Are you a fan of 90s music? Then you certainly know Red Hot Chili Peppers! I’m a huge fan of the band and when Google Pixel and YouTube Music invited me to attend Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in Sydney, I was super excited and decided to create a special nail design inspired by one of their most famous albums – Blood Sugar Sex Magic.
This Red Hot Chili Peppers design is completely free hand painted. I can tell you it was challenging as I had to recreate the tattoo patterns precisely as they appear on the album cover. So before I proceeded to paint the tattoos on nails, I practiced painting the patterns in my Little Book of Nail Art. So if you ever decide to paint something unusual or difficult on your nails (or your client nails), I highly recommend you try it first on tips or in your Little Book of Nail Art, whichever you have available ;)
To paint the patterns, I use this liner brush and it worked perfectly for creating smooth waves and sharp twirls. As for the roses, I took a short cut and used Roses nail stickers from the upcoming SoNailicious Stickers collection. So at least this part of my manicure was easy.
Now enjoy, the nail art!
Now, over to you!
Are you a fan of Red Hot Chili Peppers? And how do you like the nails – are they RHCP enough? ;)
Also, would you be interested in seeing a video tutorial on how to create this design? I’m considering filming it but only if you want it, so if you’d like to see – let me know in the comments below!

P.S. I have also filmed our Red Hot Chili Peppers adventure! So stay tuned for a full report from the concert – coming soon on SoNailicious!
