Recently, Alpana of @alpsnailart tried a brightly colored water marble – but not in your average way. She first created the swirled look, dried the polish, and then applied it to nails like a wrap afterwards. Get the step by steps by clicking through below.
A few tips to get you started:
1. When applying applique onto nails, make sure polish is not too dry, otherwise it won’t stick properly. On the other hand, your polish should not be too wet. Since the applique is made of nail polish as well, it merges with wet polish and deforms the design. So to get best results, always apply onto a semi-wet base.
2. Your appliques can be used anytime even after a week or few days. To preserve it, leave it in water until you want to use it. Once taken out of the water, it starts getting dry and stiff and can crack if you try to apply it to your nails.
