When I was studying virology in my 4th year, I came across a virus I would never forget. It had a shape that I thought was so cool and caused an equally memorable infection. May I introduce you to rhabdovirus, the virus that causes rabies! Its known for its distinctive rod-shape and infects a broad range of hosts like insects, fish and mammals. Here is the prettiest diagram I could find and although I couldn’t fit all of this information on my nails, I hope you enjoy them anyway!
I started off with two coats of Barielle – U-Concrete-Me and then hand-painted each of the little rhabdoviruses with pink, purple and black acrylic paint. I even drew their little viral RNA! I then finished off with a coat of…you guessed it, China Glaze – Fairy Dust!
Hope you guys enjoyed Day 2 of the NNC!
