I’ve done this design before for the theme futuristic. The first time around I wanted to stick bits of circuit board to my nails, I mentioned this to a friend and before I knew I was the proud owner of three dead mobile phones. More for my collection!


I gently pried little components off the circuit boards with pliers. I stamped with BM-415 and then stuck on the little pieces randomly with quick dry topcoat (Seche Vite).

These were fun to make, especially the discovery of the yellowish electronic tape and the tiny little weird piece on the index finger. I dismantled everything I could get out of these phones, they’ve been recycled in a different way.

    Takes the stamping version of this to a whole other level, I love it!

  6. Wow! I am amazed at how well this worked. Now I know what to do with my old broken phone, hehehe! 🙂

    • Be careful tho Kerry at one point I had my finger stuck in the phone case, because it would come apart! There were sharp bits and one piece smelt really weird. So that went in the bin quickly.

  7. Super cool! I love the big piece on your ring finger!
