DIY Colored Soles Make Your Pumps New Again
Every lady has a pair of black pumps that are their “go-to’s”, me included. Mine had gotten quite worn in and were in need of a little make over. I am head over heels (no pun intended) for the red soled Louboutin’s, yet those are obviously not in my budget just quite yet. When I decided to paint the soles of my pumps, I opted out of red, because that’s just plain tacky- if you can’t have the real thing, don’t knock it off. I ended up going with a fabulous Tiffany teal like color, and they turned out amazing!
Step by Step Instructions:
Prep your shoes by cleaning the soles with rubbing alcohol, this well help the color stick better.
Prime your shoes with white nail-polish. You can use the nail polish brush, but I suggest getting one a little bit bigger so it goes faster. Once you paint the sole of each shoe, let them dry (should take about 10 minutes).
Clean your brush between colors using nail polish remover, and start painting the soles the color of your choice. You will probably need two coats, yet be sure to let the first coat dry before starting on your second coat.
Let dry for about thirty minutes, just to be safe & you’re done.
