Nail painting to the extreme

Sister Mikie and I did some intense nail painting today. 
Marble Nails
What you need:
Nail Polish (2-4 colors)
A plastic cup with room temp water
Scotch tape
Tooth picks
100% pure acetone
*Make sure your nails are already painted {and dried} the lightest color you are going to use before you start the marbling process.
 Take the nail polish and put 2-3 drops of the first color, let it expand then add the next color etc.
You then tape around your nail so you dont get polish all over {even though you still do}
Then you take a toothpick and swirl the colors around until you get desired pattern
{You must tape before because the polish will begin to dry and must be swirled and then the nail dipped quickly after}
Then dip your nail into the water and polish. Use toothpick to swirl extra polish away before pulling nail out.
It should look something like this:
You have to repeat the whole process for each nail, so we started doing 2 nails at a time, and that worked well.
Once all your nails are dry, peel off the tape and use q-tips and 100% pure acetone polish remover to clean up around your nails.
Then add a clear top coat and you are all set!
Yeahh they are balller, we know.
