This is the third installment in my nerdy nails agenda (there are many more in the planning stages). These nails are the embodiment of one of my favorite if wackiest book series…the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy!
My thumb has three dolphins (famous for saying “goodbye and thanks for all the fish”), the second most intelligent species on earth. The first are mice.
From pointer to pinky: DON’T PANIC (as written large on the Hitchhiker’s Guide), the green blob alien from the cover, 42 (the answer to life, the universe, and everything), and Marvin (the paranoid android with a brain the size of a planet).
The base of the mani is a polish I got from the Sephora by OPI line sale, called 212-Sephora. Its a mix of glitter in a black/very dark brown base. It was opaque at 2-3 coats. I really like the mix of glitter! Brown, orange, green, and gold, with small glitter, medium orange flakes and glitter, and holo particles. It has an interesting shine! However, it was very gritty and needed two coats of top coat once I added my design to smooth it out.
- Black glitter base: Sephora by OPI – 212-Sephora
- Gold: Maybelline – Bold Gold
- Orange: Nail Art – Orange
- Green: Nail Art – Green
- Red: City Color – Red
- White: Julie G – White Orchid
- Grey: NYC – Sidewalkers
- Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
Enjoy! (And thanks for all the fish :-D) [Btw Doctor Who fans, do not worry…this Friday my 50th anniversary nails will go up! I’m wearing them right now. Technically they are nerdy, but I can post two nerd manis in one week if I want!]
