Simple Steampunk

Hi everyone!!  So, when I woke up today the sun was shining, and it was even super warm out!  So I decided to grab some holos.  As soon as the second step of my mani was completed, I happened to glance out the window and saw one of the dreariest of days.  Dark, cloudy, raining ... blah!  So, without the sun to make the holo shine, I didn't feel too horrible about covering it up!

I started off with two coats of Chirality Cu2+, a deep teal holographic.  The formula was extremely rich, and it was very nearly a one coater.

I then used a wedge sponge with Chirality Apollonia, a deep purple holographic, to create a gradient.  I love the way these two colors blended together.  I followed with one coat of SV.

I then used Barry M Silver Foil with Cheeky plate CH-33 for the gear design.  I finished with one last coat of SV.

I really like the way this turned out.  It's been ages since I've done a full stamp mani, and I guess I had kind of missed it!

I hope you all enjoyed it!  Happy Painting!!
