Resistance Is Futile!

My geek seems to be showing this week in my titles. That's ok, I have geek pride.

I'm really excited to show these nails this week.  I finished them off this afternoon, got the pictures taken, edited and watermarked and now it's time to get down to business!

The idea for these are not completely original. They were a special request base on an element of a previous design I had done for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge in 2012. Specifically, Day 22: Inspired by a Song. The song I chose was Rollin's Band "Disconnect. You can go back my original blog post to see the original design, and the circuit board nail that was the inspiration for the special request! I decided to follow that basic color scheme and add a little bit more detail.

Now onto the pictures!

I struggled a little bit with editing the design. It was hard to not make it tooo busy.  Here's a macro shot of one of the nails.

You can see that some of the little microbeads bled the tiniest bit - but in this context - that actually added to the technical look. Overall I'm happy with how these came out, and I think it is way cooler looking than the original circuit board nail that I did. Not that the original was bad, but I'm happy that I was able to come up with something new to add to the design!

I normally don't work on custom orders until the $$ comes in but this time I decided to make an exception because I think the idea is unique enough that even if the promised payment never comes, it just may sell on E-bay. Heck, depending on the overall response, I may keep this in my regular rotation!

UPDATE: Payment has been received and the set has shipped out. I'd love to get some feedback on whether I should make another set to sell. Would *you* buy these?

I hope you enjoyed today's design! Have a groovy day!!
