Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by Shoes!


Good morning!  How are you all today??  It's Tuesday again which means it is time for another Twinsie Tuesday.  Time is just flying by again.  It's already January 13th, I swear Christmas was yesterday.

Today for Twinsie Tuesday we are sharing manicures which are inspired by our shoes!  Since it's winter time, my shoes are rather boring.  I basically go from knee high black boots, to mid calf black boots, or my fake Ugg boots which are also black!  I didn't want to just share a swatch of black polish, so I started to think about all the different shoes I own.

Then it hit me, my favorite pair of Converse!  Yes, they are also black, but they are so unique!  A few years ago for my birthday, all I wanted was a pair of polka dot Converse, and my parents found me a really awesome pair!  The eyelets are random colors which match the polka dots on the inside of the shoe.  Instead of the shoes being laced through the eyelets, the laces goes inside along the tongue so the polka dots on the inside really show.  It's hard to fully explain, but I did include a photo of them at the bottom of this post.

Enough of my babbling, let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • Orly - Liquid Vinyl
  • Zoya - Tilda, Wendy
  • Random Acrylics
Fun right?  I followed my Converse Nail Art Tutorial to get the sneaker itself on my nail.  Instead of the normal white eyelets, I matched the pattern on my pair of Converse.  Since I couldn't get all six on one nail, I split them up between the pointer and the thumb.  For the other fingers, I tried to match the polka dot pattern on the inside of the sneakers.



Now that I see the photo below, I forgot that they had rainbow stitching on them which matches the polka dots!  It's been awhile since I've worn them since I refuse to wear them in the snow and salt.  I did once last year and my poor feet were so so cold.  Canvas shoes never mix with the snow!


Look how awesome they are.  I'm so sad they're rather beat up....I hope I can find another pair which is like them.  If not, I'll have to get the galaxy pair I saw the other day in the store.  Or just wear the cute pink laced ones which are in the photo next to them.  I may or may not have a Converse obsession.  I love them so so much.

What do you think?  Fan of the manicure?  Jealous of my sneakers?
