One of my favourite shows of all time is Doctor Who. It’s the longest running science-fiction show to date and something that’s as common as sliced bread in the UK. I’m a big sci-fi fan so I was instantly in love when I first discovered it. I decided that it was time to do some nail art dedicated to my favourite show, this not being a very difficult task since there are so many iconic images in this show. I did some thinking about which images I was going to choose and then I got right to it!
Take a look at what I created:
I’m so proud of these nails and extremely pleased with how they turned out. I thought the logo was going to be a stretch and it was rather difficult but so pleased with the end result. The shadowing on the TARDIS is also one of my favourites and the Cyberman too, although the latter looked better in person without the flash of my camera.
I can imagine that none of these images have meaning if you’re unfamiliar with the show so I lined up the images which were my inspiration for these designs.

- Thumb: the logo of Doctor Who
- Pointer finger: The outfit of Matt Smith, the current actor that is portraying the Doctor.
- Middle finger: The TARDIS, the ship of the Doctor.
- Ring finger: A Cyberman, one of the Doctor’s enemies.
- Pinky finger: Daleks, another one of the Doctor’s enemies. These guys are bad news!
I used A LOT of polishes to create this, here’s my very long laundry list:
NYC City Blackout, China Glaze Snow, China Glaze Spontaneous, China Glaze Light As Air, Essence You Belong To Me, Catrice Blue Cara Ciao, China Glaze Sunset Sail, Barry M Mushroom, H&M Blue, China Glaze Cheers To You, China Glaze Jitterbug, China Glaze Goin’ My Way, China Glaze Swing Baby, China Glaze Midnight Kiss, China Glaze Lighthouse and black, red and white nail art pens.
Next up: Harry Potter nails! And maybe Star Wars nails? Star Trek nails? Any suggestions?
