DIY: Color Block Sunglasses

It feels like I haven't posted in FOREVER! Midterms really ate up a lot of my time, but now that it's SPRING BREAK, I can dive back into posting new DIYs. :)

This spring break I have been surrounded by girls in bright colors (neon especially) and a LOT of color blocking. However, one item I haven't seen color blocked is a cute pair of shades.

With a pair of sunglasses and some bright nail polish colors, you can make your own in under 30 minutes.

My white sunglasses are from Free People with cool eagles and stars on the lenses.

If you don't have a pair of white sunglasses, run out and get a cheap pair, or use an frames that are lying around at home and prime it with white nail polish.
 The white is very important because you want the colors to turn out bright

If you're brave enough, pop out the lenses before you paint the frames.
 If not use painters tape and carefully cover the lenses. 

Choose large sections to devote one of your colors to. 
When your done, you will have fun, bright, color blocked sunglasses.




  1. love all the color combo!

  2. thank you :) I never wore these glasses when they were white but now i'm obsessed with them :)
