The Digital Dozen does...Geeky!!

7:00 AM

This week the Digital Dozen ladies have chosen to do "geeky" as a theme. I'm very excited about this because, well let's face it I know I'm a geek.  I'm probably also a big nerd because I always loved school and learning and I spout off ridiculous knowledge at people all the time.  :P  I had a million ideas for this week but since there are only five challenge days I tried to do some designs that I feel sort of round out my geek-ism and also semi-reflect my favorite geeky things! So I'm staring off today with something a little more nerd than geek leaning: Chemistry.  I LOVE LOVE LOVED Chemistry in school and at one point thought about making a career out of it but then I decided I wanted to go for something more people involved.  I intended to go a little more normal with this and do H2O, otherwise known as water on my nails. However, while I was executing it I had a major distraction and ended up making HO2.  Which incidentally, is Hydroperoxyl.  Never heard of it? Well let me enlighten you!

Hydroperoxyl is what you get when you remove a hydrogen atom from hydrogen peroxide or by pronating the superoxide ion. Hydroperoxyl exists in our atmosphere and is, sadly, what is responsible for the destruction of ozone in the stratosphere. It is very reactive and acts as a "cleanser" of the atmosphere by degrading certain organic pollutants. The chemistry of hydroperoxyl is of considerable geochemical importance for this reason. Yay for destructive nails.  Lol...but hey, we all learned a lesson today didn't we?

Don't forget to check out what the other ladies have come up with for the first day of Geek Week!

  1. You crack me up. Great mani and Hydroperoxyl makes it way cooler! :)

  2. I never took chemistry in HS or College. I opted for Zoology (why?) and Physical Science (which has a bit of chemistry in it). I really love the designs you did!

  3. Bah! I love it! And we got to learn something how nerdy is that!

  4. These are great! I am an old geek - worked as a clinical laboratory scientist so these would be a great hit going to lunch with a few ladies I used to work with and still get together with!

  5. I think you've just taught me more about chemistry than I learned in years of school!

  6. I want to marry you for your geekyness! ;P
