Organelles of the Cell

So, this bit of nail art is…weird. For my thesis defense, I decided to paint organelles on my nails with their color corresponding to the color I used on the graphs to depict them. Basically, my nails have colored dots of different sizes.

My lysosome graphs were purple, so my pinky has small purple lysosomes. The mitochondria graphs were pink, so thats why the weird folded jellybeans on my ring finger are pink.

Autophagosomes were green, so there are large green circles on my middle finger. Signaling endosomes were coral, so I went with shades of orange on my pointer (I still don’t have a dark orange, so I defaulted to brown for the membrane).

Since I only looked at 4 color-specfic cargo (the others were mixed teal and blue and purple, so that wasn’t going to happen), I just put them altogether in a light blue cell on my thumb!

So right, have some organelles. I know it’s strange, but it was cathartic! Friday’s post ends the week of odd nerdy things, but I promise it is a bit more main-stream than organelles!

  1. Love it. Much more fun looking at them on your nails than counting them. Brings back memories of Uni.

  2. Wow! Pretty neat! And it is admirable how you had the presence of mind the day before your defence to think of this! 😀

  3. Wow this is so cool!
