Use one colour to paint your thumb all over the nail. You may need to do two coats for a block colour.

Step 3: Paint the Tip of the Shoe

What an amazing design. I grew up wearing Converse and Jack Purcell in the late 60's. The real test in your abilities is to show us your right hand nails. Thanks.
