Doily Nail Art Tutorial by Hey, Nice Nails
We were originally going to explain how to create this nail art look by exaggerating this tutorial by the lovely ladies at Polish You Pretty, but someone asked if we would make a tutorial so we decided to give it a go! Enjoy.
1. Apply a base color. The color in the photo is Essie Cocktail Bling
2. Using a contrasting color, paint two heart shaped lobes at the tip of the nail
3. Outline the top of the heart in white
4. Use a large sized dotting tool to make white circles around the top of the heart
5. With your base color and a smaller sized dotting tool, make small dots inside the larger white dots
6. Use the smaller dotting tool and make small white dots around the inside of the heart
7. Top everything off with a good thick layer to topcoat to seal in your artwork!

Water Marble Tutorial.
Supplies: orange stick or toothpick, shot glass or cup (the smaller the circumference, the less polish you end up wasting), room temp. water, nail polish, tape (optional, but it helps with the clean up)
I like to begin by prepping my nails with base coat and one coat of polish. Here I used China Glaze Innocence for a nice neutral base.
Steps:
 1. Fill your cup with some warm or room temperature water. If the water is too  cold, the nail polish will seize up. 
 2. Choose the polishes you want to work with; keep in mind the opacity of the  polish you are using, if its too sheer, it might not look right. 
 3. I like to begin with the lightest color. Load up the brush and let a big drop of  polish fall into the water. Continue with the other colors until you have a few  concentric circles of polish in the water. 
 4. Using the toothpick or orange stick, drag through the polish from the edge  toward the middle. Continue to drag the stick through the polish until you find a  design that you think looks pretty.
 5. Optional: tape around the edge of the nail to protect your finger from  becoming covered with nail polish. Scotch tape works perfectly for this. 
 6. Holding your finger horizontally, dip your fingernail into the glass, making  sure it is completely submerged. 
 7. Use the toothpick/orange stick to trace around your finger, gathering up all the  unused nail polish in the glass. 
 8. Lift your finger out of the glass, and let dry before taking the tape off.
 9. Continue with your other nails until you have a full set of beautifully water  marbled nails.
 10. Slick on your favorite top coat and Voila! All done!
Most importantly, have fun! As with any type of nail art, practice makes perfect, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t get it right the first time. 
We would love to see pictures of all your water marbling attempts, so get dipping!
