DIY Shoe Refresh

I’ve got this pair of yellow shoes in my closet, and though they’re all scuffed, I just can’t seem to give them up.

Though they’re a heel, they’re super comfy, and I love the shape. But they’re pretty trashed – so what’s a shoe loving girl to do?

Refresh them, of course!

Using a little bit of nail polish, I covered over the black (and one oddly red) scuff marks, and gave my yellow sandals an on-trend neon makeover. I think they’ll need a third coat before wearing, but I’m mostly happy with the results.

Do you ever attempt DIY projects with nail polish?
