BMX nail art

It' Sunday nail art with a theme organized by the lovely Lelack. The theme of this Sunday is "Boyfriend/Partner". For this theme I was quite sure what to do, one of my boyfriend's largest interest is BMX. The short version for those of you who doesn't know what it is, it is the usage of small low-weight bikes which men(and some women) preform tricks with. My boyfriend is quite talented since he's been doing it the last ten years, he has also got a company where he design bicycle parts. Well, what I want to say, the choice was simple for me.

I wanted to make it graphic so I choose to use a sprocket and text (A sprocket is the thing with cogs allowing the chain to transmit movements from the pedals to the wheel).  I first painted my nails white and then I stamped a diagonal with two purple colors starting with the lighter one.

An accent nail was unintentionally created when I tried making a bike. However that came out the ugliest thing I've ever seen so well, it disappeared.
 The nail art in black and white are made with a nail art pen to be able to create round lines.

Polishes used:
Kleancolor - White
Kleancolor - Pastel Purple
Kleancolor - Neon Purple
Sure Promise (Black)
Sure Promise (White)

So there you have it! Hope you liked it and now I'll wait to see what you others have done with this!


  1. Very creative and also pretty! I love the diagonal gradient you created on top and bottom of the neils, the effect is gorgeous!

    1. Thank you! That's the fun part with the themes, one gets forced to be creative and not do the same things one being use to. Fun you liked the diagonal gradient,it's fun how many possibilities there is to change gradients :D

  2. Väldigt talande och snygg manikyr:)

    1. Tack! Ja text är väl det mest talande nånsin! Utan den vet jag inte om någon hade gissat rätt. ;)

  3. Nice one! :D
    I really like the stamping bit with white and purple!
