Step 2

Take your skewer and swirl.

Step 3

Put your mug into the bowl. The nail polish will hold on it. Put it out and place your mug on the paper towel to dry. That’s it! Please note: Your mug is no longer dishwasher safe nor is it microwave safe! Please hand-washing!

  1. Hallo ihr Süßen, was für eine zauberhafte Idee! Ich hab das vorhin auf eurem Insta gesehen & musste echt schauen kommen wie ihr das gemacht habt. Nagellack & Water Marbelling war also das Geheimnis 🙂 Da wäre ich nicht drauf gekommen. Ich glaube ich werde das mal ausprobieren, ist eine mega schöne Geschenkidee & auch was fürs eigene Zuhause.

    Ganz liebe Grüße
