  • When graphic designer and artist Joanna Bean Martin shared with us her technique for marbling the bottoms of glassware with nail polish, we couldn’t wait to try it ourselves. Who knew it would be such an easy way to add color and pattern to your next tablescape or party?

  • Layer the colors one on top of the other. Take a toothpick and pull out out the polish to create a swirly pattern, starting from the center. Work quickly as the polish will start to harden and clump up over time.

  • Submerge the bottom of the glass into the
polish. Allow the polish to collect around the sites of the glass and pull out carefully. Little air bubbles may form but that is to be expected! Before marbling the next glass, take a clean toothpick and sweep up any excess of polish from the water.

  • Allow to dry completely before applying a layer of clear polish.
