Since celeb news was lame again this week, I decided to try a quick DIY after work.
I came across this page in my September Glamour, which showcased white sunnies. I didn’t really like white sunglasses, but after seeing this I decided that I did. I realized that a crisp pair of white sunglasses was everything I’ve ever wanted… until I attempted to make my own.
I grabbed a bottle of white nail polish, an old pair of sunnies, and my pugs.
The pugs decided to bring their bad behavior outside too.
I thought that this was a really good idea (I saw something involving nail polish and sunglasses on pinterest). I LOVE the Covergirl Outlast nail collection, it dries quick, and you don’t need a topcoat… so I thought that it would be the perfect polish to paint my glasses with. Shizz hit the fan as soon as I painted my first line. The nail polish dried a little too fast when I used a thin layer, and the coverage was uneven. That’s when I decided to start painting extremely thick lines/blobs. I was pretty much just letting the polish drip onto my sunnies, because that’s the only way I could get even coverage. I have no patience at all and I kept touching wet polish, this ruined everything. I guess patience really is a virtue.
After my bizarre second layer, I was like frock this. I balled up my paper towel + sunglasses, and threw them away. My sunnies were runny, clumpy, and stuck to my paper towel… total fail. I would highly recommend never ever painting sunglasses with nail polish, just buy a pair. I wasted like an hour of my life, and now I’m itchy from mosquito bites.
Shop White Sunglasses:
Seriously, just buy a pair. These are all under $20…
1. Asos, $10.13 – J’adore the retro shape.
2. Forever 21, $5.80 – White + black is still hot.
3. Target, $12.99 – You can never go wrong classic wayfarer’s.
Sometimes, a bitch needs a beer (like after this DIY). Happy Friday.
