✮ Water Spotted Beach Nails (2 Ways!) ✮


Hello everyone it’s Janelle and since it’s kind of around spring break time this video will be a beach nails tutorial I’ll show you two different variations of this look one will be a more glamorous look with gold nail charms and the other one will be a more simple look with less materials and a painted starfish let me know which one you prefer in the comment section below for the painted starfish option with no nail charms you will need white for the seafoam effect a sandy beige for the sand a light and a medium blue and an optional glitter polish for some extra sparkle for the sponge gradient you’ll need a wedge sponge to apply color for the watery seafoam effect you’ll need a body mist or a body splash with alcohol in it an inexpensive one is fine and a small bowl with water to make a starfish you’ll need a dotting tool or bobby pin with orange nail polish you’ll also need a nail polish remover to clean up and a base and topcoat for the nail charms option I added a few extra touches for a glam look to the same set of colors I added a sandy beige glitter from Zoya for the accent nail because it really looks like sparkly sand and I also added a couple decorative pearls some gold metal shells and a gold starfish as always I’ll have links to the materials in the description box first apply your favorite basecoat to all of your nails for all nails except for the ring finger apply white polish as your base color this will help the sponge gradient stand out next apply the following colors to your makeup sponge beige on top then light blue and medium blue make sure your white layer is dry and then dab on with your sponge to create a beachy ombre effect I applied two layers of color for a more saturated look now get your small bowl ready and fill with tap water not sure what temperature is best but I used regular tapwater from the sink and by the way I’ve seen this technique on a few YouTube videos and also on Pinterest so wanted to try it out for myself and share it with you totally not my original idea okay now just take your white nail polish and drop a couple drops onto the water surface it should spread out like this using your body mist or alcohol spray spray the surface of the water the alcohol in the mist is a solvent so it breaks up the thin layer of polish and creates this spotty effect take a look at the design and figure out what area you like best I’m choosing this part now just dip your finger into the desired area then dip a toothpick or brush end and remove the excess and now you’re left with a messy but very cool ocean inspired design clean up around the nail with nail polish remover I used a q-tip and a synthetic brush for a detailed clean up and since I covered up some of the beach portion of the nails I went over it again with beige polish totally up to you if you want to do the same for some added sparkle I added a tiny bit of iridescent glitter polish towards the top of the nail you can totally stop here if you wish but since I had some beachy related charms on hand I added a golden metal shell and a couple pearls to a few of the nails as a finishing touch For the ring finger I applied this beachy sandy polish from Zoya I bought this specifically for this look but a regular beige nail polish would still look great for the painted starfish look take a dotting tool or bobby pin dipped in orange polish and make a rounded star shape right in the middle of your nail for a more glamorous look I applied a small dot of nail glue and applied this gold starfish nail charm from Hexnailjewelry let everything dry completely and then add your favorite topcoat and now your beach nails are finished music by Jeremy Passion that’s it for this video Thanks for watching!

  3. Hey can you help me?!! I can never NEVER get that water marbling stuff to work! I LOVE how it looks, but what am I doing wrong?…😟

  4. I've now grown out my nails very long so I can do a gradient. But, even when I trim my sponge down, one color always misses my nail : (

  5. hello . can I ask u . how can use this design by gelish ?I very interesting with this design .thanks so so so so much

  7. so I try spraying the alcohol and it just shrinks instead of creating the desired holes, or when it does it makes a huge hole… any tips

  8. When I get to the spraying part, the seafoam effect thingies break apart too much? Like they dont look seafoam-y they end up looking fuzzy T_T do I need to use more opaque white or use multiple drops of the white nail polish?? HALP PLZ

  9. When she did the watermarble I was like "where's the liquid latex " then I looked in the description box and saw the video was made in 2014, that dark times without when we didn't have liquid latex

  10. Vaseline works well to keep nail polish from sticking to skin during water marbling. Just apply with a q-tip before painting, and after dipping finger, use q-tip to easily wipe off polish from skin.

  11. Why am I watching this? I hardly ever do my nails and I have really crappy polishes your voice is super soothing though

  12. I'm generally not for nail charms but this look is so classy. I may try it. Since I also do polymer clay I can even make my own charms. I especially love the sea foam effect. Light reflecting off the surface of a pool onto a ceiling (I sadly do not live near a beach) is one of my favorite effects, and has been since I was a small child learning to swim.

  13. Ohmigod…that song…I'm totally crying. I think I found the perfect song to walk down the isle to! Great video. LOVE the design! <3

  14. these are the more GORGEOUS nail do i have ever seen ….but one problem …the white water marble u did on nails for beach wave look …doesnt works everytime …i really wish i would have shown this how to do it free handed in case water marble fails 🙁 …anyway beautiful
