Some Sparkly Shoes!

Besides recovering from a really nasty sinus infection-type thing, here’s what I’ve been up to the last few days:

Yes, I covered a pair of shoes in Swarovski rhinestones.  They are sparkly beyond belief and quite heavy. It took several thousand rhinestones, about 20 hours and 2 tubes of glue…but they’re done.

I need sparkly shoes because I’m making it official with Mr. NTMG next month. I figured I’d best stick with a man who doesn’t mind finding random rhinestones in his pasta or glitter in the carpet. Hard to believe, it’s happened so fast, but it’s time to change my name and start the next chapter of my life!

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.

      You can bling flats too! :) As long as they’re fairly stiff and don’t bend too much, any shoe is bling-able.

        Congratulations Jen! Very happy for you. The most important advice for my wedding was this, “amid all the hustle and bustle take a minute with your intended and just be in the moment together”. Hope your day is fabulous!

      • nevertoomuchglitter says:

        Aw, thank you! It sounds like lovely advice and I fully intend to take it! :) It’s going to be a very mellow day with just 9 of us and a simple ceremony on the beach. No shoes, no tuxes, just a chill day (or so I’m hoping!)

  5. Marina says:

    Now that’s some news, congratulations!!! The shoes are magnificent, but İ can only imagine how heavy they must be:)

    • nevertoomuchglitter says:

      They are pretty heavy, but we’re not dancing or anything, so I think I can manage. I’ll just sit quietly and sparkle. :)

    Congrats! Have fun, and loooving the bling bling shoes. Just don’t do as I did… I fell two months before the wedding so I couldn’t wear my bling shoes :(

    • nevertoomuchglitter says:

      Yikes! I’ll be extra careful! Luckily I wear flat sandals every day so I hope I won’t trip over my own feet. I hope you could wear your bling shoes for your 1st anniversary!
