DIY with Design Mom: Marbling with Nail Polish

Nail Polish Marbling ac2

I learned a fabulous new use for finger nail polish – marbling!! – and I shared it over on Design Mom. Nail polish can be used to marble just about anything you want. Crazy, huh? Metal, papier maché, wood, glass, everything is game. And it’s so easy, albeit a bit stinky. :)

    I love this idea. And I totally just had a “duh, why didn’t I think of that?” moment. So simple and beautiful!

    I’ve seen it done on nails. It’s all over Pinterest but who would have thought to apply the same technique to well…anything else? So clue! Awesome Amy. I love it!

    I have a question.. If it dries so quickly, won’t it damage my sink?

      I didn’t use my sink to do the marbling, instead used a plastic tub, so I can’t give you any advice here. I would be nervous doing it in my sink.

        Nail polish remover will get the polish off of your sink. I saw small sections of color when I dumped my tub of water when I was done. One swipe of polish remover and my white sink is white again!
