Nail Art Tutorial: Holo Water Marble

Nail Art Tutorial: Holo Water Marble


By semick

Did you know you could water marble with holo polishes? Amy Tran (@amyytran) got out several of her favorites from Polished by KPT and created an enchanting swirl. Here’s how she did it:

Products used:

+ Bliss Kiss Simply Peel Latex Barrier
+ Polished by KPT: No Makeup Needed, Cruising Beverly, Waiting On Tiffany, Meet Me @Pink
+ Whats Up Nails Pure Color #7 Watermarble Tool
+ Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat



1. Apply white polish and let it dry.
2. Apply Bliss Kiss Simply Peel Latex Barrier.
3. Get a cup and fill it up with room temperature water (tap or filtered).
4. Add drops of polishes into the cup, making a bullseye. Make sure your polishes aren’t thick or goopy. Use new or somewhat runny polishes. You want the polish to spread in the cup. (Brands I find to work: Essie, OPI, Azature, Bonita colors, LVX, Pink Princess Cosmetics etc.) Experiment with different polishes.
5. Take a needle or toothpick and make your design. Make sure you wipe off the excess after each drag.
6. Choose your design and place your finger parallel to the water and dip it in.
7. Make sure your finger is straight in the water.
8. Blow the surface a little so some of the polishes dries and then take a Q-tip and get rid of the excess polish in the cup.
9. Remove the Bliss Kiss Simply Peel Latex Barrier and clean around the fingers using acetone/brush or Q-tip if needed.
10. Apply top coat and you’re done!
