The Digital Dozen does Colour Contrast - Day 4

I made it day 4. Yay. You know I've been off work for the last three weeks and I have really nothing to show for it, except my butt is a little fatter from sitting around on it for so long.  Turns out I had segments broken off my Tibia - the medial malleolus, as well as a fractured proximal phalange and there is definitely something dodgy about my Cuboid bone. So with probably three fractures in my foot and ankle I'm going to be wearing this cam boot for about another 4-5 weeks with no weight bearing on it during that time.  My poor husband must be getting so sick of me by now!

I did manage to get to my polish  table yesterday, so I quickly punched out two manis. I took this one off pretty much straight away so I could do the second one, which is a shame cause I really loved the effect and the two colours look amazing next to each other.  I can totally see why colour contrasts are also referred to as complementary colours.

Anyway, this was a simple radial drag marble.  I usually do these with a thin brush, but this time i did it with a pointy ended marbling tool, which meant it did gouge some lines through the layers of polish, but you probably wouldn't have noticed if I didn't say anything.
