SUPER SUNNIES: 2 DIYs with Call It Spring

 
Since we have a penchant for anything a lil’ kookier than your average, we took it upon ourselves to jazz up two pairs of sunnies from Call It Spring. Though they were fun, candy-coloured numbers on their own, all we needed was a little time and nail polish to kick them up a notch. So grab your CrEaTiViTy HaTz, boys and girls, we’re goin’ on a DIY adventure!!!!!!!!!!!
 

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
Call It Spring sunglasses with a thicker frame
– Masking or painter’s tape
– X-acto knife
– White nail polish
– Scissors
– Black nail polish
 

STEP 1:
Completely cover the lenses in tape
 

STEP 2:
Use an X-acto knife to trim the excess
 

STEP 3:
Coat the frames in 3 layers of white nail polish. Be sure to wait for each layer to dry before applying a new one!
 

STEP 4:
Cut 4-inch pieces of tape lengthwise into thinner strips.
 

STEP 5:
Space the tape strips equally across the dried frames.
 

STEP 6:
Coat the exposed parts with black nail polish.
 

STEP 7:
Carefully peel off the tape. We didn’t wait for the black nail polish to dry to avoid cracking or chipping. You can also touch up any stray marks using nail polish remover.
 

STEP 8:
Set the sunglasses to dry before wear — preferably surrounded by plastic flowers because #cute.
