Part II: Creative / Abstract Nail Art tutorial using Water Marble Nail art technique
Sometimes we face issue when the polish does not spread too wide. Or we are able to create good bulls eye in water but not able to create good design further. So we need not waste the hard work and nail polish now. Using above Water marble nail art applique technique, (See tutorial here) we can create creative nail designs.
Step 1 :
Create bulls eye by dropping different colors of nail polish in water. Leave the ready design in the water to dry for 4 to 5 hours. But for best results, leave it overnight to dry in water .
With the help of fan brush or any broad flat object, lift the dried water marble swatch. This applique is thin and delicate so you need to handle it carefully. Outer layer is usually thinnest and may break (Like the one in this image) But its ok. We don’t use it anyways.
Cut the applique from the middle into 2 parts. Cut it further into small parts.
Step 4, 5 and 6 :
Apply White nail polish on nails. Once its semi wet, stick the small pieces to create abstract design.
With the help of cuticle pusher or orange wood stick remove the extra applique around the shape of nail. Apply Matte Top coat.
Now you can create many such abstract designs using Water Marble Nail art applique.
