Steampunk Warehouse

Today I did a bit of steampunking.  I started with a base of Picture Polish Warehouse and BarryM Gold Foil Effects.
Stamped with the new Messy Mansion MM43 plate in black, gold and copper, and added some watch parts.
The largest watch part was too reflective on it's own so I stamped over it.
This is of course totally impractical but it was fun to do and lasted surprisingly well.  I don't think it's something I'm brave enough to wear while cooking, cleaning or washing my hair.

Lilypad Lacquer A Balt Out Of The Blue

Lilypad Lacquer A Balt Out Of The Blue is blue holo perfection!  It's smooth, rich and has just the right amount of scattered holo that doesn't dull the blue. 
It applies perfectly.  This is two coats with top coat.  It's almost a TARDIS blue :)
The holo is visible indoors but the rainbows really come out to play in the sun.
I was worried the colour was so rich that it would stain but I had no staining with Orly Bonder as my base coat.
I love our Aussie indies :)

Chipped nails

I painted my nails last night and for the first time in ages I left it on.  My stubby broken middle nail is starting to catch up so it doesn't look too weird.  Soon I'll be able to file a few mm of the rest and they should all match again :)

I've been wanting to try the Moyou Sci-fi 05 plate for a while now.  I wanted a classic gold on green circuit board look with a twist.  So I used Serum No5 Twilight Sparks as the base colour, it glows in the dark :)  I was so keen to stamp I didn't get any photos of Twilight Sparks first and I haven't tried a shot in the dark yet but it glows green.
The stamping polish is a Mundo de Uñas gold. Unfortunately with the gold shimmer in the base colour the stamping didn't stand out as much as I wanted.
Twilight Sparks dries to a slightly rough matte finish but a top coat really brings out the shimmer.

My husband said I chipped my nails.  I think he was being punny :P
