Today I'm gonna show you something delicious! Yes I said delicious and no I don't advocate the eating of nail polish. Although I did see an episode of that show My Strange Addiction where the chick ate nail polish. My friend was all "Omg that's so bad for you!" and I was like "Noooo what a waste of polish!!". We can see where my priorities lie. Lay? Lie? Eh, grammar. Anyhow, today's mani is inspired by latte art. Incidentally I'm also submitting this for the one year anniversary contest over at Copy That, Copy Cat since I'm counting it as food related. Take a look!

After staring at entirely too many pictures of awesome latte art and making myself very hungry, I decided to use that for my contest entry idea. This was my first attempt at needle marbling a shape on purpose, usually I just plop polish wherever and see what happens. This is also my first contest entry so delicious fingers crossed! Aside from my horrible clean up job I am pretty proud of these. I don't know what it is about dark colors but for some reason I can never get it completely clean looking. Like I thought they were okay looking before I went to photograph them but then looking through the pics I was like wtf it's like I didn't even try. I need to just get over it and buy some pure acetone and the right shape brush. That or I'm just doing it wrong. What type of clean up methods do you guys prefer to use?
