The Digit-al Dozen Does Geek Week: I Heart My Nerd!!

Hi loves!!!  Its time for another edition of Digit-al Dozen nail art... this month our theme is Geek Week!  I cannot tell you how excited I was for this.  I am a bit of a nerd, and Mr. Sparkles is more than a bit of a nerd.  (Nerd is not to be confused with geek, because, as he has informed me, geek is a much more negative term than nerd.)  Either way, I just had to do this mani.

As a bit of background, Mr. Sparkles is a rocket scientist who is currently working on his PhD in particle physics.  Hence the atomic heart nail.  He is also super sexy in his black framed glasses, so I had to include those in there.  Mr. S has inspired a few of the other manis I've got for you this week... Dungeons and Dragon nails, anyone?

The technical bits behind this mani... I painted all my nails with two coats of MASH Nail Art Polish in White.  I cheated a smidge and used a black Sharpie marker for the lettering on my index, ring, and pinkie nails.  It was WORLDS easier than trying to do the lettering with a paint brush.

On my thumb and middle finger everything was freehanded with a small nail art brush and MASH Nail Art Polish in Black. For the heart and electrons orbiting the heart I used OPI You're A Pisa Work.

I hope you guys are excited as I am for the rest of this week... I can't wait to see what my other lady friends have come up with!

Take a peek with me!!


  1. It's weird, I think nerd is much worse than geek! But I'm British so I think it's more accent appropriate really!
    Love the nails though!

  2. Awww. So cute and well executed. The glasses are perfect!!

  3. I always thought Geek & Nerd were interchangeable. After doing this challenge, I've come to realize they are not. And I am seriously LOVING the originality of this mani - it's just so unique!

  4. This is awesome! And I always thought Nerd was more brainy smart while Geek was more cult TV and games kind of smart.

  5. geez, who know all this talk about geeks and nerds! this mani is awesome - possibly my favorite for the day so far!!!!

  6. This is so cute!! I definitely have to recreate this at some point - my boyfriend and I are total nerds too :D

  7. See I always thought geek was a much lighter term than nerd - I guess this challenge is gonna teach us a lot!
