Peek-a-boo Water Marble

Here is a peek-a-boo water marble using OPI Infinite Shine Grapely Admired and L'oreal Masked Affair. This can be a great way to get the water marble look with a polish that doesn't water marble well (Masked Affair in this case).

How to get this look:

1. Start by applying one coat of OPI Infinite Shine Primer Base Coat.

2. Then, apply two coats of OPI Infinite Shine Grapely Admired. I used L'oreal Masked Affair as a base color for my accent nails.

3. Apply liquid latex or tape around your cuticle for easy clean up.

4. In a cup of room temperature water, create a bullseye by dropping different colors of nail polish. I used OPI Infinite Shine Grapely Admired and Primer Base (clear so you can see my base peek through).

5. Using a needle, toothpick, or a dotting tool create a design from the bullseye.

6. When you're happy with your design, lineup your nails and dip in. Using a cotton swab clean the surface of the water.

7. Once the water is clean, slowly remove your finger and remove the latex or tape with tweezers.

8. With a small brush and acetone clean around your cuticles. I used the Kolinksy French Nail Brush #12.

9. When you're finished apply OPI Infinite Shine Gloss Top Coat.
