Ornate Holiday Teal and Gold Water Marble | DIY Nail Art Tutorial


Hi guys! Today we’re going to be working on this Ornate Holiday Teal and Gold Water Marble. And, I know these are not exactly the
traditional Christmas colors, but they really reminded me just of
the holidays because they’re so rich, and I definitely could see these being
used on like a wrapping paper or other holiday
decorations. So, I decided to do a water marble with them. This is my third Sephora video, and so all of these polishes are
Formula X for Sephora. The lighter teal is called Enigma, the medium
kind of darker teal is called Orbit and this gold which is actually a duo-chrome is called Iconic. So, like usual for a
water marble I’m working in a 5 ounce cup of room
temperature filtered water. And I’m just going to finish off my bullseye with a few more
drops of polish. With my orange stick I’m going to start off going up
to the top, and then down to the bottom. And then I’m going to draw in a few basic
petals from one side to the other. And this particular design I’m going to be
dipping two nails at a time. If you want to have a
little bit more control and be more particular with where you’re
dipping you can always go with just one nail at
a time. Now that I have those in there, I’m going to draw some
petals kind of cross-wise at a 90 degree angle.
And that will just and a little bit more
intricacy to the pattern as you can see. Going to create three kind of channels about the width of my nails. I have my
nails prepped with some tape around the sides to keep the polish
off my skin, as well as a coat of Enigma. I’m going to turn this just a bit to get a
better angle, and then I’m going to line my nails up in the cup, and dip in. You may have noticed I have a
pretty serious break on that index finger, but with all these holiday designs I’m not quite ready to
give my nails a chop, so it’s patched pretty heavily. I’m going to clean up all this excess
polish in the cup. And once the surfaces is all clear so nothing
sticks on my design I’m going to slowly pull my nails out. And there you can see the marble design. And you can see, from the top you really can’t tell that there’s that
break at all. So, if you’d like to check out my patching
tutorial, that’s in the Tips and Tricks Playlist,
along with the Taping and Clean Up videos. If you’d like to pick up any of these colors Formula X is
available in Sephora stores as well as Sephora.com. And if you just would like to see some
