Here's a technique I've been wanting to try for a while: watercolor nails! Supposedly you paint spots of color on the nail and then just drip acetone on them to get a beautiful watercolor effect. It didn't actually work that well- there was much poking and cursing and I used way more acetone than it was supposed to require. I'll have to go look up the original tutorial, because I wasn't doing something right.
The color combination, however, makes me happy- and was inspired by my sweet new shoes!
