Using Nail Polish to Marble: An Upcycled Mug Craft

This story will teach you how to use your nail polish to create a beautiful marble effect on almost anything.

Materials Used:  Marbled Nail Polish Mug

– White coffee mug – Nail polish – Warm water – Bowl – Dishwasher safe mod podge

Warm Water

Add 1 cup of warm water to a plastic bowl or other disposable plastic container. Warm tap water is fine; it doesn’t need to be super hot.

Add Nail Polish

Add a few drops of each color nail polish to your bowl; you don’t need loads, so don’t overdo it!

Dip the Mug in the Bowl

You don’t need to stir the water that you’ve just put the nail polish drops in. Simply dip the mug into the bowl or tub briefly and lift it back out again.

Set your mug out to dry on a paper towel and do your cleaning while you wait!

Leave to Dry

If you want to be able to wash your mug in the dishwasher after this project, you will need to seal it.

Seal with Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge (Optional)
