Mani Monday: Sneaker Nails


Spring is upon us and we can’t let our feet have all the fun. Dazzle your tips with this DIY sneaker manicure – just follow the steps below.

What You’ll Need:

  • Colored nail polish (I used SEPHORA by OPI’s “Metro Chic”)
  • Sally Hansen’s Nail Art Pen, in both white and black
  • Clear top coat


The How-To:

  1. Paint your nails with two coats of the colored polish and let dry completely.
  2. Using the white nail pen, paint the tips of the nails (like a thick French manicure).
  3. Make the lace holes by placing eight dots on each nail with the black nail pen.
  4. Line the nail tips with the black nail pen to create the look of a Converse sneaker.
  5. With the white pen, connect the dots with diagonal lines to make the laces.
  6. Finish with a clear top coat.
