For those of who were at The Cream event the other week, you probably saw our cute neon toe shoes we made for the event. Well, today I’m going to share how you can make them yourselves! Perfect for your wedding, party or everyday wear! I love the bright pop of color on these, but you could use any color you’d like.
• Nude Patent Pumps – I bought these from my local DSW for $40, but here is a great pair for $34 from Steve Madden that would also work great
• Pink Fluorescent Neon Spray Paint or even better Floral Spray (color even less likely to chip!)
• Packing Tape
• Old Towels (to protect your shoes when you spray)
Tape Shoes. First you’ll want to tape your shoes. The area you don’t tape is where the color will be. I taped the rubber sole also because I wanted to get a nice, clean finish. You don’t have to tape the inside of your shoes, since we will cover them with an old towel.
Next cover the shoes. Take them outside and spray 2-3 coats on the shoes (don’t use more than 3 coats as the layers of paint are too much and will most likely start to chip). Then spray the color with a sealer to protect and so it won’t chip. This one works well.
And that’s it! You are done. :) The hardest part is making sure you do a good job taping, but otherwise, so easy. Take off the tape and enjoy your fun new shoes!
We tried a pair in pink and pair in yellow – I prefer the pink, but yellow is fun too!
