Nail-Art-A-Go-Go - Day 18 - Sci-Fi

Hello again!  So, another day, another prompt - todays is one I was excited about straight away - Sci-Fi!  I knew that it would be a Doctor Who mani, but I didn't narrow it down any further until it came time to actually paint it.  In the end I decided to go with a galaxy mani, and dalek accent nail......

The dalek accent nail is actually based on a specific dalek, Dalek Sec, of the Cult of Skaro. For those who don't already know, these were 4 daleks created by The Emperor, whose job it was to basically 'think outside the box'.  To imagine, and explore new ways of killing, by thinking like the enemy - they even had individual names.  Dalek Sec was also the first, and only Dalek to become an experimental human-dalek hybrid.  (Ick, by the way, he was not a looker!)

I did cheat a little bit, and used a silver line under the eye-stalk, but you get the idea I hope!  Anyway, back to the mani. I got a little lost in my own geekery there........
So, the black background is, yes, you guessed it - Sinful Colors - Black on Black.  I sponged the galaxies on with a whole bunch of Kleancolor Metallics; Fuchsia, Aqua, Sapphire, Green and Pink, and the glitter is NYX - Spot Light.  (near-dupe: Barry M - Diamond Glitter)  I wanted them to be totally random, and I think I achieved that.  I'm not sure if I went a bit overboard with sponging on the thumb though, what do you think?
I don't really know, one minute I like it, the next minute I don't! I do like how some of the colours have blended to make new colours though. :) 
I really love how the index finger turned out though, and overall, this mani was a massive win for me.  I have a Dalek, I have bright colours, and I have glitter.  It doesn't get any better than that IMO! :D
Don't forget to check out the other mani's in the thumbnails below, I have a feeling today's will all be amazing!
