Steampunk Nails

Short post today!  I attempted steampunk nails with my #nailquadsquad on Instagram.  And now two of them are contributors to Polish Etc!  So technically I can say they are blogger friends too!

Amy had a brilliant idea to do steampunk nails with the watch parts she acquired and sent to all of the quadlets.  I just recently learned about steampunk on pinterest when I saw the coolest steampunk watergun someone made from a cheap $1 watergun toy.  So I kind of knew what to go for.  Kind of a metallic dark look.  Honestly had no plan.  Just placed parts on my nails.  I think it came out pretty neat!  I used Orly Buried Alive for the base and on my accent nail I have half Buried Alive and half Essie's Licorice.

  1. Yay!!! Buried Alive is the perfect base for this. And love the new nail shape :)

    1. Thank you Amy!! I'm loving the new shape too!

  2. The base colour is really pretty and I love the design as well!
