Leo

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 🥺

So, like I alluded to, I'm usually too busy to be able to spend design time on pre-release tracks, but the combination of BOL4, a cute song, and my bias for anything EXO related pushed me to turn this track into a nail set.

Though there wasn't a lot to go off of in the mv, I thought the butterfly and cat logo was adorable, as was the floral logo that I used on the thumb.
These two don't really match each other colour-wise, but I since I post the thumb separately from the rest of the design on IG, I figured it would be okay to have a bit of disconnect.

I really do love how to thumbnail came out. The contrast of the very inorganic squares with the organic flowers really works for me.

As for the other nails, the cat was definitely a struggle! Getting the proportions right was difficult -  if I remember correctly, I actually had to paint the cat twice because I messed it up the first time. But I persevered, and I think it turned out pretty well in the end!
