Shoe Hack

Without resorting to buying new shoes, I’ve been wanting to update my shoe wardrobe so have been stalking sites like Brit & Co, Pinterest and DDG Daily for ideas and last night, I put the first one to the test. Chevron nail polish hand drawn soles for my regular black work heels. The polish I used was a nail art pen as I didn’t quite trust myself with a regular brush to get easy lines (and was too lazy to grip up a template) and the results are pretty impressive. I mean, impressive for a first go and all. (ignore the mud and dirt, I know I need to polish my shoes!)

It’s now official – I have the hack bug. Clearly this needs to be taken up a notch. I’m thinking glitter, mini paintings and possibly something textural like a material. This will obviously translate to decorating the front of my shoes too – think brightly designed toms or possibly glitter edging some heels or even switching out laces for something far more glamorous.

Any ideas?

    Great job! This looks fantastic and a wonderful way to re-invent your shoes 🙂

    PS: thank you for the samples, they arrived today and I really enjoyed using them!

  2. This is such a cool idea, I’ve never heard of anything like that, except people painting the soles of their shoes red in a bid to make it look like a Louboutin!
