YouTube Nail Art Week - Gangnam Style Nails

Heeeeeeeeeyyyyyyy sexy lady!

Since it's YouTube Week, I thought that it would only be appropriate to end the week out by paying homage to the most watched YouTube video of all time. You all know what it is - PSY's Gangnam Style.

I went looking for a cute Gangnam Style tutorial and there were quite a few to choose from. So instead of choosing just one, I based my recreation on two different tutorials: this one by Creativenailart and this one by cutepolish.

For all of the suit jacket nails, I started with a base of Orly Snowcone. I then used a striping brush and Sinful Colors Snow Me White to create a deep v shape down the middle. Finally, I used Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme to add the bow tie and the jacket's lapels.

For PSY's face on my middle nail, I used Lime Crime Milky Ways as the base colour. It's a really great flesh coloured polish so it worked perfectly in this design. All of the facial detailing was done with a small brush and Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme.

This part of the design seems to look better on more rounded nails because that's more similar to PSY's face shape. It's still absolutely unmistakable whose face it is on my middle nail, though.

Well that ends YouTube Nail Art Week! I hope you all enjoyed the series! I think today's recreation was probably my favourite of all, just because I love the humour of it.

Thanks for looking!

P.S. I have a couple of announcements coming in the next couple of days, so watch out for those. :)

  9. Oh my god, I love these so much! PSY's face looks so great! I thought they looked great on your square tips - I can't imagine them being better on a round tip as it might be too long for his face. Such nice work as always.
