Ariana Grande ft Iggy Azalea 'Problem' Video Nails

Hi guys!
As you can tell from the pictures, I got 99 problems but my nails won’t be one!

So I woke up this morning to see that the video for Ariana Grande ft Iggy Azalea and Big Sean - Problem was released and since at the moment it is my JAM right now I had to watch it asap.. And I loved the set and colours SO much I decided to do a mani based on things from the video.

Iggy looked FLAWLESS as per usual but... is it just me or does Ariana need to learn some new things to do with her arms and hands? It just seemed awkward to me how she kept doing the same movements over and over. The girl is so beautiful and talented though I guess it isn't important.

Anyway, if you haven’t seen the video yet you can watch it here:

I mean, come on!! Such a great song! I love the whole Mod thing Ariana is doing at the moment. Her boots are to die for! But this song is just perfect.

So these were the nails I came up with:

I am so obsessed with the diamontied ring finger nail and middle swirl nail and will definitely be recycling that idea in the future!

Here are the stills from the video that I took inspiration from:

I really wish I had the OPI Sheer collection for the stripes as they would be PERFECT for it but it's still on my wish list unfortunately so I had to make do.

Close ups of each nail:

This is actually my least favourite. I was trying to recreate the spinning circle she was laying on and even though it's on my biggest nail I just couldn't get the lines close enough together :( it looked so different in my head haha

The lines around Iggy. Decided to do a heart because I loooove Iggy. I don't think anyone understands how much.....

The main swirl behind Ariana for most of the video. I did this with a MoYou London plate from the princess plate collection here. You can get this in regular size too but I love the XL for the big swirl!

My favourite!! The black diamonties are just from a bling wheel I got off eBay. I tried to base these off Ariana's sparkly sequin dress but didn't want to black glitter my nails as I wanted a textured effect.

And finally the set design with Ariana on the moped scooters. I'm actually surprised this didn't get more clip time and they decided to zoom in on Ariana's face with the pink background because I thought the coloured stripes looked amazing! I just did these with striping tape.

So these are my Problem nails. LOVE the video and the inspiration to do some nails I would never have done!!

Polishes used:
OPI - Alpine Snow
OPI - Black Onyx
OPI - Sparrow Me The Drama

Hope you enjoyed!

I'll leave you with one last Iggy. Because she is everything.
