Three of my cousins came down to visit for their Reading Week and so we had our annual Farewell Nail Art Party, where we stay up till 2 am to complete our nail art the night before they leave. I was uninspired last night, so I didn't end up doing anything to my own nails and did my cousin Amanda's nails instead. She was a little indecisive at first, but I let her look through my old nail art album on Facebook and images I have been collecting on Pinterest (click to check out my awesome Nail Art Board). The converse nails caught her eye and so we decided to replicate the design.
Before I go on with the fairly easy tutorial, if you are a polish hoarder, nail art addict and you are in the Markham area, check out a store called SOHO in Market Village. They have a sale going on where you purchase a mini OPI nail polish for $1.00 and get the second one 50% off! My cousins purchased about 30 mini nail polishes for themselves and their friends and ended up paying about $25 for it. Sick deal right? I don't know why it's so cheap, but I can tell you one thing though, it smells really funky. Despite the smell, there's nothing wrong with the application. It is just a little streaky in the first coat, but a second coat fixes that right up. Anyways, if you head there have fun looking through the bins and bins of nail polishes!
- Any base colours of your choice
- White Polish
- Black Polish
- Apply two coats of colored polish of your choice and allow it to dry.
- Using your white polish, paint an upside down "C" on the tip of your nail and fill it in. I like to create the outline by painting it horizontally and then filling it vertically.
- Using a dotter, create six dots down the nail. Make sure they are parallel to each other.
- Next, use a toothpick and white nail polish to create small "x's" to represent the shoe lace.
- Finally, dip your toothpick in black nail polish and create a wide "U" near the tip of nail.
I think the next time I do this nail art, I want to add some patterns to it since Converses comes in all colors and patterns. Anyways, I hope you enjoy this short tutorial!
