NerdLacquers Doctor Who polishes.

So I found NerdLacquer on Etsy. (click her name to go to her shop.)
She makes Doctor Who inspired polishes! (she sells out often, you can convo her or wait for it, she will get them back in stock)
I had to have them based on the names alone. I wanted more, but you and all...I will save up to get more, eventually.

So here are the ones I got:

The one in the square bottle was a freebie she threw in, because her store has gotten more hits than she's used to, so shipping was slow, but they are worth the wait. :)

"Don't blink. Don't even blink.
Blink and you're dead.
They are fast. Faster than you can believe.
Don't turn your back...
 don't look away...
 and DON'T blink."

Obviously from Blink. The episode that started my obsession with all things Whovian. My boyfriend said "I want you to watch this with me." After seeing this episode, I IMMEDIATELY went to netflix and watched every episode available. I even went on daily motion and found where I could see older ones. I've now seen every episode from the 3rd Doctor on.
This is Don't Blink a Macro bottle shot:
And I can't decide which I like it better over, This is Don't Blink over black, then over white.

 "Do you have a name?"
"Seven hundred years and finally he asks..."
"What do I call you?"
"I think you call me...Sexy."
"Only when we're alone."
"We are alone..."
"Oh. Come on then, Sexy."

This scene is from one of my favorite episodes of Doctor Who. The episode is called The Doctor's Wife, it's about the TARDIS becoming human. It's very sweet. The line "What makes you think I'll give you back?" makes me cry.

This is I Think You Call Me...Sexy. Macro bottle shot:
Over Frostbite, then 3 coats by itself. I like it better by itself.

Doctor: Rose, you've got to stop this, you've got to stop this now! You've the entire vortex running through your head, you're gonna burn! 
Rose: I want you safe, my Doctor. Protected from the false God. 
Dalek: You cannot hurt me. I am immortal. 
Rose: YOU ARE TINY! I can see the whole of time and space, every single atom of your existence, and I divide them. Everything must come to dust. All things. Everything dies.

Another one of my favorite episodes; The Parting of Ways. This is where we say goodbye to the 9th Doctor. I loved Eccleston, but Tennant quickly made up for it. Also, another brilliant line from that episode, "New teeth...thats weird." Though, I am not sure if this was the inspiration for this polish. The wording is a little different. This polish makes me think of Rose (mainly because of the pink glitter). Still a spectacular and very moving scene.

 All of Time and Space, macro bottle shot:
over China Glaze Re-freshment (pardon the angry cuticle), and 3 coats alone.
Another I like better alone.

This one she sent me because shipping took a little longer than expected. I was antsy to get my polishes, but I was perfectly fine waiting. This polish didn't have a name, all it had on it was ╘c so I can only assume it is a franken that didn't make the cut. Let me tell you. I love this polish. Bright blue and black square glitter, and gold & blue micro glitter in a forest green base THAT FLASHES PINK!!!!! You read that right, GREEN THAT FLASHES PINK!!!

You can kinda see a little bit of the pink in this is subtle. There is so much going on in this polish. It is great!

This is alone, and over Orly Enchanted Forest.
Again, this one looked better alone.

All of them were somewhat sheer to begin with but all built up nicely with 3 coats and were all perfectly smooth with 1 coat of SV on top. Drying time was normal. Wear was great (3 days, which is longer than I normally keep polish on and would have lasted longer, I am sure.)

So thats it. Those are my NerdLacquers. I will be looking forward to making another order.


  1. So Gorgeous! I cannot wait to get mine!! Beautiful swatches!

  2. DOn't blink over WHite! I Love!

    I prefer the rest on their own though. Such gorgeous polishes. And ohhh wee,, a freebie that's gorgeous too, sounds amazing!
