All Night

Ok, so I'm totally behind in posting designs to the blog but I'm going to try to get back on top of things and hopefully stay on top of things in the coming months.

I did this design back around mid-August in honour of Girls' Generation's 10 year anniversary and the release of their 6th full-length album Holiday Night! I focused specifically on the music video for the song All Night and tried to tap into all the glitter and glam that SNSD rocked in the video.
Happy 10 Years Girls!

I chose to base my design on All Night over Holiday because honestly I like this song more and I felt like it gave off a more chic feel for their 10th anniversary. The two glittery nails were meant to kind of encompass all the different glittery elements in the mv, but were specifically inspired by the lapels of Sunny's jacket during some of the dance shots. The middle and ring finger nails were also inspired by outfits in the music video, specifically Taeyeon's shirt/bralette and Seohyun's off-the-shoulder top. I was originally going to paint the logo on the thumb in full colour, but midway through painting it I decided that the extra colours would kind of throw off the design since they don't appear on any of the other nails.  

If I ever decide to do fishnet on my nails again please remind me that it's a terrible idea because it honestly took me so long to make all of those tiny lines, and then the topcoat proceeded to slightly ruin them anyways ;-;
I did quite like the red arrows over top of the holo glitter though, so that's something I would consider doing again in the future!

And as always, I filmed a tutorial for this design!
I've had some issues lately with people reposting my videos on instagram and not crediting me and/or adding their own watermarks onto the video. Please don't do that. I spend a lot of time working on these videos for you guys and all I ask is that you properly credit me if you're using any of my content. With that in mind, if you decide to recreate this design for yourselves, please tag your photos with #looknyanails so that I can see them and tell you how awesome your recreations are! ^^
