Fancy Frugal Life: DIY Converse Nails Tutorial

DIY Converse Nails Tutorial

Pin It

Hi friends! Here's what I just did while watching the Superbowl with my little fam. Speaking of Superbowl..Madonna still rocks. We were all vogue-ing right along :) That was a great show, right?!

Anyways, I took this opportunity to actually paint MY nails. My inspiration was this great channel on YouTube by Cutepolish.

Here's what I used. Black and white nails stripers (long thin brush), black, pink, white polish, and a pen & toothpick for "dotting".

1. I painted all my nails 2 coats of pink.
2. With the striper do a white outline on the nail tip. (Like a french tip)
3. Fill it in with the white polish.
4. Make 3 silver dots down each side of nail with a pen or bobby pin.
5. Make laces with the white striper.
6. With a toothpick dot some black on top of the silver. (They should be smaller dots.)
7. Make a black stripe across the top with the striper.
8. I just did my 3 middle fingers. Make sure it's dry before you clear coat.

Isn't that super fun! I love a cute pink converse...Wouldn't turquoise be cool too? Try it!

Thanks for stopping by!!! xo

Wow!Amazing hand skills - and you give a whole new meaning to "let your fingers do the walking!" Maybe you're too young to know what that means...:)
