Caffeine Molecule Nail Art with OPI for Digit-al Dozen Geek Week

Morning loves!

Let me tell you...I like nothing about this mani except that it's about my beloved caffeine. Hahaha I am a coffee geek for sure!! Though it would be appropriate to confess that love and get geeky with it. This is the caffeine molecule in all it's glory. However, I'm not pleased with the outcome. For starters, my base OPI My Vampire is Buff does not play nicely on me. This is the 3rd or 4th time I've tried it. Think I'll give up now. Even after 3 careful coats and top coat, it still has some streaks and bald spots. Boo. So..sad to say I had a bad feeling about this mani almost as soon as it began.

I used German-icure by OPI for the lettering.

This stayed on my fingers long enough to snap the pics. On to the next mani! :D And on to the other very talented ladies:

Be well,

  1. As a science/pre-health major, you've no idea how happy it makes me to see organic molecules on nails. I love it! I think the mani is awesome!

  2. Great idea!! I'm enjoying a coffee right now. :D Too bad My Vampire is Buff does not work for you. I'm wearing it in my current mani and I love it. It definitely needs three coats but I'm not having the same problems you are. :(

  3. Nice idea!
    I don't like science, so I don't think I will ever wear something like this ;).

  4. Love it! This is what keeps us all going when we are doing our nails! :)

  5. Sou louquinha por um O.P.I!
