Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Black & White Watermarble Tutorial

Hey everyone! Okay so this is the first time that I ever tried making a video. Turns out I ended up creating a youtube account although that wasn't my plan at the moment. But it does make it easier to upload videos onto my blog using it. For polishes and products used click here

Step By Step Instructions:

  1. Start by applying a base coat to your nails
  2. Once base coat is dry apply white nail polish as you base color (you can use the lightest color of the colors that you will be marbling with, but I prefer white because it helps the colors to pop)
  3. Allow nails to dry thoroughly or use a dry fast top coat to assist with this
  4. Apply Elmer's Glue, Glitter Off by O.P.I. Liquid Palisade, Tape etc. (whatever you may have available) around the cuticle of your nail to help with an easier and faster clean up
  5. Start adding drops of polish(you have to move quickly if not polish will dry) into the bowl of water (water should be room temperature if not the polish will dry faster than you would like) the order that you desire (newer nail polish is easier to watermarble with; if not just add some nail polish thinner to assist with this)
  6. Start creating a design with a toothpick, needle, dotting tool etc. (again whatever you have available) but start the design from about the 4-5 inner ring. If you start directly from the most outer ring the design will pull because those that ring would have dried already 
  7. Once you have the desired design dip finger in the water at a 45 degree angle
  8. While finger is still in the water start to gently blow on the water while using a cotton swab, tooth pick, dotting tool etc. to clean up excess polish around the nail
  9. Slow bring finger out of water at the same angle that it went in
  10. Using tweezers remove product that you have around you finger
  11. Using a brush (I purchased mine from @joliepolish on instagram. The link to her store is in her profile) dipped in pure acetone (helps to make the clean up process faster), clean up around your cuticles.
  12. Apply dry fast top coat & then your finished!
