2NE1 UGLY Inspired Mani

If you haven't heard of 2ne1 chances are you will in the near future.  Let me just say I freaking love this k-pop group!  These girls are so cute, special, and spectacular in a very individual way and create music that is both super catchy and also meaningful.  I have been loving this k-pop band since the first time I heard the words....naega jeil jal naga.  English translation - I'm the best! In any event the video for the song Ugly is really funky - splashes of neon glow in the dark paint, torn and ripped clothing, masks, braids, glitter, you name it.  Super cool only in the way these girls can do it. I wanted to recreate the chaos of this video on my nails and these were the results.  I'm hoping they fell into a category of beautiful ugly than just plain ugly (pfft).

Super duper neon pink!

Judicious use of crackle.

Sort of the funkiness I was aiming for.

If you want to see exactly how I got this look and the products I used you can watch my tutorial here:

And if you haven't seen the Ugly video you can check it out here on 2ne1's official YT channel.  If you look up the english lyrics you'll find this is a song that many women or men can identify with.  Thanks for reading and now to quote Niga Higa, "2NE1 K-pop shoutout exit - I'm out!" Singing, "I think I'm ugly and nobody wants to love me just like her I want to be pretty. I want to be pretty....".
