D.I.Y BRITISH FLAG SNEAKERS
NAIL ART DESIGN
Just a few days until christmas. So let’s party in style.
Red and blue is the color. British and american flag are trending in fashion big time. I love trends, gotta have it or gotta make it. And today we will make it. As you all know, I am all about looking fabulous and in style BUT on a budget. It’s the festive season but that doesn’t mean you can’t save some cash, remember new years is coming and valentine and probably somebody’s birthday too. I love looking good, but sometimes I just can’t afford it or I can’t find it, so i make it! Let’s do these bad boys! It’s easy, It’s cheap and it’s DOPE!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
– Fabric Paint (blue and red)
– Newspaper or plastic bag
You can get sneakers for as little as 500ksh or less. mine are old shoes I got last year and stopped wearing them because I didn’t take care of it well so I ruined the fabric. The paint is 80ksh each and is enough for 2 pairs of shoes. There are different types of paint make sure you get fabric paint. You can get it in town or downtown at any shop that sells tailoring items.
STEP 1: Remove your shoes laces because you don’t want to put paint on them. Cut your tape in half to get small pieces of tape and use the tape to draw linings on your shoes. Where you will put the tape is the area that will remain white. REMEMBER that you must protect the bottom of the shoe so your paint doesn’t go overboard.
STEP 2: According to the British flag, apply the colors where they are supposed to be. You can use my illustration or you can download an image of the flag and use that to guide you.Use the Q-tip to fill in the small areas.
STEP 3: Let the paint dry for about 30 minutes. While you are waiting; do your nails!
:-D. You will need red nail polish, white nail polish and your top coat. Always apply a base before applying any kind of nail polish to protect your nails from discoloration. Take your time wit the zigzag if you are a beginner and for the dots, just drop some nail polish on your nail, very lightly to obtain the small dots. Don’t forget the black nail polish for Santa’s eyes. You can choose to add the zigzag, leave it plain red or apply dots and zigzag. I just love to stand out. Lol. I usually have difficulties designing my right hand so what I do is, I keep it simple without any designs.
AND YOU HAVE IT!
STEP 4: Remove the tape from the shoes, put your shoe laces back on and show off!!
THERE WE HAVE IT. TURNING OLD TO GOLD, BORING TO FABULOUS!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VISITING
