NerdLacquer Pinin' for the Fjords

Good morning! Today's a Monty Python's Flying Circus kind of day.  A Dead Parrot Sketch kind of day.

"...And when I bought [the Norwegian Blue Parrot] not half an hour ago, you assured me that its lack of movement was due to being tired and shagged out after a long squawk."
"It's probably probably pinin for the fjords."
"Pinin for the fjords, what kind of talk is that?"

Five coats of NerdLacquer Pinin' for the Fjords.  My bottle of Pinin' for the Fjords is definitely more purple than Norwegian Blue, but it does contain Norwegian Blue glitter, purple glitter, and small specks of silver glitter.

NerdLacquer Entirely Unlike Tea

How hard is it to get a cup of tea while traveling through the universe?  It's pretty hard as Arthur Dent found out in the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.  The Nutrimatic Drink Dispenser, when asked to produce a drink, "makes an instant but highly detailed examination of the subject's taste buds, a spectroscopic analysis of the subject's metabolism, and then sends tiny experimental signals down the neural pathways to the taste centers of the subject's brain to see what is likely to be well received."  The end result is a cup of liquid that is "almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea."

Today's polish is what that tea would look like, were it a nail polish and painted onto my fingers.

Pictured on my tips is three coats of NerdLacquer Entirely Unlike Tea. This polish contains silver and iridescent glitter suspended in a nude pink base.  It's an amazing nude with a kick of glitter. It's almost, but not quite, entirely unlike most nudes.

NerdLacquer All of Time and Space

The last polish I have to share with you this week is based off a quote from the Doctor at the start of the fifth series and beginning of the Eleventh Doctor.

So... All of time and space. Everything that ever happened or ever will.  Where do you want to start?
I'm not up to date on Series 7 and looking for clips this past week has induced a severe doctor nostalgia.

On my nails are five coats of NerdLacquer All of Time and Space.  Yes, five coats.  Why so many?  The mint base is very sheer in this polish and I wasn't in the mood for visible nail line. Once you get a few coats on the nail bed, the additional layers add depth to the silver micro glitter and the fuchsia medium hexagonal glitter.

Here's the big question for you though.  Does this polish make you want to take off in the middle of the night with a raggedy man?

NerdLacquer Don't Blink

Weeping Angels are by far the most terrifying creatures in the universe.  They're as old as the universe, no one really knows where the come from, and they were once called the lonely assassins.  The first episode they appear in is during Series 3, the same episode where we learn that time is actually a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey ... stuff.

The Doctor explains Weeping Angels much better.


Pictured here is three coats of NerdLacquer Don't Blink.  It's a stone grey polish littered with pieces of white and grey glitter giving it the same appearance as a Weeping Angel.
