Nail Art Tutorial: Shoes on my Nails

Happy Monday everyone!  How was your weekend?  Mine was half super busy and half super relaxed!  I do know how to relax!  I was able to sleep really well,  eat and enjoy a very good cup of coffee!  This girl knows how to relax!  *winks*

I'm all ready and hyper to start this week!  Today, I will be sharing a nail art tutorial inspired by these....

Remember those original Converse Shoes that everyone seems to be wearing during *coughs* time? This is my super childish version, nevertheless, it brightened up my day and I  hope it did for you too! :)

*singing* "These shoes are made for walking..." (on the tune of These Boots are made for walking).

You can choose to do one color of shoes for all 10 nails!  I wanted my nail art to be colorful so I picked up my top 5 favorite Converse shoes color!

Step 1:
Apply your preferred coat of base coat.  Pick your favorite matte white polish and apply 2 coats of it and let dry.

Step 2:
With a thin brush, create the "outline" of the shoes.  I used LA Art Deco polish in black.

Step 3:
Create a tiny rectangular box inside the black outline as seen on photo below.  This will be the "color" of your Converse shoes.

Step 4:
With your choice of silver polish, use a nail art dotting tool and create 6 dots.  This will be the "eyelets" of the shoes.

Step 5:
With a thin brush or if you have a 2 way nail art pen in White, draw 2 "x" marks and play connect the dots!  This will come out as the shoe lace!

Step 6:
Once nail art design is COMPLETELY dry, apply a good amount of clear top coat to protect the nail art design.

Voila!  You've got shoes on your fingers!
Easy peasy nail art design I'm sure you can give it a try :)
Oh, I'm really curious, do you own a Converse shoes?
What color?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
