DIY Cap Toe Shoes

For my 4th DIY, I'm recreating a trend that I'm currently obsessed with! 
{And no it's not chevrons this time} 
It's.... 

The first time I saw this look was on my gal Gwyneth....so you KNOW I had to follow suit! 


I've given in and bought a couple pairs but when I saw a tutorial on Pinterest and knew I could be recreating this look on my own shoes for much less than they retail for.

The ones I own have metallic caps, so I was in need of a a neutral pair that I could wear just about anything.  {Unfortunately these Zara shoes are sold}


I had a pair of tan pointy toe shoes from GoJane ($22) that I thought would work perfectly.  I also found a really old pair of flats that I thought I'd add a little pop of color to as well.



I was deciding between yellow or red for the flats and decided to go with red.



I think it was the leather material that caused the need for multiple coats.  Not a huge deal, just took more time than the tan shoes. 



I decided to give the red a quick top coat of shiny sealant because my paint dried pretty muted and I wanted shiny red! 

Like all my other DIY projects, I get crazy and want to do this to all my shoes!
What do you think?!?
