way to get an awesome mani in no time.
The success (or failure) of a water marble nail design depends on a number of factors. Most nail art ladies agree that the water that you drip the nail polish into has a lot to do with the success of your design. Room temperature water is typically best for water marble nails, for instance. Some ladies add a few drops of acetone to the water, and others even go as far as using distilled water for water marble designs.
Even more important than the water used to create water marble nails, though, is the nail polish itself. Thinner nail polish generally works better and spreads across the top of the water better than thick or gloppy polish.
One of the great things about water marble nails is the sheer number of beautiful combinations you can come come up with. Check out some of these water marble nails if you need a little inspiration for your next water marble mani…
