NOTD: New Year's Firewrok's Inspired + Tutorial

I was going to try & figure out a way to make a fireworks-style water marble, but I didn't have time to play & experiment with polish to see what would work, and so I went at it freehand with a striper brush.  I used Orly Matte Vinyl as my base color, because initially I was going to leave the background matte - but I changed my mind.  For the firework bursts, I used China Glaze QT, OMG, IDK, DV8 & GR8, all from the OMG collection:
 


Here's the tutorial:
 
 
I thought I was going to have a quiet evening at home, but yesterday I got invited to a party!  Still debating if I should change my nails to match my outfit ... I'm a little nervous, I will only know a few people there, but I'm looking forward to it also =)
 
Thanks for reading,

  15. Wow! This looks amazing! Where do you get that long liner brush from? I live in Norway, so if you know of a website that carries tools like that, I would love to hear about it.
