Nail paints are not just to be used for nails, there are some other tricks too to them. One of them is to use them as a coloring agent for marbling different products. Marbling is a method of surface design, which can produce patterns similar to marble. The patterns are the result of color floated on plain water, and then carefully transferred to a surface, such as paper, glassware, ceramic, or fabric.It is appealing because the end results to marbling is always a mystery, as they turn out differently every time. Here are few things to try with them….

Coffee Mug– If you are board of using the same old plain coffee mug, then here is a trick to add some colors to it. Take some water in  deep bowl, and now pick up your favorite shades of nail paints. Add some drops of these colors to the water and swirl a little by the help of a toothpick, remember to do this very gently otherwise the colors will loose their patterns. Also you have to be really quick while doing marbling otherwise the patterns are lost. Now very gently, dip the part of the cup where you want the pattern to be and lift it up. You will see a nice pattern transferred to the cup. Let it dry completely before use.
