The Sun shone a teensy bit today, despite it being -2 degrees. Nevertheless, it’s unleashed my inner Yellowphile and the next few tutes will be about how to yellow-up your life! Starting with the very un-seasonal
YELLOW NEON SUNGLASSES!
This one is totes easy peasy and there’s no reason why you have to do it yellow. You know the rainbow, pick a colour.
You will need:
Sunglasses (the cheaper the better I guess, but no accounting for taste. I picked these up for 50p a pair in Primark)
White Nail Polish
Yellow Nail Polish (or a colour of your choice)
Gloss/ Clear Nail Polish
A bit of ribbon
Super Glue/Fabric Glue
(you can leave the ribbon and glue bit out if you want to paint the nose-ridge thingy on the glasses instead of cover it. I just had this urge to cover the whole flipping thing in ribbon because I love ribbon. Just doing the bridge was my compromise).
Here’s how you do it!
- Coat the plastic bit of the glasses with the White nail polish. I don’t think I need to say that you don’t have to cover the lenses, too. Unless that’s your thing.
LET IT DRY
Depending on the quality of the nail polish/ the thickness of your strokes, you might want to give them another coat of White. I didn’t, but my polish was really thick.
Coat the glasses with the Yellow polish (or whatever polish you chose) – don’t be shy! All in one direction! If you keep a really wet brush, you’ll wind up with block-colour, if you keep your brush dry it’ll give them a more antiqued look. It’s up to you! I kept it thick and wet 😉
LET IT DRY. You have to let it dry.
Coat them with Gloss.
….LET IT DRY.
