Yo where my Converse lovers at?!
I've got another sneakers & nails match up for you today, and it's inspired by the X-Girl x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Hi. I'm so bummed I couldn't make the cop for this one, cause the one site that carries them only ships within Japan! Anyway, I'm really excited about today's mani, so let's get on to pictures, shall we?
I actually don't own any pairs of Converse yet, but this particular pair SCREAMED my name. (That's how I know I need something, when it obnoxiously calls out to me.)
I love the colorway on the kicks. The tye dye print is fun and whimsical, while the black trim adds a punch of contrast.
As for this mani, I guess it's a little bit of everything, depending on what you want to call it. Watercolor nails, marble nails, tye dye nails, border nails, framed nails, outline nails--take your pick! (:
To be honest, I wasn't a fan of the border nails trend at first. It repulsed me at first, because it resembles my nails after I clean my car's intake filter--LOL.
I didn't plan on getting into the trend, until I stumbled on the X-girl Converse and thought about possible designs for it. This design came into my head, and I thought it could work! The watercolor design took a bit of work, because I had to experiment with all of my mediums to get it just right.
I filed my nails just for this design, because I prefer the trend on oval nails. I'll probably nubbinize them after this mani so I can start fresh again.
How do you like this nail shape?
Are you a fan of the border nails trend?
Should I do a tutorial for watercolor nails, or has that been done already?
Thanks for looking! :D
