Pintertesting: Glitter Heels

I've had these glitter heels for awhile. And as far as I'm concerned, a girl can never have too much glitter! So when I saw these pins start popping up on Pinterest, I knew I had to try and recreate. Originally, I was just going to go monochromatic. Blush glitter on bottom to match the top. But my glitter-tastic friend, Heather, suggested I do a different color.

"Oh, yes!" I said. "Black, maybe?"
"No," said Heather. "I'm thinking NAVY."

Hello...she's a genius.

So off to Michael's I did go to get myself some Martha Stewart glitter in Navy. Or as Martha likes to call it: Azurite. It just so happened to be the busiest day of December EVER in Michael's that day. I think I spent more time in line trying to pay for 1.5 ounces of Azurite, than I did glittering up the pair of shoes! But I digress. About 30 minutes and 2 coats of Modge Podge and glitter later...I took the heels outside and gave the bottoms a good coat of clear acrylic sealer. I've worn them 4 times and they still look great! Pinterest FTW.
