Greeting fellow nail geniuses!
I was inspired by Dressed Up Digits' rainbow water marble, which came from the tutorial by the incredibly talented and marvelous ProfessionalDQ and this manicure by Chokoreto to produce my own version, which I have dubbed The Acid Butterfly.
I have had oodles of trouble with water marbles in the past, but this one worked awesome! I made sure to use filtered water that was room temperature, and the sheers were pretty runny which helped when I was making my bulls eye. OR it was pure magical coincidence that I managed this one. ;p
Sorrrrry! My eczema is actually getting better now, but this manicure is from a week ago, and it was still bad then. I know it's ugly, and the camera makes it uglier than it really is. I would not have bothered photographing that hand but each nail was unique.

I got nail mail yesterday and I am dying to show it off! Working on the review post for it tonight. MADE OF WIN.
And that giveaway IS coming. It's just that I've been away from the internets awhile. I'm trying to familiarize myself with rafflecopter. The giveaway is actually getting bigger as time goes on and I find more cool stuff, which is ok...right? :P
