Digit-al Dozen Blue Week - Day 5

It's been a fantastic week doing Theme Week for our Digit-al Dozen Group!
I wanted to go out with a bang on this last blue mani - I do like it, but bangworthy? Eh...

One day I was swatching some blues and realized I had three blues all with the same finish and in the  same family and all just a shade or two off.  Thats when this idea was born. Here I've used (from cuticle, to middle to free edge) - Barry M Denim, Face of Australia You Blue Me Away, Maybelline Denim Dash.

I started with the base of Barry M Denim, then I cut some tape in a wave pattern and painted in You Blue Me Away. Waited for that to dry and did the last layer using more tape and Denim Dash.

Finished with a coat of Out the Door Top Coat.

I do like how it gives off a sort of giant water marble look.
