40 great nail art ideas- geeks

Wow, I'm not sure how another week has been and gone since the last time i did this challenge. And, oh look, I'm late again! Lol. Oh well, better luck next week.

So. Another theme week this week. And 'geeks'...which is far more vague than it sounds, as it turns out lol. I've been all I've the place with ideas for this mani. I'd finally decided on being a bell ringing geek and doing method themed nails again but then i had a sudden change of heart at the last minute.

So instead we have science.

In more detail we have a representation of Guanine on my thumb. This is a major component of DNA. It's called a nucleotide base and is one of four: A (adenosine) which pairs with T (thymine) and G (guanine) which pairs with C (cytosine). Or i think that's right. I'll stop there cos it's a bit late for a science lecture lol.

Index finger is the famous formula for working out energy, E. But I've whacked some brackets in and timesed it by two because i wanted 2E. Can you see where this is going? Lol.

The middle finger is a diagram of the electrons in an atom of potassium. It's a reactive metal in group 1 of the periodic table and has the chemical symbol K.

The ring finger is *supposed* to be a map of the human Y chromosome, but i copied an image from Wikipedia so it could be anything really :p. The Y chromosome is one of two chromosomes that determine gender, X and Y (like the Coldplay song haha), XX for a girl and XY for a boy.

Finally by the pinky i didn't really know what to do so i added the symbol for 'female'.

So we have:
Guanine- G
2x the formula for energy - EE
Potassium- K
Male chromosome- Y

GEEKY. Yay. Lol. And female symbol so i can be a geeky girl lol.

Polishes: base is Barry m road rage (cos it's what i had on already haha), white is nails Inc floral street, red is Barry m dead heat, blue is Barry m damson, grey is Barry m chai, lilac is Barry m prickly pear and the black is acrylic paint. Huh, i didn't think I'd used that many polishes lol.

Yea so this was seriously fiddly (those rings on potassium!) And it's so far from prefect it's untrue. But im still kind of pleased with it :).
