How to make a water marble mug with nail polish

With all the nail polish shades available and because of the water's fluidity, there's almost an infinite number of possible designs for this eye-catching mug. How the design turns out depends a lot on the viscosity of the polish, how many drops are applied, where they are applied and the height the polish is dropped from.
The higher the drop, the more the polish will spread. Thinner polish will spread more than thicker ones. Use your imagination, but don't get upset if the design does not turn out exactly as envisioned. You'll probably like it even more than what you planned.
