What does a corset have to do with sneakers? Well nothing really but have you ever had an idea in your head that you couldn’t quite translate in reality? This is what happened to me here. I wanted to do some simple corset nails but the choice of colours as well as the technique has me thinking it looks more like sneakers to me. You decide.
So first off, and for the original idea of a sexy corset I choose to go with a red base using the famous Ruby Pumps from China Glaze. This red is a classic colour with gorgeous shimmer to wow!
Next you want to use either a thin stripper brush black polish or black acrylic paints to create semicircles starting from top to bottom on either side of you nail. It should look like this.
Then just fill the semicircles in with your black.
Next using some white polish or acrylic paint in my case, add four dots in the middle of each semi-circle. At this point they look like little vests without the ties.
Now connect the dots in a criss cross pattern. This is where I feel the corset went off for me. In a real corset you want to make the top connections larger going into smaller (to represent the tighter waistline), and then back out larger again. In sneakers, all of your criss cross lines can be the same. I also feel the white is a bit too harsh against the black and red, so maybe I should have used black instead to make this design sultrier. Oh well!
So just add your top coat and you’re done!
Happy Corsets! Or Sneakers!
They are so cool! I think it could either way. I can see them as sneakers or corsets. :]ReplyDelete

Hmm looks like a corset. However, i would love to see the red color replaced with a flesh tone color. Then maybe there would be no mistake that it's a corset. Anyway, i like the look.ReplyDelete
