My eyes were drawn to the beautiful colours all mingling together and bouncing off each other and I had a thought (yes I know that's scary, me using my brain!). Last year I saw the most amazing multichrome water marble manicure and I've wanted to give it a go ever since, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to try it out.
So I went digging through my stash and gathered up my HITS and Ludurana multichrome polishes. I painted a base of Cult Nails Nevermore (the best black polish in the world) and just went a bit crazy with the multichromes in a small dish of warm water!
Please be kind as this is my first attempt at anything like this and I know its a long way from being perfect (especially my pinkie finger).
I thought the colours reflected the colours on the beetle quite well, what do you think?

|Tilting my fingers in slightly different positions reflected the different colours in the multichromes|
|Here you can see a slightly golden tone to the green swirl and more of a dark blue/teal colour as the background colour|
|Purple pops up at this angle|
|See the royal blue on the middle and ring fingers and on the index finger you can see copper, bronze and pink|
|This is the index finger showing the pinks, blues, bronze and green colours|

|This is my middle finger showing hints of teal and midnight blue as the background colours and the green swirl with a hint of gold highlight|
|This is my ring finger with a dramatic sweep of green and the royal blue and purple glinting through from behind|
|This is my pinkie and a bit of a water marble fail! I thought I'd show this so you can see it doesn't always go to plan lol ;-)|
