Marbled effect nail decoration
Begin by applying a coat of nail polish on your nails. This allows to have a manicure much more beautiful and durable. You can also apply a coat of white polish to accentuate the colors afterwards. Wait until it dries before continuing. Protect your fingers so you do not color them with the polishes you will use. You can cover them with Vaseline, glue, cuticle oil or scotch.
Modern nail decoration in bright colors
Choose a small container such as a shot glass or a plastic cup. It is possible that the container is stained with varnish. So, pick one that you can throw next or keep for next time. Nail polish is toxic, but not used in small amounts. In case you opt for a drink, well washed after use, it is safe to use without any danger. Cover the surface on which you will work with paper so as not to leave traces of varnish.

Fill the chosen container with water at room temperature, not with hot water, to prevent the varnish from drying out too fast. Try until you find the right water temperature. Now is the time to choose the polish you will work with. Choose at least two contrasting colors and keep two others in reserve, because not all varnishes always work for the marbled effect. The marbled effect requires a lot of varnish, so it may be better to use cheaper but new varnishes. Leave the varnish outlets to work more easily.
Perfect nail decoration for the summer
Put a single drop of varnish in the water. It must spread a little on the surface of water. If it stays in the center, then turn the container until it spreads out. Repeat the same with the other colors. Put the following drops of varnish just in the center of the previous drops. Three or four drops of different colors suffice in general. Take a toothpick, place it carefully in the center of the inner circle of varnish obtained and move it through the different colors to create patterns such as, for example, spiraloid patterns.

Place your fingernail just above the pattern and slowly lower it into the surface of the water. Keep the nail in the water long enough for the created pattern to stick on it. It may take just a few seconds, or even a full minute, depending on the varnish. When you take out your fingernail, the motive must be there. Remove the remaining water on your finger just like the protection you used. And now, your first marbled nail is ready! All you have to do is repeat the same operation with the other nine!
