They say “dress for the job you want”, hence why geeky tees are pretty much the best thing ever.

But this nail art is next level dedication. This says, “I love my fandom so much that I’ve given up the use of my hands just to show the world my passion.”

When it comes to nail art? I’d easily ditch nail polish for just painting my nails with Sharpie. Maybe it’s cuz I’m a 24-year-old with the nail polish skills of a 5-year-old with coordination issues. Maybe it’s cuz my favorite part of painting my nails is peeling off the polish and leaving a little trail of rainbow chips behind me.

But KayleighOC’s incredible nerdy nail art has converted me to appreciating this as a true art. Check out some of my faves of her nail art here, and check out her dozens of other incredible designs at her Deviantart.
