Oppa Gangnam Style Nails

PSY’s Oppa Gangnam Style phenomena needs no introduction.

Unless one had been living in a cave. In that case, please google.

I’ll let the pictures do the talking.


My left hand. Took 1.5 hours to paint this (includes mixing the paints to get the colours right) Contrary to what one might think, the face and the body were the easiest to paint. The most time consuming pictures were the horses. But ended up being my favourite, I mean, look at those teeth!


My right hand, which was done the next day. Took 2 nights to paint both hands (I have a day job, k). Chose a design, which I thought was simpler to do but it took me 2.5 hours to paint the merman! The ocean and the waves were easy and fun! I might do them again someday and draw in the bubbles next time.


The red acrylic paint bled into the white paint and resulted in a yellow patch that looked as though the merman peed!


Different permutations! Had a colleague help take some of the photos (Ruffie can’t help. He has no opposable thumbs, plus, he is just non-living thing. Just saying.) We shot the photos on the train commute home and the passengers must had been wondering what 2 crazy girls were doing taking pictures with flash on 😀

Nails, Oppa Gangnam Style.
