DIY Marbleized Makeup Brushes

More nail polish marbleized projects: Marbled Feathers & Marbleized Pumpkins!

Marbleizing with nail polish may have just become a new favorite DIY method.  It is gorgeous, easy to do and everyone has nail polish at home, so let’s marbleize all the things together!

Makeup Brushes
Nail Polish (as many colors or as little color as you like)
Glass of Warm Water


Fill your bowl with warm water.  I used a long large glass jar because makeup brushes are long, if you are using a bowl, make sure there is enough room to dip the length of the brush (not the bristle part, of course!)
I used two nail polish colors at a time for this step.  Add some droplets of each nail polish to the water and gently swirl the bowl.  Dip your makeup brush in and turn it gradually while submerged to get the color attached.  Do all this relatively FAST.

Nail polish dries very quickly and if you do not do it fast enough you may get a huge blob instead of a nice marbleization.  Test it out on straws or some other plain object to get used to the fluid, fast motion.  Also, do not worry it is easy, I just make these strong suggestions so you get the best results. My 4 year old did half the brushes with me! (honestly, the prettiest marbleized brushes were the ones she did!)

Ironically, I wear very little to no makeup, I have always been just a lip gloss and mascara girl.  My daughter, however, LOVES to play with makeup, which is funny because I have never modeled the behavior.  So, these pretty pink brushes are a gift for her and it was a fun crafternoon with Mom.
