Start by choosing your varnishes: 2, 3 or more. The ideal is to choose colors that are clearly visible and that offer a striking contrast for an original decoration. For the colors to stand out well, it is imperative to apply a very clear base varnish on the nails. Choose a color that evens out the entire surface of the nail, including the free edge.
Next, pour some water into a container. Note that the water must be at room temperature for the varnish to remain liquid long enough. Otherwise, it may freeze quickly.
To avoid smudges and dirt, it is essential to protect the finger. For this, you can use petroleum jelly that you simply apply around the edge of the nail. Thus, the layer of varnish that will attach to the Vaseline will be very easy to remove with the help of a cotton swab.
Now is the time to drop a drop of varnish on the surface of the water. Do this until you have the desired number of circles and colors. Using a small stick or a toothpick, all you have to do is draw patterns on the water: spirals, flowers, abstracts. Then, dip your fingernail horizontally inside this mixture, making sure your finger is parallel to the surface of the water, and you’re done!
