31 Day Challenge Day 26: Inspired by a Pattern

I want to start off this post by thanking all of you for your kind words and support as I have been going through a difficult time these past few days. It really has meant a lot to me to read all those comments and know that I have so many amazing friends out there! So THANK YOU!

I am super excited about the nails I'm sharing with you today for inspired by a pattern. I had a whole bunch of cool pattern ideas, but I decided to try and think out the box a little bit! So what's something that has a pattern?! DNA!

A DNA double helix that is actually stunningly simple when you get right down to it. The sides of the ladder are a linked chain of alternating sugar and phosphate molecules. The rungs connect to the sugar molecules and are known as bases. There are four bases - adenine (A, yellow), thymine (T, green), guanine (G, red) and cytosine (C, blue). Each rung is made up of two bases that link together. Because of their chemical nature, A will only link with T and G will only link with C.

I used my absolute favourite white, Milani White On The Spot as a base and then created my double helix with It's So Easy Stripe Rite Black. I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lightning for the adenine, It's So Easy Stripe Rite Green for the thymine, It's So Easy Stripe Rite Red for the guanine and It's So Easy Stripe Rite Blue for the cytosine. If you can't tell I loooovve my It's So Easy Stripers!

On my thumb I created the bases in their respective colours. Other than the double helix I created some random symbols to show how the bases connect with each other!

I had so much fun with these nails, and it totally amped up my nerd factor! Loving the pattern going on here with, A's, T's, C's and G's ;) I'm sooo coool... lol!

What do you think of my DNA patterned nails?

Make sure you head over to The Lacquerologist to see what pattern has inspired Emily!!
