Introduction, with stripey nails!

Hi Polish or Perish readers! I'm Lab Muffin, and I'm stoked join the PoP ladies. Some of you might know me already from my beauty science blog, Lab Muffin.

A few things about me:

- I'm currently doing a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry - this means I wear a sexy labcoat covered in dirty chemicals, and desperately avoid getting acetone on my hands. I'm working on ways of making new drugs... hopefully it'll be useful in the future!

- Things I love: most food, anagrams, efficient public transport, holo, TV comedies, bunnies, my boyfriend (also a synthetic organic chemist), candles, green glitter, Stephen Fry, dancing, tea, cheesy kung fu movies, octopuses, cryptic crosswords, stationery, bunnies, cheap IKEA stuff, nerdy webcomics, HTC phones, lists, bunnehs.

- Things I hate: inconsistently formatted references, tipwear, mouth ulcers, science-illiterate politicians, distracting Powerpoint backgrounds, trying to buy just one thing from IKEA, frosts, crappy tweezers, liquorice, hangnails, losing my lab goggles, soggy bread.

- I'm from Australia, so I'll be using some different polishes from the other ladies. I love nail art... I can't wear a polish on its own without stamping or freehanding over it within a day.

I love bold patterns, so for my inaugural mani, I decided on some freehand stripes!

Colours used: ulta3 Sizzling Red (red), NOPI City-Pretty Rose (pink), Sally Hansen Sun Kissed (orange), ulta3 Honolulu (yellow).

I'm really happy with this colour combination - it's so cheerful and summery! It's probably going to be my final summer mani since we're halfway through autumn here, but the sun seems to be holding out, so who knows!

Welcome! I love it when people crossover from one area to another-which translates to "I love your blog and am happy to see you on this blog which I also love." I hope that this new gig won't slow down your own blog.

OMG you are a chemist! I'm an undergrad in chemistry right now, so I totally understand about the not-getting-acetone-on-your-hands thing xD Loving the nails, and I'm looking forward to seeing more posts from you on PoP!

I LOVE this mani. So nice to see you post - welcome to the fold!! :D

(And may I say I'm really excited to have another non-US lady here...even if your tap water does circulate the wrong way ;))

Welcome! Love the stripes and I look forward to some great nail art. It will be a great addition to the other "already wonderful" ladies' swatches. :-)
