Did you say TARDIS-themed polish!?
Today I’m bringing you something a bit different. I’ve compiled a group of TARDIS inspired polishes for you to peruse. My goal here isn’t to combat these polishes against one another, but rather to show you, the reader/future purchaser, what you can expect from these polishes. So, let’s get started!
Nail Pattern Boldness – Bigger on the Inside
First up is Bigger on the Inside made by Nail Pattern Boldness. It’s a bright blue jelly with silver micro glitter. The formula on this one is great. It applies with all the ease of watching 6 episodes of Doctor Who in one sitting. I have previously swatched this polish, along with the other polishes in the collection. But my photo taking skills have since been elevated, so these are new photos of this polish. If you are interested in the original post - clicky here. The above shows 2 coats with no underwear. This polish, along with the rest of the Time Traveler collection can be purchased at the Nail Pattern Boldness Etsy shop, or at Llarowe.

Lucky 13 Lacquer – You Sexy Thing
Matted vinyl deliciousness.
Sexy, isn’t she? This is You Sexy Thing by Lucky 13 Lacquer. It is a bright cobalt blue shimmer with a fantastic (read it in Nine’s voice!) formula. I have previously swatched this polish, along with 3 other polishes from Lucky 13 Lacquer’s Last of the Time Lords collection. You can view this polish, along with the others, by clicking here. The photos all show 3 coats, no underoos. You can purchase this polish, and all the others in the collection here at the Lucky 13 Lacquer shop.

Cult Nails – Time Traveler
This one takes me back to Nine and Ten, with a grungier TARDIS. Eleven has a mighty blue Blue Box. So Cult Nails Time Traveler is a nice stray from the norm. The formula was really superb on this one. It was a tad thick…but the good kind of thick. The kind of thick you look for. Time Traveler is part of the Cult Nails Super Powers collection. The photos show 2 coats of Time Traveler with no underwear. This polish, along with tons of others, can be purchased here.

Digital Nails – My Other Car is a TARDIS
Oh yes, I did in fact matte it.
Doing this post was so perfect, because I had been stalking this polish in Digital Nail’s Etsy shop since the moment she released it. I finally had an excuse to buy it! And I’m really glad I did! My Other Car is a TARDIS is a bright blue jelly that will deceptively make you think that you won’t be able to get rid of VNL. LIES I TELL YOU! To achieve the above look, I did 2 thin coats followed by a 3rd dabbed on coat. I’m a big fan of the depth going on in this one. It’s Idris approved! You can purchase this polish here. (Hint: Raphaelle miiiiiiight have some other Doctor related goodies in her shop.)

I Think You Call Me…Sexy
Yes. Yes I do call you sexy. Here we have Nerd Lacquer’s I Think You Call Me…Sexy, derived from the amazing Neil Gaiman episode - The Doctor’s Wife. I previously swatched I Think You Call Me…Sexy, along with the other 2 polishes in the Madman with a Box collection. You can check that out here. As I state in that post, I had no issue with application, but the smell…..I could feel the fumes killing my brain cells. And it never actually dried…even giving 30 minutes between thin coats. What you are left with IS stunning….but the fumes and dry time must be considered. The photos all show 3 coats, no undies. Sadly, no buying information because…you know.

Dollish Polish – It’s Bigger on the Inside
Matted…because of reasons.
The last polish that I have to show you is It’s Bigger on the Inside by Dollish Polish. It’s a stunning bright blue shimmer base with silver micro glitter. And application was equally as stunning. I only wish that I could have gotten one of the old paper label designs…ya know, the one with the tiny TARDIS on the bottle. Oh wells, can’t win ‘em all. The photos above all show 2 coats, sans underwear. You can buy Dollish Polish here. It’s Bigger on the Inside is still in stock right now, but I can’t say how long that will be true.

So, what do you think about all of the TARDIS beauties? Do you own any of these/are you going to buy some, now that you’ve seen the examples of their sexiness? Also, I will continue to add TARDIS inspired indies as I find them. If you know of, or discover any that you would like to see on here, please leave me a comment about it. I will do my best to get my hands on a bottle. I test ‘em out so you don’t have to!
