3 Easy Water Marble Designs – Video Tutorial! – Great for Beginners

Hello, all! I had posted a “requests for Wednesday’s video tutorial” post on Instagram recently, and I got a request for water marble. I hadn’t done that in a while, and I enjoy it, so I created a nail art video tutorial for 3 easy designs you can create with the water marbling technique!

Alright, so let’s not dilly-dally. Here’s the list of polishes and products that I used with links from the threesixtynails Nail Shop, so that you can find the same products I used, and the video tutorial is right below. Enjoy!

Polishes/Tools used in this design:

Seche Clear: Crystal Clear Basecoat

China Glaze: Heat Index (neon/bright jelly hot pink)

Serendipity: Pink Pointsettia (creme medium pink) *Unavailable on Amazon.com

Formula X: Radical (lilac/light-pink) *As usual, this polish is hiding, so this link goes to a fabulous OPI polish, “Mod About You”.

Revlon: Enchanted (almost-shimmery lavendar)

Revlon: Hypnotic (pearlescent/shimmery fuchsia)

Formula X: Petal to the Metal (pearlescent/shimmery deep purple) *This was unavailable, so this link is to a great Color Club polish.

wet n wild: Bijou Blue (light sky/ocean-blue)

OPI (Fiji Collection): Do You Sea What I Sea? (shimmery ocean blue) *Link to almost-identical shade, “I Sea You Wear OPI”.

Zoya: Dream (dark sparkly holographic blue/indigo)

Serendipity: Finishing Touch Topcoat *Unavailable on Amazon.com

Mini Mani Moo: Mess No More! Liquid (latex) Tape

Clean-Up Brush *Whats Up Nails brand

Essence: Duo Stylist (dotting tool)


I honestly cannot decide on my favorite… ☺ I really like how bright the pink is, the flower design is so gorgeous, and the glitz and holo in the ocean one is STUNNING. If you can choose, which one’s your favorite? Comment below!
