Just wondered if anyone has used nail paint/vanish on their hubs to give a paint splatter type effect? Post pictures if you have dk wether to give it a go

Sounds cool but I imagine it would chip off.

When the river runs red, take the dirt road instead.

I am suprised i haven't asked this question.

Women's fingernails don't chip that easy but nails are a bit more porus. My uncle touched up a tiny tiny spot on his Chevelle with nail polish if i remember correctly and it never chipped off i don't think. Your hub would get a medium amount of contact compared to those two so i imagine it would be ok for a while.

Testimony and apologies





I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

What would Jesus say: I didn't die for you to live like this!

Even if it chips off, you can just repaint it. Hubs don't make contact with anything except the air and occasionally water (unless you get shot at or something), so there's no real reason for the paint to rub off.

Pretty cool man I've touched up my purple frame with nail varnish before as it matches well and it lasted for quite a while

hubs take the least level of abrasion of any part on your bike because they are literally caged off
go for it, might look sick, if not just use acetone and get it off

I actually think I have heard of people using it to paint their hubs. they did the whole thing if I recall though, not just splatter... also I don't know if they sanded it down at all or anything
