Glitter Converse Shoes Makeover

With how fast kiddos grow, sometimes shoes are still in good shape by the time they out grow them. Which is exactly the case when Mr.N out grew his Converse shoes. I told Miss.A she could have them but her 1st thoughts were… “they look like boys shoes!” So my crafty mind instantly thought well… how about we upcycle them into new girly looking shoes! She loved the idea so we went to Target to pick up some glitter & new laces then while she was at school I got to work to surprise her with her new shoes.

Supplies

  • Shoes
  • Laces {ours were only $1 at Target in the party supplies section}
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint Brush
  • Glitter
First wash then remove old laces. Then paint Mod Podge on one part of the shoe. I found that doing this in sections was easier, as the Mod Podge will sometimes dry before your ready for the glitter. READ MORE >>>

Floral Nails For Spring

This Spring floral is making a huge come back on the runway and in all the great style magazines. {Have you seen the floral jeans making a come back?} Miss. A and I love doing our nails together and having girl time. So we decided that we’d do a little shopping and get some straight off the runway nails. With Spring break ending for her it was a great time to get her nails all pretty for back to school.

Sally Hansen WalgreensWe started off by shopping online at Walgreens.com using our Balance Rewards card to get extra points. We picked up some new to us of Sally Hansen products, they had a buy one Salon Effects & Insta Dri, get one half off sale which made for great savings! {Plus we got free shipping} I was amazed at how quick our order came, shopping online is one of the best ways. {you can sit outside enjoying the sun with the kids & go shopping at the same time!}

Sally Hansen Nail TutorialAfter our order came in the mail, Miss.A was of course was so excited she couldn’t wait for the fun to begin! We decided that we’d try out the Spring Fever Salon Effects {very fitting name… since we have Spring Fever!} first so we matched it up with some Sally Hansen 770 Rock Bottom Hard As Nails polish we already had on hand and got to work. I wanted to do a combo of the two and Miss. A said that it would be “fresh” to do a diagonal since it’s something different. {and that’s what the runway is all about… something different and new!} I finished it off with Mega Shine top coat, it says it will help keep your look for up to 10 days. {which is something I really need, polish usually comes off right away for me}

I offered to help Miss. A but she insisted that she was a big girl now and can do this all on her own. Thankfully I had ordered the No More Mistakes clean-up pen, boy did that come in handy… for both of us! ha ha {It is so much easier then a Q-Tip and polish remover.} She did floral on every other nail then purple and stripes using the nail art pen on the others, I think she did a great job for using the new products for the 1st time!

Sally Hansen Nails We had a blast with our girls night in nail fun this weekend. This Miss.A couldn’t wait to show off her nails at school today! If you’re looking for more inspiration check out Sally Hansen on Facebook for more awesome nails {plus they are having a contest!}
