I’ve been wanting to do steampunk nails for a long time, because I like the style.
This steampunk nail design is not what I initially planned to do. I was aiming to achieve an aged and rusty brutal look, but I ended up with black lace :)
The base color is China Glaze Kalahari Kiss, a strange not-your-ordinary nude. I never wear the Kiss solo, but I like to use the polish for nail art, because the color is quite unique. As for the steampunk design, everything is hand painted except for the black lace and two numbers, “7” and “6”, as those are water decals.
I hope you liked the steampunk nail art :) As for me, I enjoyed doing it, and I’m sure you’ll see more designs inspired by the style. Thank you for looking!
