What You'll Need:
Flat bottomed glassware
Nail polish in different, complementary colors
Clear nail polish
Plastic cup
Toothpick
Painter's tape

How To Make It:
1. Wrap painter's tape around the bottom of your glass.
2. Fill a plastic cup with water and pour in a few drops of nail polish (make sure you only do one color at a time). The colors will layer up on top of each other.
3. Use a toothpick to swirl the colors together.
4. Dip the bottom of your drinking glass into the nail polish and pull it back out.
5. When your glass has dried completely, go back over the marbled bottom with clear nail polish to keep it from chipping.
