VIDEO TUTORIAL AT THE END OF THE POST!
So this mani was *exceptionally* difficult to photograph because I used four different polishes, but each of the four polishes shifts to at least one entirely different colour, and so that means there's actually a minimum of 8 different colours to capture here. Pretty much impossible for a one-person team, and by that I mean I don't have a whole camera crew helping me out like those Russian nail bloggers do (I continue to believe this until proven otherwise).

The nail art itself is pretty straight forward... but look at that multi-chrome... droool.
I realized that peeling up the cyclone vinyls around all the outer and inner 'edges' of the swirl first (I used a random metal cuticle tool) before pulling them up and off the sheet ensures that it doesn't snap back at you or get tangled. You need to be careful of how you take them off the sheet as it is easy to ruin it if you recklessly just peel it up. I learned by ruining the first one I pulled up, teehee.
And if you're wondering how I make my video tutorials, I recently released a video showing you exactly what I do! Check it out on YouTube.
