Fanged Fruit

Lemon nails are such a classic for summer, and that's what I was going to paint this week, but then I saw a dragon fruit print on Pinterest and decided that that would be more fun!

1 Billion Views

Originally posted on July 25th, 2020.

EXO-SC is back with their second mini album, 1 Billion Views (10α„‹α…₯ᆨ뷰)! This mv was totally different from their previous release, What a Life. Both were fun, but this one was a lot darker in terms of colour scheme. As a result, my design ended up being a lot darker, too.

I don’t even know how long it’s been since I did just a simple, minimalist design.

Don’t get me wrong, I love painting my intricate Kpop nails, but sometimes a girl’s just gotta paint some black and white lines and call it a day πŸ˜‚

They got all eyes on me.

It's always exciting seeing what Lay comes up with for his solo releases, and let me tell you, LIT really blew me away. It's not a style I would typically listen to, but every time the song drops into the first chorus it gives me chills. And don't even get me started on the production value of this mv - it's just insane!

Such a grand music video needed a grand nail design, and here it is!

Baekhyun is back with his second mini album, Delight, and I couldn't be more delighted! While the R&B vibes from UN Village are still a personal favourite, I loved Candy's fun and flirty concept and music video.

I wanted to channel that vibe in this design, so I hope you like it!

Listen... I know this is straying from my usual MO a bit, but after hearing BOL4's pre-release song featuring Baekhyun from EXO, I just HAD to make a nail design for it. It was too cute not to πŸ₯Ί

My Character Cuticles series is back!
It feels like I haven't added to this series in forever, and when I asked my friends for suggestions of characters to add, my friend Joanne suggested I do Animal Crossing.

Let's Love

Our leader is here with his solo debut!

I'm so happy that more and more of the exos are getting their own solos; all of their albums have such different vibes, and it's been so interesting seeing what styles they go for as individual performers as opposed to their group stuff.

I enjoyed the kind of rock ballad vibe Junmyeon went for with the whole Self Portrait album, and this design is how interpreted the music video for the title track, Let's Love.

The scent of lavender is supposed to be calming, and I feel like that's something we could all use right about now.

Let me introduce you to some new thangs πŸŽΆπŸ₯‹πŸ‰

Can you believe that this is my first ever full on NCT design?? Me neither.

I'm always a sucker for SM groups, and while I don't follow NCT as closely as EXO or SHINee, I do still listen to all of their albums and watch their mvs. I actually sketched out an idea for a design inspired by Firetruck years ago, but I wasn't happy with it so it never saw the light of day.

I'm much happier with this Kick It design, and I hope you are, too!

ON

I am absolutely, ridiculously late on posting this design, but I hope you'll forgive me.

The pandemic, followed by moving to a new country for a job (I moved to Korea!!) left me with very little mental energy and physical time to do nail design write ups.

BUT, I'm back and hopefully will be able to get caught up at some point.

So without further ado, here is my design inspired by BTS' song ON!
