My inspiration to make these sunglasses came from the cute striped sunglasses by Dolce and Gabbana. As much as I love them, for trendy sunglasses I just cant bring myself to pay the price, especially when you can make your own for under $20!DIY Blue & White Striped Sunglasses Inspiration

TOOLS & MATERIALS:

  • 1 Pair sunglasses (mine are c/o Sunglass Warehouse)
  • Nail polish (I used L’oreal #540 ‘jet set to paris’)
  • Tape

DIY Blue and White Striped Sunglasses Supplies
step 1
Decide how you want to paint your stripes.

How wide, how many and placement.

step 2
Cut small pieces of tape and place them across the front and top of your sunglasses.

TIP: Make sure your tape is very smooth and secure on your sunglasses, you dont want the nail polish to bleed under your tape.DIY Blue and White Striped Sunglasses Taping
