This is where we start using our polishes. I use just regular sink water but I've head bottled water works too if you're having issues with it. Room temperature too!
I would recommend trying each polish you use before starting just to make sure they spread properly. I used all Wet N Wild polishes for this design because they are honestly the best I've found for water marbling. They spread really well! I know the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polishes work really well too though.
Use your acetone to clean around your cuticles. There are many short tutorials on Youtube showing how to properly do this.
Alright so we aren't done yet. The trick to the perfect watermarble is tricking your audience into thinking you can watermarble perfectly! See how my pinky looks pretty weird and my middle finger has a huge knick in it? Well all you need to fix this is a thin paintbrush and the polishes you used in the watermarble.
Basically what I do is go over the messed parts and make them look how they "should." I fake it! If some of your lines are too thin/thick, fix them! Maybe even if your colors aren't quite as opaque as you'd like them to be (like I did with my middle finger)
