Guess what I've got today? More Doctor Who Nerd Lacquer!!
This crazy-Matt-gif is becoming a thing, isn't it? I love it. Today's polish is Regeneration, an orange jelly base with tons of different sizes of gold, yellow, and orange glitter packed in.
Since I'm done watching all of Eleven's episodes, I'm working on going back and watching series 1-4 with Nine and Ten. Since I'm watching Nine right now, I figured it was only fair to include a little Eccleston. ;) Relevant, I promise. What is regeneration, you ask?
Here's a tip: don't shoot a girl while she's regenerating!
I used three thin coats of Regeneration for full coverage, topped with one thick coat of Seche Vite for a smooth finish. These photos are in the lightbox.
Unfortunately, I quickly came to the realization that this polish looked absolutely horrible on my skin tone; it looks better in photos than in person though. My skin hates oranges like the Doctor hates pears. I quickly came to this conclusion about this polish:
Fandom crossover WIN. The combination of Nerd Lacquer and Doctor Who is just too awesome to not like, even if the polish in question looks like a dog vomited on my fingers against my skin tone. You can bet I'll be wearing it again, quite possibly on Christmas day as I mourn the loss of Matt Smith.
Just to see if it made things better, I matted it with one coat of Essie Matte About You. The Doctor still hates pears.
So, what are your thoughts on this polish? I like it in theory, but it just looks awful on my skin. Ah well, can't win them all! Now the most important question: who is your favourite Doctor?? I haven't seen all of new Who yet; I've watched
almost all of Nine's episodes as of last night, and in all fairness I haven't really seen enough of Ten to judge, but I think that Eleven will always be my favourite, since he was my first Doctor. I'll be super sad to see him go in the Christmas special, but at the same time I'm excited to see who will be cast as Twelve! Opinions; let me hear them! :)
