Here’s the story (I love telling them sorry) I’ve been looking for BTS phone case for awhile now but everytime I see a Korean themed online shop, they sell hard cases. I don’t like hard cases so I just can’t buy it. (If you know where can I get BTS inspired soft cases please comment it down below). I really wanted to personalize my phone with BTS touch because..kinain na nga 😂😂
So as I was scrolling though different shops, I stumbled upon these cute popsockets and I’ve been so obsessed with them since then. Though, I also couldn’t find a design that fits me. Then one day, one of my colleagues mentioned that she saw a plain black one in the East tower building where we work at. That’s when the idea rushed in. 💡
At first, I just printed out “SEOKJIN” and pasted it on. You may see the result on my Instagram post. It was lame. Hahahaha!
Then I remembered I have poster paints stored at home. Here’s basically all you need:
- I got my plain black (whichever color you prefer) popsocket in Tektite Bldg East Tower (4th flr) for PHP100
- I looked for an old nail polish and used its brush as applicator (if you have thin brushes that’s better)
I was about to use cotton buds but it’s too thick 😂
- White (whatever color will match your popsocket) poster paint (National Book Store, PHP29.75)
- Colorless nail polish (bless my mother for having this)
- What I did first was I practiced how to write 진 using a pen and paper. Then I also tried painting it on the paper first until I thought I got it okay (not
perfectlybecause I’m not Korean anyway hahaha it may take a while to get it beautifully)
- I started writing it on the popsocket (slowly but surely)
- I waited until the paint dried out before I applied the colorless nail polish (for a slight glow and long lasting life ㅋㅋ)
I’m honestly not sure if it will last long. Maybe I should have used a stronger paint. I don’t know, at least I got what I want. Hahaha! I’m just happy to follow my hearteu. 😂
It’s nothing fancy but I hope you like it. xx
Of course, here’s me flaunting it in public. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
