See for yourself on YouTube, doing a watermarble tutorial consist of introducing one's nail into a coloured eye of polish, floating in a goblet, then interposing the nail still wet between the camera and the eye.

Charleroi Nails watch
is a YouTube channel all dedicated to watermarble nail art tutorials. All videos show in background the gigantic and abandoned Palais des Expositions of Charleroi (1954). I responded to the colors of the building with colors of polish, then i uploaded the fragmented but almost complete image of the buiding in the community of painted nails.
