Paint your sunglasses if you dare!

Do you need a little help to look forward autumn with optimism? Look at the world with different eyes.
 It will instantly be a better place through the lenses of these sunglasses.
In the past years we decorated our sunglasses with roses, with jewels, glitters and so on, but have you ever dared to paint the lenses? If the answer is no is probably because you're afraid that you won't see a thing in front of you after the treatment, but that isn't necessarily true. You can have fun painting your sunglasses and they can still be used if you don't paint directly in front of your eyes. Dare to go where decorators haven't been yet, dare to paint your lenses. Don't be scared, it's just nail polish, it can be removed if you want!

The inspiration: Burberry fall 2013 heart pattern pic via Simone Ruess


You'll need:

  • sunglasses
  • nail polish
  • nail brush
  • checked paper

Use a pencil to get the shape of the frame


Draw some dots at the intersection of the grid to get a regular pattern. Try the sunglasses on and be sure to leave blank the area directly in front of your eyes.


Put the paper shape behind the lens and fasten it in place with scotch tape. Draw little hearts with nail polish over the dots. See how to draw hearts easily in my heart manicure tutorial.


Fill the space and do the same on the other side.


Wait until the nail polish dries, then wear your unique pair of sunglasses and...


Have fun!
