Faux Water Marble Second Attempt

So this is my second attempt at the faux marble. I have heard this technique called faux water marble as well as tie-dye nails. The best way to explain it is to watch it so head on over to Dollface22772 YOU TUBE Channel and see for yourself. The polishes I used for mine was China Glaze Platinum Silver, OPI That's Berry Darling, Wet n Wild Dream Poppy and Blazed. My mistake has been that I am using a toothpick when I should be using a needle or straight pin. I will be trying this again for sure! It's so easy I hope to master it soon.


Do you guys water-marble? Does this look like a way faster process to you with similar results?

  3. Yea it took me like 3 times and 4 YouTube videos to figure it out. This is not the exact effect but's similar and so simple!

  4. No the only thing I have used is a tooth pick but next time I am going to use a straight pin and see how that goes.
