Morse Code Nails | Geeks | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

It’s geek week for 40 Great Nail Art Ideas. I decided to create some Morse code nail art.

I know geeky can mean having a serious fandom about something – as in being a Whovian or a Trekkie. But it also conjures up science, maths and computing and anything technical or complex. And you have to be a little geeky to learn or decipher any sort of code.

I don’t profess to know Morse code, so Google was my friend. The dots and dashes are a random assortment of letters, except for the red ones, which together stand for something. There’s no prize for working it out, but feel free to do so!

I did the black Morse code with a black Barry M Nail Art Pen. I don’t have a red nail art pen, so I used a red fineliner pen. It worked just fine.

I like the idea of these, but they’re not executed very well. They were done in a bit of a rush and they don’t live up to my (over) exacting standards. I’m part of the group and I committed to posting something every week, but I have to say that I am struggling with the theme prompts and I’m not really happy with these.

The morse code design looks super neat.


I love these! Of course I was curious and had to Google to find out what the red letters were! 😉

Ha ha. I think you’re the only one who has!


I am confuuuuused! Tried morse code translator – couldn’t figure it out. And am now on the morse code converter and I can’t understand if the last one is a dash or an underscore – darn it!
Is it like this? -.-. / -.-

Claire Kerr

Oh bless you for trying Mina! You’re right, it’s dash dot dash dot / dash dot dash.


I cracked the code!!! hehehe – thanks for the fun, luv 🙂
