Marble till you drop!
I was seeing all that nail marbling stuff and found it oh so pretty. Anyways, I'm not a girl that can pull that off too well... ( *harrumphs* Didn't stop me from doing it as soon as I ran out of hair clips... but don't tell anyone! )
So I was running around in circles wondering what other things you can do with nailpolish and water, and I came up with: Hair clips! YAY!
So here we go. I'm not gonna explain the whole marbeling part, there are a lot of amazing how-tos on youtube, and one is on here. Check it out, the lady has quite a few astonishing nail tutorials!

Well, this is pretty much what you'll need. Some sort of cup or bowl that you could throw away any time, a towel and some... lack of words here... tissue? to wipe off stuff from other stuff...
Nail polish of course...
( Yeah, about that... Grabb all your bottles. Open every last one up and check if the polish is liquid enough so it will drop. If it doesn't and you find out during the process, you're f*cked. )
And hair clips, obviously, or any other small device that you wanna prettyfy!
Plus, you want to take stips of this thin kitchen foil to wrap up your food. I have no idea what that's called in english. xD
Open the window! Seriously! Inhaling the nail polish gas stuff in a tiny room without a window is NOT good!
I started easy with two glimmering colours, a gold and a purlpe-ish one. Really nice, glamourous combo.
Grab a toothpick, the handle of your rat tail comb, any thin stick will do. Swirl around the colours and stay away from the edges. Work quickly.
Get hold of your clip-on-a-stick and see which part of the surface design you want to have on it. And then just... dip it in. Drown the motherf... Gosh, that was tempting...
Hold it under water for about half a minute, gently blowing on the surface so the rest of the polish dries. Lift every bit of colour up with another toothpick or so. This is actually the funniest part I think. ^^
Lift the clip back up and let it dry. Aint that beautiful?
When it's dry, remove the plastic and adore. Maybe the polish that was on the plastic will stay between the sides as a thin layer, but you can easily get rid of that with a pair of tweezers or something. Just carefully peel it off.
You may add a top coat if you thing that's necessary. I used a glitter polish on some of them, too. Girly stuff. :D
The next steps are just pictures of some ( ! I made quiiiite a few! ) the clips I made... and of the scary girly pink glittering fingernails I have now. xD
... DAH-DAAAAH! xD
a hand-painted amount of grunge to gimme back my non-girly-feeling. *giggles*
If you're wondering why I used the same colours all over: These were the only ones that were liquid enough. Remember, I told you about that. These also were the cheapest ones. Could be a coincidence.
Be aware that this takes quite an amout of polish, so don't you ruin yourself by using your most precious expencive ones ( though I don't get why people buy overly pricy cosmetics in the first place ^^ ).
That's pretty much it for now.
