Nail Polish Shoe Redo

Here's a simple and inexpensive way to redo a well-worn pair of shoes with nail polish!
I know I 've said that before, but truth is truth.
This pair of heels is one of my absolute favorites.
I dig their retro/40's/pin-up vibe!
The problem?
I have worn them out.

Exhibit A: 
Well, I had to do something about it!
I saw some nail polish at the store and thought,
"That's the same color as my shoes I can't wear any more. . . . . ."
I started by peeling and scraping off the tattered heel over-lay.
Then I got out my polish!
This particular, shoe-saving color is from Carrie Underwood's Collection from Nicole by O.P.I.
It's called Backstage Pass {Product Code: NIU07}.
I taped off the edges, upper and lower, with regular masking tape
and started to paint with the nail polish.
I found that I had to work rather quickly because it dried so easily.
I recommend doing a few coats, letting it dry for 30 minutes between coats.
I let them dry over-night before removing the tape.
 Good as new and ready to rock! Woo-hoo!!
