Nails Inspired by Amelia Pond

I’m way more excited about this post than I should be.

I love Dr. Who, and even though I miss the Rose days (and I don’t want to talk about how much I miss David Tenant’s eyebrows), Amy Pond’s nails cannot be bested. I don’t normally notice things like character’s nail color, but girl has nail varnish going on all over time and space. I’m serious!

I spent a good chunk of last week going through my polish collection, snipping screen shots, and photographing my nails more frequently than usual. This is what I have to show for it. I present you with my favorites by episode name and real life nail color I own.

The Time of Angels // Essie’s Merino Cool

Day of the Moon // L’Oreal’s Because You’re Worth It

The Big Bang // Rimmel’s Burgundy Flirt

The Pandorica Opens // Essie’s Tart Deco

Curse of the Black Spot // Maybelline Colorshow’s Iced Queen

The Wedding of River Song // Wet n Wild’s Under Your Spell

I know a lot of them aren’t spot on, but that’s why they’re inspired by the glorious nails of Amy Pond. With the new season coming up soon, I can only hope that she won’t have gone off the polish because I look forward to them every episode. If I was a true Dr. Who fan I’d try an eyebrow tutorial on the tenth doctor’s brow but there’s no one good enough to pull that one off. Even David Tenant can barely control them.

    This is so fantastic! I can’t believe I’ve never noticed her fabulous nails until now! I love everything about what you did here.

    PS. “But girl has nail varnish going on all over time and space” cracked me up!

    This was amazing Taylor! I didn’t realize you were going to do so many of them! It looks great.

    I’m gonna pour a little of my fresca out for Ten and his eyebrows.

  3. She had a bright Tardis blue on the episode we watched today! Haha, I noticed the nails straight off! My boyfriend is the Doctor Who fan, so I’m afraid I don’t know what the episode was called, but it was about a hotel where all the rooms were different people’s bad dreams?

    Good post Tay, even though I’ve expressed my concern about your obsession with Miss Amy ;)

  5. […] Essie Nail Polish in Merino Cool // It’s no secret that I love grurples and greiges, and this is probably my favorite. It was a close tie between this one and Master Plan. I like that it’s a little darker while still coming off neutral. Nice and versatile. […]
