1. Tour De France: Layer on two coats of Color Club Almost Famous (total jersey yellow, it’s perfect). With that dry, use acrylics to paint in some TDF elements: a silhouette of a rider on the pinky, you’re favorite rider on the ring (UHMM, Mark Cavendish), the TDF logo on the middle finger, and a simple happy bike on the index.

2. Blue Bicycles: Pick a pretty soft base color, paint with two coats. Use a thin nail brush to finely paint the dots and bicycles with a darker tone. We love these polishes by Essie and find this nail kit essential to achieving our creative designs.

3. Bicycle Print Decals: It’s easy to give yourself a professional looking manicure with a set of decals! This set includes 15 bicycle pattern nail art decals printed on clear water slide decal paper. All you have to do is choose a pop out color and coat with a glossy gel.

4. Bicycle Decals: These would look great on any color nail, but are most vibrant over light nail polishes. Clear Water Slide Nail decals look like they are painted on and last about 1 week with a good top coat after applying.

5. Simple Tour Bicycle: No decals here or races, just a simple look with a bright color and some art a la bicyclette. Just make sure your coats are dry before you start with a patter. Using acrylic paint and a brush will get this bicycle look down perfectly. Ready to get your nail art on yet?
