How to do water manicure

Before we had time to get used to the French manicure and extended nails, decorated with rhinestones, we are offered to master the technique of water (marble) manicure for use at home. There are many video files on the Internet devoted to the secrets of water manicure, which are invariably accompanied by captions like «We will show you how to do a water manicure at home, it’s easy and fast.» But is it so easy to make a water manicure at home, as the professionals promise? Let’s figure it out together.

What is needed for water manicure?

  • water;
  • wide shallow container;
  • oily hand cream;
  • scotch;
  • toothpicks;
  • nail polish remover;
  • cotton buds;
  • cotton pads;
  • transparent nail polish;
  • several vials with multi-colored nail polishes.

How to do water manicure?

  1. Like any other manicure, we begin to do a water manicure with nail treatment — trimming the cuticle and giving the nails the desired shape. Having finished the preparatory procedure, we cover the nails with a transparent varnish, or varnish of the color that you want to make the main one in the composition. Let the varnish dry well.
  2. Pour warm water into the container.
  3. We lubricate the skin around the nail with a greasy cream, while trying not to get the cream on the nail itself. Otherwise, the nail polish will not stick. Instead of cream, you can glue your fingers with tape, leaving your nails free. This is done so that beautiful stains are obtained only on the nails, and not along the entire length of the finger.
  4. We take the first bottle of varnish, and carefully drip the varnish into the water, bringing the brush to the surface of the water. When the first drop spreads, take a varnish of a different shade and add a drop of it to the water. So alternately drip varnish into the center of the composition. You can and should experiment with colors, taking both varnish of different shades of the same color, and completely different colors. It is important to remember that the varnish that you dissolved in water first will prevail on your nails.

  6. We take a toothpick and make stains on the surface of the varnish with it. At first, it is worth limiting yourself to divorces, and after acquiring a certain skill, it will be possible to perform more complex patterns. It is necessary to mix varnishes no longer than 1 minute.
  7. Immerse the nail in water, pull out and remove the varnish from the skin around the nail. While the varnish is not dry, you can add glitter.
  8. We let the varnish dry — this procedure, due to water, will take much longer than with ordinary painting and cover the nail with a transparent varnish in order to prolong the life of the manicure.
  9. Repeat the same procedure with the rest of the nails. Water after each dive does not need to be changed, varnish residues are easily collected with a toothpick.

Water manicure fails

  1. Patterns on all nails turned out different. The principle of water manicure is to perform patterns on the nails in the same style, and not in the identity of the pattern. So you get the same nails and should not.
  2. The varnish curls or does not dissolve. There may be 2 reasons for this behavior — the temperature of the water and the consistency of the varnish itself. Water should be exactly warm, but not hotter than 40 ° C. Room temperature water for marble manicure will be optimal. Varnish for water manicure should be chosen liquid, but you should not dilute it with a solvent — just ruin everything. For the first experiments, it is better to take 2-3 multi-colored varnishes.
  3. It is not possible to make a water manicure, as in the picture. No wonder, not many people manage to achieve the desired result the first time, there are examples of persistent people who, in pursuit of perfection, redid their manicure more than 20 times. But maybe you just don’t have the patience? Lacquer takes a long time to dry.

From the foregoing, it becomes clear that a marble manicure is undoubtedly beautiful, but also laborious and requires a lot of free time. So you should not hope for the veracity of statements about the simplicity and speed of this method.
