NotD - Doctor Who Day Two - TARDIS

Today I chose the TARDIS as the inspiration for my nail art. Don't we all love her to bits? Who needs a Chameleon Circuit, anyway?
This TARDIS manicure took a lot of mixing colours and using brushes that aren't meant to be used for nail art. How does Melissa do it? I will give them a few more tries, but I will definitely get some proper nail art brushes.



I used these products for today's manicure:



  • Sally Hansen miracle cure
  • CND Ridge Out
  • custom blue as base colour, two coats, looks so much TARDIS-ier in RL
  • custom blue-grey for the shading
  • Spooky Nail 2 in 1 nail tattoo liner in black
  • Seche Vite
I forgot to take a photo after applying the base colour, so this is the manicure before adding the outlines with the nail art pen and striping brush:


And the finished nail:


If you had a TARDIS, where and when would you go first?
I'd go back in time to ancient Italy, I'd love to hear real Latin and Etruscan!

Thanks, Mighty Lambchop. I was converted quite thoroughly by a friend. :-P
