i don’t need kate spade to make my feet pop

I’ll be the first to admit- I am in love with Kate Spade’s new line of nude shoes with neon tips. But if you, like myself, don’t have $250 to drop on a pair of flats that are going to be out of season after 3 wears, you may find this DIY tutorial worth checking out.

• Nude Patent Pumps – These are from 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.
