My first attempt at water marbling and a brief tutorial!

I have wanted to try water marbling for a while, but I thought it would be too difficult. I was wrong. It is probably the easiest way to paint your nails in a stunning design, it is very hard to get it wrong.

You need a couple of polishes, anything from two to four different colours, they can be in similiar tones or complete contrasts.
A glass of water
A few toothpicks
A few cotton buds
Masking tape (not necessary but makes life easier)

Basically you pour a drop of each of the different polishes one by one into the water, as many times as you like to achieve a range of colours.
Using the toothpick you make a design by gently dragging the toothpick across the polishes in the glass.
You then dip your finger into the glass
Use the cotton bud to collect the remaining polish floating around
And that's it

I will do a picture tutorial soon.

The masking tape is to protect your fingers from getting polish all over, so it just makes cleaning up easier. 

This is my first attempt at it...
