Blink 182 Nail Art! What's My Age Again?

I went to see one of my favourite bands EVER in Cardiff last night! BLINK 182! Needless to say, they were amazing and definitely worth the two year wait! Travis Barker's drum solos were just epic and he didn't miss a beat or even break a sweat.

On stage, Tom said something about it being 30 years this year since they started 'playing songs about growing up' and it just reminded me that I'm an adult now and I'm not really growing up any more. Well I'm 21 so maybe I still have a few years of reckless abandon left! But every time I listen to their music, I'm reminded of being a teenager and going through those things they sing about and I just love them for being the soundtrack to my youth. 

The nail art is based on some of their album covers - Neighborhoods, Enema of the State, Greatest Hits, Self-Titled/Untitled and Take Off Your Pants and Jacket.

It would be really amazing if they saw these nails so if you have the time and inclination, I would love if you could tweet a link to @markhoppus or @travisbarker or @tomdelonge or heck, even all three of them!
To make it easy for you, here's a short link I prepared earlier! http://bit.ly/M3ndLZ

Blink 182 Freehand Nail Art

I used a small striping brush to freehand all the details. My base colours are Barry M White and W7 Black. The small black and white details were done with acrylic paint but I used polish everything else.

  14. LOVE. I took my baby sister to see Blink a couple of years ago, and it was well worth the drive and waiting through like 8 opening bands. Little sis is 10 years younger so it was really cool to see her get excited about the music I loved at her age. I always liked their style, too, on the album art. Very cool for nails.

  19. Amazing! I'm lucky enough to be going to see them in London in 2 weeks time, and have really been inspired by your nails to attempt something on mine for the occasion! I've also been waiting 2 years (well really 10) I can't wait!

  23. I love Blink and I love these nails! Your "Enema of the State" inspired nail is SPOT on!
    Also, I wanted to tell you--yes, you will grow up more! I was amazed at the difference between myself at 21 (even a mature, non-partying-for-the-most-part 21 year old) and say, 25. I like to think I'll keep improving with age, like fine wine ;)
