Materials and Tools:

nail polish
water

vases
container
drop cloth
nail polish remover
gloves

Add Polish

Pour water into a container deep enough to completely submerge the vases you want to marble. Add one drop of the first nail polish color to the water. Add a second color one drop at a time. Continue adding drops until a pattern starts to form.  

Apply Polish Effect

Use a toothpick or fine-tipped brush to create your desired pattern. Dip the vase into the water, enveloping all sides. Remove the vase from the water, and let dry. Dip back into the water to get your desired pattern. Use nail polish remover and a drop cloth to clean up any imperfect areas. Note: Work fast as polish dries quickly.
