EXO ‘Obsession’ Nail Art Tutorial

EXO ‘Obsession’ Nail Art Tutorial


Hey guys, it’s Becca! Today I’ll be showing you how to recreate my EXO “Obsession” inspired design Start off by painting your thumb and pinky nails white, your index nail beige, your middle nail black, and your ring finger nail red For the first nail, we’re going to be recreating X-Sehun’s eye make up The first thing you’ll want to do is to make the general shape of his eye using a dark brown polish I accidentally made the eye a bit too droopy when I was painting it on camera, so try to make both corners a little bit higher than I did here After you’ve made your eye shape, fill it in with a really light grey polish To make the eye look more realistic you’ll want to add depth by using darker gray polishes to add shadows to the inside and outside corners of the eye Use a blue polish to make the iris and then use a darker blue to outline it Add the pupil with black and then add some highlights with white You can also use black to darken the edges of the eyelids Next we’ll be adding shading around the eye I used a darker beige polish all around the eye and then darkened the inner corner and the crease with a light brown Use a light beige to add highlights around the inner corner of the eye and the brow bone Finish up the eye by using a dark brown to add a little bit of extra shading Make the eyebrow with black polish Finally use a sparkly red polish to make a slash through the eye If you don’t have a sparkly red you could also just use loose red glitter or just a plain red polish Seal in your design with a topcoat Use white paint or polish to make the EXO and X-EXO logo on the black nail Fill the letters in with red paint or polish Seal in your design with a top coat Use a dark red polish to section off the upper left corner of your nail and the bottom right corner Once you’ve sectioned them off you can fill them in with the darker red Once the red polish is dry, use white and black polishes to make to knight chess pieces facing each other Seal in your design with a topcoat Make a jagged blue line down the center of your nail Fill in the right side of your nail with blue I made the blue lighter as I got closer to the edge of the nail by gradually mixing it with a lighter blue polish Darken the jagged edge with a dark blue Fill in the white section with yellow, being sure to leave a white border near the jagged edge Paint the upper-left corner of the nail solid orange and that have it fade out as you get closer to the center by dotting the polish on haphazardly Next, add a jagged layer of black over top of the orange Dab some white onto the blue side of the nail for clouds and then use black to add some floating debris Outline the jagged line with sheer orange and then sheer yellow Add some sheer orange over top of the black areas and then clean up the border area with some white Seal in your design with a top coat Lastly we’ll be painting EXO’s Obsession logo To make the flagpoles start off by using a silver polish to make an X in the center of the nail Use a medium gray polish to add diamonds to the top of each pole and a line to each of the bottoms Use dark grey polish to add shading to the poles Add highlights with light grey and white polishes Use black to make the flags They should connect to the pole just beneath the topper and just above where the poles cross Use a sheer white polish to add highlights Add a white stripe to the left flag and then shade the center of the stripe with a light grey Seal in your design with a top coat and you’re done!
