Water Marble Nail Art (Without Water)


I like to swirl it, swirl it! Do you like to swirl it?

When it comes to nail art, I love water marble nail art! But let’s face it, water marble nail art requires a lot of time and patience. What if I told you, you can achieve an amazing water marble design without any fuss and also without having to use water? Don’t believe me? Simply just keep on reading to know how πŸ˜‰

Are you ready? Let’s get started! πŸ˜€


You will need a base coat, a white nail paint, a pink nail paint, a top coat and a toothpick.


Step 1:Β 

Start by applying a base coat. A lot of you tend to skip this step. But I highly recommend not to, as it is a very important step when it comes to nail care. Investing in a good base coat helps you protect your natural nails.

Step 2:

Paint half of your nail vertically using any white nail paint of your choice. I used the white nail paint from color effect.

Step 3:

Now immediately paint the remaining half with a pink polish. I used pink zebra from faces.


Step 4:

While the polish is still wet grab a toothpick and start drawing a circle design from the center of your nail (Refer to the picture below numbered as 4) . Continue in this manner enlarging the circles making your way to the outer area of your nail. (Tip: For a neater result, try not touching the toothpick to your nail while drawing the design, be light handed and touch only the polish)

Step 5:

Seal it with a top coat to give it that extra shine and protection. And voila! Your very own swirl water marble (without water) design πŸ˜€


Hope you enjoyed reading this post and found this useful. If you recreate this design do not forget to share it with me on instagram @stayglamrs. I will be back with another cute and simple nail art design soon!
