Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.7:00 AM
For today's Geek Week nails I wanted to go a little more abstract! I'm a little disappointed in how the ring finger turned out for this. The emblem on the uniforms is meant to be a gold rimmed silver but the contrast just didn't really work for this mani. Still, I love all of it together! If you haven't figured it out yet, it's Star Trek!! These are representative of the uniforms from The Next Generation version of the television show. There were three uniform colors: red, blue and gold. In general, red is indicative of commanders and helm crew, blue is indicative of medical staff and science personnel and gold indicates a security, engineer or operations crew member. There were of course, exceptions to this like in the case of Deanna Troi who wore purple a lot and various other colors. Then there are gold pips on their collars which are admiral insignia. I started with the idea of doing specific pip numbers to represent cast members (like the red with four pip's for Captain Picard) but as the seasons went on many of the crew earned more pips so it seemed a lost cause! Anyway I hope you enjoyed the design! Don't forget to check out what the other ladies came up with for day three!
