Spring Flowers Watermarble Nail Art!

Good afternoon, readers! As you saw with my last post, the weather is warming up and that makes me want to wear bright and fun nail art! I decided to do a watermarble with three of the China Glaze Sunsational cremes from last summer. These are bright and water marbled really easily! My most popular blog post is a similar water marble design from 2 years ago, so I hope you all like this color combo as well! 

Here is how I did it:
  • I painted one coat of China Glaze That's Shore Bright and let dry.
  • Then, I used a clean up brush and "painted on" vaseline all around my nail to prevent the polish from sticking to my skin.
  • I then did my water marble design in a shot glass using China Glaze That's Shore Bright, China Glaze Too Yacht To Handle, and China Glaze Neon & On & On.  (A very long time ago, one of my earliest tutorials was this flower water marble design, go check it out but please don't laugh!)
  • After I dipped my finger into the glass and wiped the polish from my skin (easy removal because with the vaseline it just wipes off with a qtip--no remover required!), I used another clean up brush and acetone to get the edges around the nail cleaner.
  • To add some sparkle, I painted one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust on top.
  • Seche Vite top coat was used to seal in the design.

What do you think of this design? It's been a while since I've done a watermarble but I love the results! I posted a quick video on Instagram of how I did this same watermarble on mine and my daughter Hailey's toes so make sure to check it out! Thanks so much for reading!

  2. Beautiful colours - I'm v jealous of your watermarbling ability!

  3. Shut up! Using a stamper to pick up the polish for water marbling is genius! You are amazing.

  4. Lovely this is a lovely spring mani

  5. Oooooh so pretty! Love it!

  6. That is *so* gorgeous! I need to try the Vaseline technique sometime--I tend to tape off my fingers, which works but makes the skin so dry. I have heard the petroleum jelly gets in the water and makes it a bit oily and hard to work with, though--did you have any troubles like that?

  7. So beautiful, I love the softer colors! And the holo topper makes an already gorgeous mani even better!
