How to Make Marbled Nail Polish Mugs

Monique Natalia

Supplies :
  1. Plain Coffee Mugs ( other ceramic or glass )
  2. Nail Polish (quick-dry nail polish are not recommended )
  3. Toothpicks
  4. Disposable Plastic Container ( the bigger, the better )
  5. Paper Towel
  6. Nail Polish Remover ( just in case )

  • 1. Fill your container with hot water.  The nail polish dries very fast on the water, so the hotter the better.

  • 2. Pour your nail polish into the water.  Hold the nail polish bottle close to the water, otherwise, the drops will fall to the bottom instead of resting on the surface. Instead of doing drops, you can also do swirly lines of nail polish, covering the whole surface of the water with gaps in between the lines.

  • 3. Once the nail polish is on the water, you’ll need to work quickly or the polish will dry.  Take a toothpick and swirl the nail polish so it covers most of the water.

  • 4. Quickly dip your mug into the polish.  Try not to get any on the place where the drinker would put their mouth.  Let it sit for a few seconds so the nail polish can cling to the mug.  Take your mug out of the water.

  • 5. Turn your mugs upside down on a paper towel to dry.

  • 6. This step is a personal preference. You can use nail polish remover to take off the nail polish on the bottom of the mugs.
