SHINee's Jonghyun recently came back with his first full length album titled She Is and I couldn't resist turning the fun, odd, colourful music video into a nail design!
The music video for She Is is super quirky and fun, but I also found it hard to work with in terms of creating a cohesive nail design to go with it. I found the the focus was mostly on colours and the only repeating object seemed to be the excavator which I deemed to difficult to paint (so instead I painted Jonghyun's face, obviously an easier choice.....).
The collage below shows the scenes that I settled on for inspiration:
I took a few creative liberties with them.
I combined the hair + glasses in the close up of Jonghyun in the collage with the yellow turtleneck he wears later in the video for the middle finger, and added Jonghyun's name in Hangul to the ring finger because there just isn't enough space on one nail to fit all those letters when it's Romanized.
I'm actually super happy with how the Hangul came out; I honestly think it looks better than some of the English lettering I've done, lol.
As with quite a few of my recent kpop designs, I also filmed a tutorial for this manicure!
If you decide to try this design out for yourself please remember to properly credit me!
