Artsy Wednesday: Inspired by shoes

Another Artsy Wednesday! Here is my mani:



And these are the shoes they were inspired by, my going-out shoes. They are so, so awesome. Basic arithmetic: glitter + metallic + wedges + padded ball = amazeballs.



They're super comfortable, and high enough to make me average-height. I have another pair in blue. Don't judge me.



I did a laser tape mani (ulta3 Gold Rush and ulta3 Black Satin) with a large hex glitter accent nail. Yeah, I put them on individually with a pair of tweezers, it took forever and I'm never doing that again (never = til I forget the pain). There's got to be an easier way... maybe lining them up on a table and rolling my nail on them? I should've put more topcoat over them - I lost 8 glitters after an hour of dance class!

    1. The shoes are to die for! AND they were only $50! With free shipping and a complimentary pair of ball-cushion gel pads! I already had them in blue so I showed a friend to try to get her to convince me not to buy them, but she didn't even try.
