Hi Bees! I’m so excited about my shoes and wanted to share my problem-solving success!
So I LOVE LOVE LOVE my shoes, but oh no!…when I had them on with my dress at my final fitting the rhinestones kept catching on the bottom of the dress :/. It took me forever to find just the right pair of blue shoes – I probably ordered 6 different pairs to try on! When I got these I was just so excited that they were perfect – right color, had some bling, and were flats. I didn’t even think about how the rhinestone settings might snag the dress and trip me up!
But, never fear! Clear nail polish to the rescue! I’ve spent the last couple of evenings painting on several coats of clear nail polish to try and make the rhinestone bows smooth enough so they don’t snag on anything. Since the rhinestones are dark and not clear I wasn’t too worried about dulling them or taking away their sparkle. And given how smooth they feel now, it was totally worth it! No more catching on the dress…and no more worries I’ll trip on my walk down the aisle.
Now I can hardly wait the 16 days until I get to wear them!
