Doc Marten Nails #NOTD
A few days ago one of my good friends from high school posted a link on my Facebook wall: The 5 Most Baffling Things About Pinterest: Explained (warning, it’s Cracked.com; you may lose your afternoon). He was mocking my newfound love of nails and nail photography and nail blogging and nails nails nails.
In response, another good friend from high school showed up and added to the exchange, and then tagged in yet another good friend from high school. The four of us used to spend our days together, like a tight-knit little gang. And this momentary exchange brought us all back together again. God, I love the internet.
The photo featured in the article shows Chuck Taylors rendered as nail art. At the end of the Facebook exchange one of my friends reminded the rest of us that my shoe choice at the end of high school was a pair of 10-hole Doc Martens with bright purple laces. Ogod they were gloriously 90s.
The above photo is how they looked new. Want to see what they look like now? These are 20-year-old boots, worn daily until the soles cracked through, and then stored in a closet for a decade and a half.
So I figured, they think they can call my bluff by laughing at the ridiculous notion of purple laced boot nails? I’LL SHOW THEM!
That’s right, liquid leather nails with bright purple “laces.” I love how it turned out. And the gloss is just out of this world. Combat boot nails? Nailed it.
