Day 23 Inspired by a movie…

Yay two posts in one day is the only way to get back on track! When looking through my movies A Clockwork Orange jumped out and said “Pick me!”

Day 23 inspired by a song 2

At first I was just going to paint the eye on the white nail and leave the others orange. Then I remembered the watch parts I have and kind of chuckled to myself as this is orange with clockwork!! Ha ha I’m so funny! Also when I searched for images sometimes the eye is depicted as a gear, even better, less painting for me! I think I went overboard on the gears though, I forgot that less is more sometimes.

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!!
