Doctor Who – Death In Heaven
Series Eight Finale
So, Peter Capaldi’s first season as The Doctor has now finished and I decided I wanted to create a nail art look for the season’s finale. If you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know I’m a huge Doctor Who fan and this isn’t the first Doctor Who nail art I’ve created. You can see my other Doctor Who designs here and here.
I knew fairly early on when thinking about this design that I wanted to base it on the new opening sequence from this season, which goes through cogs and spirals and different coloured galaxies. I didn’t have much time to paint this design so I kept it pretty simple. On my thumb and ring finger I created a spiral with Roman Numerals on from the opening sequence and on my other fingers different coloured galaxies. On my index finger I created a pink galaxy, on my middle finger I created a bluey teal galaxy and on my little finger I created a purple galaxy.
As always I started with a base coat and since I knew I was going to be using glitter in this manicure I used Makeup Academy’s Peel Off basecoat. Then I painted all my nails black. I used A-England’s Camelot.
I started with my thumb and ring finger. Using a small nail art brush and a silver nail varnish, I used Barry M’s Silver Foil, I created a spiral coming out from the centre of my nail. Then I used a black to create little lines and ‘v’ and ‘x’ shapes in the spiral for roman numerals. I totally didn’t go in numerical order, I just placed what I could where it would fit.
And then on the other nails are the galaxies. I started by sponging some white, I used Zoya’s Snow White, on the nail and then sponged the other colours over the top to create a galaxy type effect.
I had a little bit of trouble getting the pink galaxy on my index finger to look right, so I used the most nail varnishes on this nail. The pinks I used to create my galaxy were Barry M’s Mediterranean, Barry M’s Flamingo Pink and A-England’s Iseult. I also added a tiny bit of Barry M’s Rose Quartz glitter.
The two colours I used to create the blue or teal coloured galaxy were Barry M’s Seaside and Essie’s Trophy Wife.
And the two colours I used to create the purple galaxy were A-England’s Avalon and Essie’s To Buy Or Not To Buy, which was on my Unfeatured Nail Varnish List.
Once I’d finished the sponging I took a small dotting tool and a white nail varnish, Zoya’s Snow White, and added some small white dots to create stars. And then I added China Glaze’s Fairy Dust to create even more stars.
And then I finished everything with a topcoat. And I’m currently using Glisten & Glow’s H K Girl Topcoat.
