Blink 182 Nail Art

Blink 182 may just be my favourite band ever. Not in a crazy, superfan way - it's just that I've been listening to their music for years and years and I never get fed up of hearing it. I was supposed to be seeing them play in July but the tour was postponed since they haven't finished recording the new album. The gig's been postponed a year, yeah you heard me right, 12 months! WTF guys?! But whatever, I'm not gonna stop loving them because of that. So I thought I'd pay tribute the best way I know how... on my nails.

Here's a better one of my thumb, it's at a
funny angle in all the other shots.

If you want to know any of the products or techniques used, just leave a comment and I'll reply below.


  1. you already know how much i love this! its perfectly done, great technique, nail art pens? xxx

  2. PolishedToTheNines - Thanks!

    Emily - Nope! It's all freehanded with a tiny brush and polish (except the butterfly which I used a stamp to do the outline for, then coloured in, and the white block on my index which I used scotch tape to mark off):D


  3. Wow, the butterfly is especially wonderful!

  4. Aw, the memories these album covers bring back :) Love this mani!

  5. I used to be the weird super fan lol Although I still love them and met them all (Travis is the sweetest and actually remembered me the second time I met him!!) I feel like I've grown out of their music.

    I'm still interested to see what their new album will have in store. They gotta hurry up though, this is taking too long!

  6. These are awesome! I love blink-182 also- their song make me feel happy on the inside.

  7. this is amazing! U r so talented. i like it so much!

  8. i'm sorry, but that is the coolest thing i have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!
    thats so so rad xD i'm a straight guy but please can you do this for me? aha

  9. Well trimmed and fine long nails are best for nail art. You can start with nail art at home by using a nail art kit which includes a thin nail brush and nail colors.

  10. OMG I LOOVE THE BLINK nails !!!!! xD

  11. Honestly this is just beautiful, i would do absolutely anything for nails like that!!!:)

  12. this mani is the most beautiful i've ever seen : )
    i looked at your star wars mani and thought: now she only has to have a blink 182 mani and then i saw that!
    so amazing : )
