GOT Polish - White Background with Illamasqua Swirls

Hi Goddesses

Two nail art posts in one day!  Here's a lovely swirly thing I did a couple of weeks ago.

For my white base, there was only one choice - OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.  I've been obsessed with it since it came out, and I don't really see that ever changing.

For the pattern, I was desperate to use one of my new nail art brushes - the 21 Dance.  It served itself and me really well.  It's got a heavier heft than most brushes, and I liked that.  It also gave me as much control as I wanted.

For the swirls I chose 3 Illamasquas which have been sitting in the untried pile since I bought them on offer last summer - 
Obsess - the bright pink
Velocity - the stunning greyish purple
Vice - the burgundy

Previously, when I've done swirls, I've left no visible background, but as that would have defeated the object of this prompt, I decided to create just one swirl, but to change the colour of the swirl part way through.

For added variety, I also made sure each colour had a chance to start the swirl.

I was really happy with how these turned out, and the possibilities are ENDLESS, endless I say!
