As I said in a previous DIY post, I well and truly represent all the unskilled lemons with fat fingers out there and without a sewing machine (STILL haven't got one….the boyf's bday pressie had to come first…), I can still only attempt what monkeys would try and do. Except that's an insult to monkeys who are in fact highly intelligent creatures so I'll just say that anybody who's a lemon with fat useless fingers can do this….
As unskilled as I am though, I haven't quite completely lost my head and when embarking on DIYs, I try to keep the raw material costs down because I then don't start weeping if it all goes horribly wrong. Therefore I chose these Zara grey ankle boots which I didn't buy from Zara at all but got them for ¬£2.50 from eBay instead (cheeeeeapskate alert!) to trickle my favourite shade of nail polish over the toes and heels. I've been addicted to Rimmel's Coralicious after about a year and a half of wearing no nail polish. It's an all or nothing kind of thing hence why I'm getting into lippie again.
Since I had nothing to lose but a pair of useless grey patent boots that were gathering dust, I got trickle-happy. Pouring nail polish felt very decadent for some reason. Though, the fumes coming from the polish may have been so heady as to render me feeling like I was some evil wench-bitch character in a period drama, and thus the association between decadence and pouring nail polish.
It needs a few more coats and trickles but I'm fairly happy to wear them out with the similarly coralicious over-the-knee socks (first and last time you will see me adding "-licious" do anything but de…).
