40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Your Job

So for the first time, I am posting from our NEW HOUSE. I have an office and a desk and everything, which makes doing MY JOB so much easier. It also makes blogging easier, but I don’t get paid to do that. I’m a software developer, mostly web applications right now, lots of front-end, trying to add a little bit of “designer” to my job description. So 90% of what I do is Javascript! (little bit of CSS on the side) So I did a stylized JavaScript Manicure!


My first nail is two forward slashes, which mark a line as a comment and it will be ignored by the complier. Comments are mainly for explaining your code, both for your furture reference and for shared code, but as I’m developing I’ll have a lot of lines that say things like “//What the f*** am I trying to do here? This seems like a terrible way to do it, but I can’t get it to work otherwise!!!!” The idea is to delete them before I share my code…although I don’t always remember. Anyway, I made them in grey because that’s generally what most IDEs and text editors do, so you can distinguish them from the rest of your code at a glance.


My next nail is an opening curly brace. Javascript LOVES curly braces. They are everywhere. They define objects, which are the fuel upon which Javascript runs. The curly brace was actually the inspiration for this manicure, as I realized how aesthetically pretty they were on their own! Following that nail is “.js”, simply the file extension for a Javascript file. Also coincidentally, my initials.
I finished it up with a semi colon, because every single statement in Javascript ends in a semi colon! Actually, putting the semi colon at the end was a coincidence, I put it there because it would be easy to draw on my thin little pinkie nail, but I can pretend it was deliberate!

Enjoy the other Ladies’ jobs! I’m so curious and excited to find out what ya’ll do for a living!
