Current Indie Favourites #1 Digital Nails

I thought i would show you guys in Installments my favourite indie brands. Starting with Digital Nails!

Digital Nails is described by owner Raphaelle Yax as ‘Geek chic boutique Nail Lacquer hand made in Austin, TX’ and i couldn’t agree more! All of these polishes are based on some sort of pop culture or science/math, with Raphaelle saying in her shop announced that ‘I draw inspiration from all things geeky – science fiction tv shows, comic books, cartoons, video games, etc.’. This eclectic inspiration makes for super fun and cheerful lacquers with witty names. Unlike a like of brands, Digital Nails provides unique colour and glitter mixes you will not find anywhere else. Here are some polishes by Digital Nails:

Product Description by Digital Nails:

Pandorica is a black jelly polish with more spectraflair linear holographic pigment than you can shake a stick at. It doesn’t even need sunshine to scream OMG RAINBOWS, and those bad boys will pop out even in dim indoor lighting.Pandorica is inspired by the boy who waited, Rory Williams. The thing I love most about Rory is is unfaltering loyalty, and this polish was inspired by the episode(s)where he sat in front of the Pandorica, gaurding it for 2000 years while Amy was trapped inside. That’s some serious love, you guys.
Whether you’re a Whovian, like myself or just a fan of the crazypants glitters, this polish is positively perfect for any occasion, particularly if a handsome young man with two hearts and a penchant for saving the universe happens to ask you to come along and step into his bigger-on-the-inside blue police box. Hello, Sweetie!

You can find a ton of other Doctor Who inspired polishes in the Digital Nails etsy store including: Run, You Clever Boy, Ultimate Ginger, Bad Wolf, Timey Wimey, Oh,Fionna( i recommend), So Disco,Super Temp,Hello Sweetie,Petrichor and Wibbly Wobbly. Yep that is one Doctor Who fan girl! There are also a few more Doctor Who inspired polishes which are out of stock including Expelliarmus!( which could also count as a HP inspired polish).

Product Description by Digital Nails:

Hello fellow space geeks!I have for you the most holo-glitter-tastic green polish that ever existed in the history of ever. All hyperbole aside, this is one GREEN SPARKLY POLISH. And, even better, it is a terrible pun based on one of my favorite people.deGrasse’s greener is a terrible play on words, and also an homage to one of my very favorite humans ever, Neil deGrasse Tyson. NdGT is an American astrophysicist and also a very effective Science Communicator. What the crap is a Science Communicator, you ask? A Science Communicator is a person who actively engages the general public on the topic of science. NdGT does this in many ways, hosting space themed television shows, touring and lecturing, writing books, and generally keeping us all informed and entertained at the same time via his Twitter account.

As far as i know this is Digital Nails’ only Science inspired polish. From what i’ve seen of her store she generally focuses on nerdy TV and Film including but limited to Star Wars, Adventure Time, Game of Thrones,My Little Pony,Arrested Development and The Fifth Element.

Dark Labyrinth a Math inspired polish

Product Description by Digital Nails:

Hello science & math enthusiasts and polish lovers! I am pleased to introduce Dark Labyrinth. This polish was inspired by an awesome quote about the importance of the language of mathematics by Italian physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher Galileo Galilei.The Dark Labyrinth is represented here in a black jelly base loaded with black stars, black hex glitters, and 3mm black circle glitters. It also features tons of silky teal glitters, plus neon pink hexes in two sizes, and neon green hexes and stars. The concept is that the blackness of the jelly base upon layering, will obscure the shapes of the bright colors underneath, representing all that human kind knows about our universe. Some things are very clear, some are partially clear, and lots are obscured by this Dark Labyrinth of which he spoke. This also conceptually stresses the importance of math and the sciences, and is my way of spreading my love of them.

Raphaelle also has several other Math inspired polishes in her etsy store inluding: Fibonnaci Sequins and The Golden Mean.

I myself can be a little geeky at times! I would consider myself a fan girl of Harry Potter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Tim Burton and 80’s Horror Movies. For someone incredibly girly these seem like strange interests! I would be super excited if Raphaelle brought out some BtVS inspired polishes but i have no idea if she is even into the show! ( which finsished production 10 years ago.)

In case you’re Wondering what Polishes i own by Digital Nails here they are ( so far…ominous elipsis):

Harry <3’s Ginny ( couldn’t resist a HP polish!)

Hipster in a Blender

Oh,Fionna ( not a whovian but this is gorgeous)

( check my wishlist for all the Digital Nails polishes i’m currently stalking)

Raphaelle at Digital Nails is a brilliant and responsive seller, so you should feel no worry or stress when it comes to ordering from her! She is very friendly and beautifully packages all items and even includes cute little freebies!
