Today's post is a little late. For some reason, the photos wouldn't upload like they usually do. It took an hour on my laptop before I gave up, and then I moved downstairs to the family computer and the photos uploaded instantly. Technology is strange sometimes.
For today's mani, I did nails inspired by Block B's "Very Good" MV.
Block B is a K-pop group with a more hip hop sound. They're my favorite K-pop group probably of all time. Yes, I fangirl hard for them lol (I promise I'm not that bad haha). I absolutely love the song and the music video for it, so I had to create these nails for it.
I was inspired by different parts in the MV for these designs.
The pinky represents the microphone lines in U-Kwon and P.O's section of the MV. I painted one coat of Wet n Wild's French White Creme as the base color. For the lines, I used a long striper brush and made random lines using Sinful Colors Black on Black.
The ring finger represents the red skull that Zico holds. I painted my nail one coat of Orly's Star Spangled. Once it dried a little, I put on top coat to help the gems stick together. Using tweezers, I stuck on the gems on the top coat.
The middle finger represents the clown masks that they use to disguise themselves as they're robbing the bank. I freehanded this design using Wet n Wild's I Red a Good Book, Sinful Colors Black on Black, an unnamed maroon polish, and Wet n Wild's French White Creme.
The pointer finger is the design on Zico's sunglasses. I painted one coat of Sinful Colors Black on Black on my nail. With a dotting tool, I created dots around the nail with Wet n Wild's French White Creme.
For the thumb, I did the 730 floor design. I painted my nail one coat of Sinful Colors Black on Black. Next, I freehanded the numbers using a detail brush with Wet n Wild's French White Creme.
I think the hardest part of this design was the nail gems. I've never actually put this many gems on one nail before, but I really love how it turned out. The other thing was that the top coat that I used for this design (shown in the photos) dried really fast. I had to keep applying the top coat because it would dry before I could put any more on the nail.
What do you think of this design? Are you a K-pop fan?
Thanks for reading! I'll put the video down below if anyone would like to see the MV.
