Let's Do the Time Warp Challenge! Day 5: "We can do it!"

Hello all! I hope everyone had a nice weekend! I did but I woke up feeling sick today. No fun but hopefully I'll feel better soon. Anyways, today is Day 5 of the Let's Do the Time Warp Challenge! The objective was to create a design honoring an influential woman in history. I choose to honor Marie Curie, one of the most influential women of all time.




Madame Curie was an extradonary women who made many contributions to society, especially with her work in science. I'll just give you an overview of why I think this women was so amazing. Madame Curie worked heavily with radioactivity materials and had a hand in discovering the elements Polonium and Radium. For her work, she received two Nobel prizes. She also received many other prestigious awards and honors. She became the first female professor at  La Sorbonne and during World War I, she dedicated her time to aiding the Red Cross. To help wounded soldiers, Marie Curie developed portable radiography units, which many called petites Curies.

Marie Curie paved the way for women to work in fields that at one time were strictly worked by men. She was selfless; giving her time, money, and energy to others. Ultimately, her contributions cost Marie Curie her life but she made such an impact that her sacrifice didn't go to waste. We learned so much from her research and discoveries. If you don't know much about this women, you really need to read about her. She is very inspiring.

I found my information on Wikipedia and Biography.com.

So on to my nails! I decided to do Marie Curie's name with some test tubes and beakers, then I did the radioactive symbol, her two elements, and a red cross for her time working with them during WWI.




So what do you think? I hope I did this amazing women justice! There is only three days of the challenge left! Wednesday is Day 6 of the challenge. I'm excited, I already know what I am doing, it is going to be fun!


I'm looking forward to seeing the other manicures about influential women. I'm sure I won't be the only one to use Marie Curie.

I'll be posting Day 24 of the 31 Day Challenge later today, so see you then!
PeaceErin
