Crumpet's Nail Tarts - Geek Week

Yes my dear readers.  This is by far and away one of the weeks I was looking forward to the most!  We all know where it’s going to go right?  I have a love for so many pop culture things but by far and away I like the geeky shows and books the most.  Sherlock, The Walking Dead, Firefly, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog, Lord of the Rings, Supernatural, The Hunger Games (books not movies), Harry Potter (books not movies), Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Arrow… Do I really need to continue?  I think you get the idea!  Anyway I did not mention the one that has the biggest piece of my heart and that’s Doctor Who of COURSE!  So today you’ll get to see a homage to the 11th Doctor (I’ve been wanting to do this one for awhile but never had a good time or reason to).

Now, the 11th Doctor (played by Matt Smith) was not necessarily my favorite Doctor.  But, I grew to love him despite a rocky beginning.  By the end I was just as sad and cried just as hard to see him regenerate as with earlier Doctors.  *sniffles* Ah the feels. Ok enough of that!  Onto the nail art!

Bow ties are cool!  I knew the minute I saw this stamp that it would become part of an 11th Doctor nail art look!  I’m sure that it’s not meant to be bow ties (it comes from a Christmas-themed plate) but it’s so very like the red bow ties that the 11th Doctor wore so well that I could not resist.

To get this look I started by painting my fore and middle fingernails in a plain white (I used Sinful Colors – Snow Me White, I know I know it’s not indie but I do use mainstream white and a few other plain colors for stamping and such right now).  I then painted my ring and pinkie fingernails with A Study in Polish – Not Our Division.  I let that dry a bit then I came back in and on the first two fingers I stamped the “bow tie” design from the Cici & Sisi – Christmas 2014 plate using Octopus Party Nail Lacquer – Universal Loner.  On the last two I stamped a star design from Bundle Monster – BM20 in silver (Sally Hansen – Silver Sweep, don’t judge!).  Of course I couldn’t stop there.  I needed to add an awesome 11th Doctor profile and a TARDIS vinyl from YouPolish!  Top coat the whole thing and voila, a fitting homage to the 11th if I do say so myself!

I was really happy with how this one turned out.  Don’t forget to check out the InLinkz below to see the rest of the amazing nail art that is turning up for Geek Week!

Until next time may your days be filled with Glitter and Flakies!

Christmas Nail Art Roundup!

Some polishes may have been provided for previous review

I decided that this year I would save all my holiday manis of the year to share with you in one post.  I know that I do quite a lot of swatch posts but I do actual nail art as well and while I’m no genius at it I do like to have fun with different combinations and I’ve been practicing some freehand stuff as well!

I hope you enjoy and also be sure to check out the inlinkz at the bottom to see a lot of other awesome bloggers and their holiday manicures!

There you have the looks I’ve done for this holiday season!  I had hoped to do more and I think next year I’m going to increase my goal!  But I’m pretty happy with this group of nail art looks.

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Holidays and all the best in the New Year!
