Nerd Lacquer Don't Blink

My name is Sarah, and I am a Doctor Who addict. (I'm a 10th Doctor gal, in case you were wondering.)

So when I saw this lovely beauty from Nerd Lacquer inspired by and named after the Weeping Angels from Doctor Who, I bought it immediately. It's called Don't Blink, but I can't reveal why. Spoilers! ;)

You guys know how much I love grey speckley polish -- my love for this type of nail polish was last discussed when I used Misa Grey Matters in a glitter gradient. Don't Blink is kind of like if you zoomed in close on Grey Matters, and then made a polish out of what you saw. That, plus extra glitter.


This polish has small dark grey and silver glitters in a sheer grey base. If I'm not mistaken, the smaller glitters are round shaped, which is a nice alternative to the regular hex shaped glitters! It also has small hex and large hex silver glitters that sort of choose to show up or not show up at random. I have no complaints though, even if you don't get any of the larger glitters, this polish is still mesmerizing and unique.


The Weeping Angels from Doctor Who are stone statues, and that is what this polish is meant to mimic. I think it does a great job. The texture on it is really incredible, and the color is a perfect pure, neutral grey.

It almost seemed like if I were to touch my nails, they will feel cold like stone.

Don't Blink applied very nicely, except for the trouble I had getting out some larger glitters to show you guys! It was easy to control and the smaller glitters went on evenly. It was also quite shiny on its own!


Bottom line: if you are a Who fan or a grey polish fan or both, put this puppy on your wishlist immediately!

Nerd Lacquer polish retails for $10. It can be purchased at the Nerd Lacquer Etsy shop or through Harlow and Co.

  6. This is one of my major lemmings from NerdLacquer (and not just because the Weeping Angels were one of the creepiest things imaginable imo) and your swatches are just making sure that I really really want it now. :D

  12. Just waiting for my bottle to show up! Thanks for the post, I love it even better now.

    I also ordered Entirely Unlike Tea, since it looks like a nice glittery neutral, if such a thing is possible.

    For those of you just lemming for it, she said that she has been picked up by ThinkGeek! How exciting!

    1. I did check ThinkGeek before posting this, but it seems they only have a single quad available right now and I think they are out of stock!

  14. I just found NerdLacquer recently and have yet to purchase any. This is one on my wishlist. I love how it has an almost wet look to it. And of course the Doctor Who reference is great. I'm really hoping to get a hold of I Think You Call Me...Sexy, too.

  16. Hi there! A fellow Doctor Who-fan (really, Ten is THE awesomest thing that ever happened to us) and a nailblogger is asking for your permission to use your pics for her own blog. Link to the source (that would be you) is standard. And the blogger is, well - me. :)
