Tutorial: Doctor Who Nail Art - The Cute Silence by KayleighOC Tutorial: Doctor Who Nail Art - The Cute Silence by KayleighOC
The Silence have been one of the creepiest Doctor Who villains yet! So, I’ve created a cute version of a Silent for everyone to try. Aww, how could he possibly be evil?..

The tutorial is very easy to follow and should leave you with a perfect little Silent to show off on your nails. Here we go…

What you’ll need:

4 shades of nail polish (black, brown, white and cream)
a thin paintbrush or toothpick
a nail file


1 – Paint a pale, cream colour on your thumbnail and wait for it to dry (a nail filed into a rounded edge will work best for this part).

2 – Use a darker, brown shade to paint two curved slices at the tip of your nail, creating the face shape. Here the brush that comes with the polish will work okay.

3 – The same brown polish is used to paint two circles where the eyes should go. Again, you can use the polish’s brush, or you might choose to use a thinner brush of your own, a large ‘dotting tool’ or a toothpick - in order to be more precise.

4 – Once the brown circles are dry, blob two smaller, black circles inside them (nearer to the top works well) to give the eyes more detail.

5 – Paint four vertical lines where the mouth should be with the same brown polish as before. It is probably best to use a thin paintbrush or a toothpick for this step as it is quite delicate.

6 – Moving on to the ring finger, use a white polish to paint your whole nail and wait for it to dry.

7 – The only other polish you’ll need for this nail is black, and the first step is to paint a small triangle in the centre of the tip of your nail to create the knot of a tie.

8 – Paint a line straight down your nail from the middle of the triangle to finish the tie.

9 – Starting from the middle of the tie, paint upwards towards the corner of your nail to add one side of the suit.

10 – Do the same with the other side to finish your nail – now it should look like a little suit and tie!

Your thumb and ring finger should now match up to create the full villain! I painted the rest of my nails black but any colour would look cute. Or, you could use a thin brush or a toothpick to paint the sinister tally markings on your free nails, it’s up to you! Also, a clear top coat will make the nails look great and keep the design a bit safer from chipping (but wait for all parts to be completely dry before applying it).

This is the first tutorial I have ever made so I really hope that it was fun and helpful, and that everyone gives it a try.

These are meant to be a simpler version of these nails [link] (which look much creepier) :) x
