31 Day Challenge, Day 12-Stripes

After yesterday’s mess, I am so glad to say that I am thrilled with today’s nail art!  I promised a return to geekiness, and I had fun delivering on that promise.  So, without further ado, I present a Doctor Who themed stripe mani!




In case you can’t tell since these are not 100% accurate to the actual costumes, I have the pattern of the 5th Doctor’s trousers on my index finger, the 4th Doctor’s ridiculously long scarf flowing about in space on my middle, 11’s shirt and suspenders from The Impossible Astronaut on my ring finger, and the pinstripes from 10’s brown suit on my pinky.  I don’t normally break things down quite like this, but I used so many colors (and mixes) that I think a list for each finger might be best.

Index: Essie Limo-scene, Essi In Stitches, Kleancolor Red, No7 Peachy Keen, Maybelline Color Show Moss, Bourjois Paris So Lacque Lime Catwalk

Middle: Essie Meet Me at Sunset, LynBDesigns Time and Relative Dimension in Space, Zoya Louise, Maybelline Color Show Moss, Flower Go With the Flow-er, Barry M Lychee, Maybelline Color Show Electric Yellow

Ring: Model’s Own Blueberry Muffin, Kleancolor Pastel Purple, Kleancolor Love Affair, Essie Blanc

Pinky: Zoya Louise, Kleancolor Pastel Blue

Pretty extensive color usage for me.  Even threw in a few that I barely ever touch (like Peachy Keen).  Below is how it all originally looked, by the way.  But after taking a few pictures I decided to add ‘buttons’ to 11’s shirt and another stretch of 4’s scarf.  Almost added a bowtie to 11 but decided not to.  I mostly wanted patterns, after all, not representations of the clothing itself (the scarf being the exception, of course).


I am glad that I made those additions, even if you can see more of the gorgeous Time and Relative Dimension in Space on the original version.  That’s why I posted this picture.  I wanted to show off the pretty sparkly blue.  Have I ever mentioned that I absolutely LOVE polishes by LynBDesigns?  If I had more money I would buy them all.

Anyway, moving on.  Tomorrow is Embrace Your Geekness Day, and I fully intend to participate.  However, because the challenge for tomorrow is animal print, I will not be combining those manis.  So another double post tomorrow.  Yay!
