Industrial gears layered fauxnad

Hi Kids!
I am super excited to post this fauxnadicure! I used Claire's Mood Nail Polish in Daring/Innocent. These show very well on my nails and the goldenrod to gray gradient going on under my stamps just makes this mani very cool in real life! And to think- I originally had SH Wet Cement as the base and changed it because it was goopy, resulting in sub-par application. I am so glad I changed it, even though at the time, I thought it a huge pain in the butt!

The outcome of this fauxnadicure is quite different from my usual nature/garden themed manis. I like how it all came together...especially since I had 2 fails before this. With all the new plate I have, I'm more than a little amped out with image overload. So many images...never enough time. I wish I had it in me to call off work just so's I can stamp all night. :(

All pictures taken outside sun, shade, and different locations so as to bring out the many "moods" of this polish. Be warned...I had an awful time cleaning up the Konad Black Special Polish. It stained my cuticles something fierce. I don't usually use the Konad polish, however, the circuitry stamp on Konad M70 wasn't playing nice with my usual black stamping polish, Color Club, Where's The Soiree?.
Anyway, as usual, all pictures are clickable for giant view.






































































































































3 coats Claire's Mood Polish, Daring/Innocent
fauxnad plates- T30, T04, P07
BM plates- BM12, BM15, BM03
Konad plates- M70, M73
dotting tool 

Stamping Polishes- Konad Black Special, Sally Hansen Aqua and Gold Chrome, China Glaze Millennium and  ChG 2030 frankened to a warm peach pink.

The "gears" you see are actually stylized flowers from the Bundle Monster plate BM03. If you're wondering how I used Konad plate M73... I used a partial image from the musical stamp, specifically- the piano keys. haha!
Anyway...am I posting too many pictures?
