NOTD: Ube Swirl :P

Hey guys
So i got the hang of the marbling business and this is my first offical marble manicure :)

Since this is marbling, not all of the patterns will look the same. They actually dont look very similar except for the colors I used *which will be listed below*

They just kinda look like swirls, and because of the colors i used. Hence the name "Ube Swirl" (Where are my filipinos at? :D) Well Ube is a delicacy in the Philippines and its VERY commonly used in all types of desserts. Its used in cakes, shakes, ice cream, you name it, and its probably been done :) If you guys are unfamiliar with Ube, the english name of it is Purple Yam. Its REALLY good but i digress.
