Day 8 metallic….

Well today’s prompt was fun! A had a few ideas and then settled on a metallic skittle. The most gorgeous chrome polish ever, would have to be OPI “Push and Shove”, I love this stuff! I’ve used this as a base on three nails, it appears so very flawless because I have applied it over a layer of gel polish. As you might know “Push and Shove” shows up any imperfection or grooves in your nails, another way around this is to buff your nails.

Day 8 metallic

On the index finger I have applied a tiny piece of chain maille that I made, in a jewellry making phase that I went through. These 2mm rings were too small to be practical and I’ve been meaning to use this piece in nail art for a while now. On the other two fingers I’ve stuck down,with tiny blobs of Seche Vite, watch gears and parts that I got on Ebay. On the ring finger is a black “leather effect” polish that I got in a nail art kit and the most hard core studs! I don’t think you can see in this photo, but they are about 3mm high! So to me this is really Steampunk, we just need the steam!!

  1. i love when you use gears!

  2. I’ve never liked chains on nails until I saw this skittle! This mani is awesome! The gears are way cool too. Very steampunk.

  3. These are so cool and edgy! Man, I want to try something like this now.

    • Thanks Lisa, I was thinking if people want watch gears, maybe just ask you local watch repair shop? They might have some bits they don’t need. 🙂

    Coucou Michelle !
    Ce nail art, c’est tellement toi, c’est tellement créatif. Il n’y a que toi pour créer un nail art à partir de ces éléments, pour éviter la vulgarité et qu’en même temps cela soit drôle. Tu es unique. Bravo Michelle, vraiment.
