My first official DIY on the blog!
From the moment I saw these Roberto Cavalli snake skinned heels with the neon accents, I was hooked! Firstly it's Cavalli and snake skin, something I would have KILLED for!!
I then remembered, I had faux snake skin shoes too! This called for a DIY!
Since my shoes have this teal-ish tint at places, I thought of staying away from neon, and hence I decided to go for purple instead. However my first choice was a sea green..
So all I actually used is the acrylic paint and a brush. You can also use nail paint instead of acrylic paint.
And I started to paint along the stitch lines..
Once I finished a coat, I went back and checked which other places needed 'touching up'. Off course I did alternate between both shoes, giving them each 4-5 minutes to dry.
I also decided to make the front part a little thicker than the rest.
And after adding the final touches..
I know the colour is clashing with my table!!
And yes I did go overboard with the pictures! There are about 96 pictures only of the shoes. They were a pleasure to work with!
