Week of Geek Day 5: Doctor Who Nails


I don't know how familiar American readers will be with Doctor Who but here in the UK pretty much everyone is aware of it. It's been running on the BBC since 1963 which makes it the longest running Sci-Fi series in the world and you could definitely tag it with 'cult favourite'. Since 2005 they've been filming it in the city where I go to Uni and live for most of the year but so far I haven't spotted them filming anywhere. 

However, they filmed a bit for BBC's Sherlock in the University when I was driving past with friends one night and stopped to get a closer look. A security guy came up to the car and we asked what was going on, when he said they were filming, I blurted out 'IS IT DOCTOR WHO?'. It wasn't! 
AND I walked right through the set of Killer Elite last summer. If I knew Jason Statham and Robert De Niro were in the area I would have stuck around a while.

10 nerd points go to the first person to tell me what TARDIS stands for. No cheating please!


Pinky to thumb: 'Nebula nail', the TARDIS, Dalek, 'Nebula nail', Doctor Who logo.



I used: 
George - Bloom as a base for all the nails. Collection 2000 - Moonlight Shine for all the outlines. BYS - Glittering Purple, Gosh - Holographic and Models Own - Juicy Jules for the Nebula Nails.

  2. Great nails! I love Doctor Who, I think it's become increasingly popular in the US lately since they play it on BBC America, and we can watch it on Netflix. Great show!

    1. Cult Nails, which Sammy has linked on the right, has a color called Time Traveler that might be up your alley. ;) Or you could always go for the one she has listed as the blue she used in this post.

  6. The new Dr. Who is one of my top five favorite shows ever! I just caught up on your last couple of posts, and they really make me wish I was better at painting designs free hand. Pokemon and Star Trek are also among my favorite things, so I'm loving this whole week!
