Grinding those steampunk gears

It's been quite a while since I've used any stamping plates...

It's not that I don't like stamping because I actually love it, it's just that my favorite thing to do is free hand work and the only way to get better is to practice right? But for those times when I'm short on time I really love picking up my stamping plates and going to town and that's what happened this time :) 

I sat down to do my nails the other night and realized I only had right around an hour to get them finished. So I closed my eyes and reached into my untrieds pile and grabbed OPI German-icure by OPI. German-icure by OPI is a gorgeous vampy blackened burgundy that just seems to glow from within. I knew I wanted to do some gold stamping over it and the gear stamp BM-414 from Bundle Monster's newest 2013 'create your own' stamping set was begging to be used ;) I used Maybelline Color Show Bold Gold for the stamping and finished it off with some Poshe. I really love the finished product, check it out :) 

Oh and.... STEAMPUNK ALL THE THINGS!!! :)






Burgundy and gold just make the perfect pairing don't you think? I had forgotten how much I enjoyed stamping so I'm definitely going to be doing more in the future.

What do you all think?
Thanks so much loves :)
