Water Mar-BOO-led

Hiya, tis' the season for all things Halloween!  My lovely friend, Gini over at Sassy Paints, heralded my call for another challenge and introduced me to the Nail-Aween Nail Art Challenge hosted by datyorkLOVES... I could not, not join up!!  My trusty challenge calendar is getting filled up for October and I couldn't be more excited!!

Up first is water marble - not my favorite technique - it looks gorgeous when other people do it - I've just had little to no success pulling it off - okay so I've only tried once, but still....  I chose Halloween-y colors for this, hope you like my somewhat successful water marble!
