The Digit-al Dozen Does: Metal - Metal Plates

Metal?!?!?  I wasn't thrilled about this theme.  I figured that I wouldn't know what to do and end up with a week of justifying why glitter (everyday) counts as "metal".  Even when I sat down to start working on my designs I still wasn't feeling the theme.  Then I thought of a fantastic idea, that you will see later in the week, and the simple designs I came up with started looking really interesting!  The point is...I am feeling much better about this theme!

Day One - Metal Plates


This design was simple to create!  I started with one coat of Essie No Place Like Chrome.


I added the outline of my plates using the basket weave pattern on W112 and Nails Inc. Black Taxi.


I added my screws using Black Taxi and my smallest dotting tool.  There were way too many dots to add which made it difficult to keep them the same size.  At first this bothered me, but then I said whatever, it still looks pretty cool with out the perfectly sized dots!




There is just something that I really love about this design!  It is so shiny and the plates look so interesting!  Bring on the metals!
