You can buy professional-grade nail art kits that include all the brushes, stripers and marbling tools you’ll need. You can also improvise using a toothpick or bobby pin to apply dots and swirl colors with precision, or you can buy thin-tipped detail brushes at your local arts or hobby store.
All nail art starts with healthy nails. Your nails should be even and well-shaped (and non-bitten). Your cuticles should also be healthy and not peeling.
You can purchase dotting tools to help draw different sized dots accurately.
When using the water marble technique glitter polish does not work as well as plain. The glitter tends to separate.
Reapply a clear top coat every two or three days to protect your art and keep your nails looking shiny. Apply cuticle oil daily.
You can also use a pin to make small and precise dots on your nails.
Use different implements for different colors, or clean your brush or tool between each color, just as you would clean a paintbrush when you change colors.
Have all of your materials together when you start your project. Because the polish is always drying, you are working against time. You'll need everything handy before you get started.
Use toothpicks for tiny details, paper reinforcements to create the dashing half moon effect, a straw to make a splatter effect. So then, you don't need that super cheap equipment when you already have household everyday items around you! It really brings in the professional look in you.
Cover skin around nails with nail polish remover then paint let dry clear coat, then wash hands four times.
