HOW TO CREATE A MARBLE NAIL EFFECT USING WATER

Water marble nail is a nail art technique consisting of dropping nail lacquers into clear water creating a pattern on the surface which is then transferred to the nail. It can also be embellished with various drawings in the top layer on the water.

There are two main types of water marble nail art methods: free-dropping and free-dragging. Free-dragging is far more common.

1. Free-dropping
Dropped patterns range from dropped lacquer-colored shapes to complicated drawings, such as spirals, in-frames and geometric. The free patterns are created by dropped colors of nail lacquers. For free-dropping, lacquer colors are dropped straight or diagonally into the water. The pattern begins to float on the surface of the water.

2. Free-dragging
Dragged patterns range from simple circular shapes to complicated drawings. Patterns such as marble, hearts-peacocks, animals, flowers, leafs, parallels, psychedelics, spiderwebs and random patterns in the style of designer Emilio Pucci, are generally performed with nail lacquers and some kind of tool.
