Faux Crystals:

We were able to find you some wonderful instructions on how to make faux crystals using your left over nail polish at love maegan

“With an influx of styles reminiscent of the ’70s, ’90s, as well as a return of the bohemian flair in all things decor, rocks, crystals, and gemstones are rather trendy at the moment. But they’re also really expensive. If you want the look for decor purposes and not so much for the healing quality of the stones and crystals themselves, then this DIY is for you.

Living in the mountains, rocks are easy to come by, but I suggest you search your yards and streets for small and medium sized rocks with great jagged edges to create these fun artsy faux crystals. I’m going to use them as decor accents, paper weights, and maybe even adhere a few smaller ones alone or in clusters to the top of a plain box to create a unique jewelry box that’s all my own. You can even glue on heavy duty magnets to the smaller ones for great refrigerator magnets as well. Get creative!

I’m extremely excited about the way these turned out, I can’t even tell you how much I love them! The pink, blue, and purple stones are my faves. You can really see the color variations in person a lot better than in the photos.”

Now these are pretty boring, but boy do they look comfy. If you have a pair similar to these think about making one of the extra stones like you saw for the rings, and using it to dress these up. If you wanted to be really frugal, then instead of gluing the stone on, put a clip on the back of the stone. That way you can make a whole bunch to match your nail color and have the shoe clip ons to match. It used to be that you would match your purse and shoes, now you can match your nail color to your shoes. How cool is that!

Okay, you are probably thinking that this style went out years ago, but don’t fool yourself they will be back, and in some shoe stores they probably already are. Now the red is pretty bright, but if you want to soften it a bit, then why not add some glitter to the toe section? You could go with the clear glitter or for a really wow factor go for the gold glitter.
