Always love taking some time to scour the latest runways for nail inspo 💅🏻✨ Today’s look is inspired by look no. 21 from Moschino’s Fall 2019 RTW collection.

Red Velvet Redmare Tour

Originally posted on February 20th, 2019.

So many groups have been coming to Toronto lately. As much as I love being able to see all of them, it's definitely also taking it's toll on my wallet 😅
With that being said though, I couldn't pass up a Red Velvet concert and snagged a P1 ticket for their Toronto concert back in February.

Red lip? NO. Earrings? NO. High Heels? NO. Handbag? NO. 🙅‍♀️

Back in late January, CLC came back with their 8th mini album "No. 1" and the title track off the album, "NO."
CLC is one of my favourite girl groups and I really loved this comeback from them, so I obviously had to do a nail design inspired by the song!

Sunrise

My first ever design for Gfriend! While I've liked a lot of their songs before, this music video really stood out to me; I loved how warm it seemed and immediately wanted to turn it into a nail design!

2019, Year of the Pig

Originally posted on February 5, 2019.

Happy Lunar New Year to everyone who celebrates! ✨🧧 It’s the year of the pig (which is my Chinese Zodiac Sign!) so I incorporated a cute pig into the design and found another stuffed animal to help me out as a background prop 🐷✨

Happy Pride Month to you all! 🏳️‍🌈
I'm still really behind on catching up with blog posts for all of my designs, but they're just going to have to be out of order so that I can share this set during Pride.

Earlier this year Sally Hansen reached out to me about joining the #SallySquad and trying out some of their polishes along with their new matte gel topcoat. Since I've been into more minimalistic designs recently I went for this simple glitter cuticles look.

Winner Everywhere Tour

Originally posted on January 28, 2019.

Back in my second year of university, one of my friends decided that our friend group needed to binge all of Who Is Next in one day to check out YG's new boy groups. I'll admit that I've always been more of an SM stan than a YG stan, so I hadn't been all that interested in the show when it first aired. I'll also admit that while watching the show I was a bigger fan of Team B than Team A. However, since Winner and iKon's debuts I've actually found that Winner's music fits my taste more (though I do still like iKon as well).

I didn't know that Winner was coming to Toronto until well after tickets went on sale - somehow the news eluded me until a friend in Calgary finally told me about it. I'm very glad I ended up getting tickets to the show though because this concert ended up being one of my favourites to date!

Eung Eung

Originally posted on January 20, 2019.

I’ve been a fan of Apink’s music for a while, but somehow their MVs have never made it into my designs before. 🤷‍♀️ I thought the music video for their latest release Eung Eung (%%) was really cool thought, so this design was born!

Year in Manicures: 2018

Happy New Year to everyone!

The fact that I'm writing this year-end post in March is kind of a testament to just how busy I've been this past year. Even though I've been busy with school and work, I still managed to paint quite a few designs in 2018 and I wanted to take a look back at some of my favourites from the past year!

First Snow

Originally posted on December 22, 2018.

I’m affectionately calling this design “First Snow” even though I don’t think I’ve seen snow around here since like mid-November 🤷‍♀️❄️

Not that I’m complaining since no snow = I don’t have to shovel, but we’re definitely not getting a white Christmas this year ☃️

Love Shot

Originally posted on December 15, 2018.

Just gonna say straight up that everything about EXO's Love Shot comeback killed me. The song, the styling, the music video, the choreo... I was perfectly happy to watch the music video over and over again while planning this design.

Back in December I was fortunate enough to snag VIP tickets for the Toronto stop on Amber's Gone Rogue Tour!

This is an example of a design that looked way better in my head than I think it did in reality. 😅

Just Tri It

Originally posted on November 17, 2018.

Before painting this design I had an unfortunate run-in with my fridge and broke my middle nail down into a nub. The break was too bad to try to save, so all of my other nails had to be sacrificed and filed down to the shortest they had been in a good 3 years.

DAY6 Youth Tour

Originally posted on November 9, 2018.

Back in November I was lucky enough to see DAY6 live for the second time (and to get Hi-Touch tickets for the second year in a row as well). As expected from DAY6 the concert was awesome, and as with all the concerts I go to, I needed to have my nails decked out for the occasion.

Tempo

Originally posted on November 4.

I can't believe... that SM made us wait like a year and a half for EXO's comeback. Granted, it was a very good comeback and therefore worth the wait but still.
Regardless, the DMUMT was fire and I had a pretty easy time working the Tempo music video into a design (I think, it's been a few months so I could just be glossing over the design process in my memory). Love it when I can keep a consistent colour scheme for the entire design!
