It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Futuristic and I am so excited for it! I think this might be the first time I have actually finished all five looks ahead of time – I just had so many fun ideas for this theme! For the first one, I have done some nail art inspired by one of my favourite series – Star Trek.
Star Trek is the perfect futuristic show – space travel, exploration, and a near-utopian Earth. To get this look, I used Zoya Darcy and America, and Sinful Colors Endless Blue to create angled gradients across my nails. I added a coat of Elevation To The Top! for a light holographic effect.
On my middle finger, I applied gel polish carefully with a dotting tool and filled it in using Beauty Big Bang’s holographic powder. I also added some of their rose gold powder at the sides, but it’s not very visible.
For the colours I used, I was inspired by the poster from the Star Trek Beyond movie. We have one stuck up in our living room! That poster was strongly based on this one from the original Star Trek movie.
Star Trek has always been a part of my life. When I was 12, we had a fancy-dress farewell from my primary school. I dressed up as 7 of 9 and my dad even made me a Star Trek communicator to wear – and I still have it!
