In my extreme excitement over the new season of Doctor Who coming up in about a month, I figured I would do a big 'ol nail art series showcasing my favorite episodes/characters/etc. I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!
So I figured I best start from the beginning, actually... my kid's FAVORITE part of the show (yes my little Violet is a Whovian just like her mama and I AM SO DAMN PROUD!)... The opening credits... time... space... tardis... you know what I'm sayin'?!
I hopped on over to my friend Jacki's blog Adventures In Acetone, and got clicky on her galaxy nails tutorial (you can view it here!), figured what better background for a tardis than the universe/galaxies/planets you know... stuff the doctor loves to save :D
I used a base coat of OPI Natural Nail base coat followed by my base color, Deborah Lippman Lady Sings The Blues. I figure this is a great base, it's dark blue and has blue and pale silvery glitter bits that could be what oh I dunno planets? stars? use that imagination, baby!
While that was still a bit tacky but not too much... I used Jacki's tutorial for the sponging of Hard Candy Beetle and a mixture of OPI Skull & Glossbones (1 drop to every 3 drops shooting stars) and China Glaze Shooting Stars. Lastly I took China Glaze Blue Sparrow (neon) and made light swirls all up over my galaxified (new word?!) nails!
Then my favorite part... the Tardis... or... Sexy, if you will ;P
I used a mixture of SinfulColors Midnight Blue, China Glaze Blue Sparrow, and L.A. Colours Sea Siren for a sweet sweet 'tardis blue'! I did the windows and print on the police box with OPI Alpine Snow and a VERY fine nail art brush!
Finished up with a good thick coat of Ozotic Elytra 528 !!!!!! holy moly!
Keep posted for more Doctor Who posts in my Doctor Who nail art series!!!!!!!!!
