Hey guys!
Today's design is another one I did back in the summer. This one is inspired by the song Island off of Winner's latest mini album Our Twenty For!

This is my first Winner inspired design and I definitely had a lot of fun with it! Both of the songs that Winner released this summer were really fun so I had a bit of a hard time choosing between the two when I was planning the design. The music video for this one was just so bright and tropical though that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to so a fun, summery design based off of it!

I think I've talked about this before, but there's usually one nail out of the bunch that I have a hard time planning and this time it was the index finger. I settled on all of the other parts of the design pretty quickly, but that one gave me some trouble as I was trying to match its colours to the other nails.

I really love the gradient on the middle nail, but the thumb nail is by far my favourite nail from this set! At first I wasn't 100% sure how I was going to go about painting the ending scene of the music video; all I knew was that it was going to happen one way or another. To achieve the sunset effect I ended up doing a combination of layered gradients and dry brush and then sponged a little bit of sheer polish over top. If you want to actually see how I painted the thumb then don't forget to check out the tutorial at the end of this post! 

As always, here's the tutorial for you guys!
