Hello everyone :)
Today, I have ANOTHER tutorial!!! I showed you small preview with the NOTD posted before this on the dry marbling technique. I'll do a tutorial on water marbling too (or maybe not, since there are so many good YouTube videos on them...). Either way, I don't like to water marble that often because it's so messy AND it uses up a lot of polish. Plus, there are so many other factors to ensure a good water marble such as water temperature and the types of polishes you're using (not all are water marble friendly). However, dry marbling is much cleaner, and you don't waste as much polish. The only downside is you can't get the really pretty designs that you can with water marbling. Either way, I very much prefer the dry marbling technique than water marbling. Here's what I used.
The finished product looks like this..(I still have this mani on btw hehe)
You get the best results by doing your nails one at a time since the base still has to be wet. I found this surprisingly easy to do, and virtually no clean-up! What I do with water marbling is I put tape around my nail, but I still have to do more cleanup afterwards. The dry marbling technique though, as long as you stay within your nail surface, there's no cleanup necessary. Plus, you don't waste as much polish, and there's no fuss with water (which I tend to spill all the time when water marbling).
Since it's a free-hand marble, you can do any kind of "design" until you are content with your swirling. Don't swirl too much though because then it just blends the nail polish colors together. Remember, both your polishes (the base color and dot) have to be WET.
If anyone decides to try this out, please share :) I'd be glad to feature a post on it :)
Thanks for looking <3
