31DC2014: Inspired by a colour

Yes, this is a rainbow watermarble, and no I don't have my days mixed up.  This is definitely my inspired by a colour mani, and there is a good reason why I have a rainbow marble.

Last year when I did this challenge, I had no idea what "Inspired by a colour" meant. So I checked out how Sarah from Chalkboard Nail interpreted it.  She took it to mean, inspired by a nail polish colour - eg the name of it.  So that is what I did last year.  I had planned to do that this year too and I sat down in front of my stash list to read through the names of all the polishes in my collection.  Not a single polish name jumped out at me for something I could paint.  I was totally out of inspiration. 

This is when I turned around to Mr 6 and asked him what is favourite colour was.  I figured I would paint something in his favourite colour as he always loves checking out my nail art.  His answer to me was "RAINBOW - my favourite colour is rainbow mum!"

Screw it, I thought, I'm going to do a rainbow marble using my polishes, because I'm now 'he shit' at doing watermarbles and I want to show off. Tee hee.

Needless to say, I'm pretty damn happy with how this came out.  From someone that couldn't do a watermarble to save themselves a few months ago (just ask my local Canberra nail girls from when we did a Watermarbling polishing session together) to what I'm able to do now!  YIPPEE!
