Vintage Nails

Steampunk Stamping

So I finally received 2 parcels from Aliexpress, even though I purchased in September, then the seller cancelled my order without letting me know! Finally after much communication my plates were resent! 
I love the look of Steampunk nails and will get round to buying the little cogs and pieces to try with dipping powder encapsulating. But for now I thought I'd first try stamping. So the plate I've been waiting on is XY-Z21.
An unusal mix of images, from Pac Man to dollar signs, keys and the steampunk cogs.
I used another 3 plates to create my vintage look, plus some tiny half pearls.
You can just about make out my gold stamped  steampunk images, they didn't stand out as much as I'd hoped. But together with the cameo and red roses, I love the vintage look.
A fab plate that I'm glad to have (finally!)
And I will sure be using it again soon. I'll share the other plate and story next time.
Stay safe and much love....
