    Step 1

    For my bestfriend's birthday, I decided to personalize a gift which I knew she'd cry over (AND SHE DID! hehehe) Being the little geek that she is, galaxy sneakers were the "perfect fit" ;) ENJOY!

    Step 2

    PREP: Get all your materials together

    Step 3

    Grab your shoes and tape...

    Step 4

    And tape the bottoms. So that the soles remain clean at the end.

    Step 5

    Take a brush (size DOESN'T MATTER lol) and start dabbing on galaxy colors.

    Step 6

    NOW, lay down a mat/ newspaper or brown paper bag. Dip your toothbrush into white paint and run your fingers over the bristles to get a splotch effect :) stars!

    Step 7

    Then personalize your shoes! I just drew over the background with shooting stars. What y'all think?

    Step 8

    Background colors I chose: Shades of Blue, Purple, Black and White.

    Step 9

    Now it's time to be tedious and do the clean up. Take the nail polish remover and your Q-tip and get the metal studs clean.

    Step 10

    Step 11

    There ya go! xoxo

    Step 12
