My DIY Christian Louboutin YoYo Fuchsia Strass


So I decided to strass (crystalize) my Christian Louboutin YoYo 100s with Fuchsia crystals. They were originally a Rose colour and I love pink, it’s my favourite colour so I wanted pink strass. Unfortunately Msr Louboutin hasn’t done any pink strass yet so I decided to do it myself with a lower price tag as well. So many of the lovely ladies on The Purse Forum have done the same thing as well and theirs turned out brilliantly. It’s taken me a month so far to complete one shoe as I am doing it on and off πŸ™‚ I’m keeping this page to update with progress photos all the time, so keep checking back on it. I’m having the most fun doing it but it is very repetitive putting each crystal on with tweezers after dipping it in glue… So far on just one shoe I think I have used almost 2000 crystals.

There was also a big discussion about strassing your own Louboutin shoes on The Purse Forum as so many of us have done it and I really think it’s a way of having a shoe that you have no access to getting, a shoe that is completely unique, a shoe that has been customized to exactly how you want it and nothing more. I would never try to pass these shoes off as a strassed shoe that Msr Louboutin himself made at all, I will always tell people I have done it myself. I’m really pleased with how the one shoe has turned out so far. I don’t consider it as cheating instead of buying a Louboutin shoe already strassed. This shoe doesn’t exist as Louboutin has never designed these colours so that’s why I did it, I wanted pink strass and I was happy to do it myself πŸ™‚

Anyway, here is what I have used so far: Christian Louboutin Rose YoYo 100 shoes, Gem Tac glue, Fuchsia Swarovski flat back crystals in sizes 20ss, 16ss, 12ss, 10ss, 9ss and 6ss/5ss to fill the little gaps, Fuchsia AB Swarovski flat back crystals in size 16ss, tweezers and paper to put the crystals and the glue on.

Here is one shoe from start to finish:



I said I would be updating with photos as I went and I haven’t had much time spare to do a lot of work on the left shoe. I have been so busy lately with everything that these shoes got pushed to the side a bit unfortunately as they just take up so much time. I have made a start on the left shoe though and I am really pleased with the progress. I seem to be doing this shoe a lot faster than I did the right shoe, I assume that’s because I’ve become really used to it now πŸ™‚ Anyway, here are the photos.

Here are some more updated photos of the left shoe πŸ™‚ I have now ran out of 9ss crystals though so I need to buy some more of those.

  2. They are so cute but Lorna you must be a billionnaire you have so much Louboutin !!! They are so much prettier than they were at the begining….Where do you find loubs on sale ?

  3. Lol, I’m no where near a billionaire, quite the opposite. I just literally spend every single penny I have on clothes and shoes. I’ve been collecting Louboutins since the beginning of August 2009 so quite a lot of months πŸ™‚ You have to wait for sale season for them to go on sale, normally around Christmas time and mid year, around May should be the next sale so check out Barney’s, Saks, Neimen Marcus etc πŸ™‚ I also got a lot of really good deals on Ebay, watch out for the fakes though, there are so many! Make sure you get authentic ones πŸ™‚ Thanks for the compliment though! πŸ˜€

  4. Hey Lorna, Your pink strass YoYo’s are divine!
    I’m so glad i followed this link after drooling over your YoYo DIY on TPF. I’ve just won a pair of yoyo’s on ebay and plan to strass them like you did – so thanks for having so much useful information. you’ve solved my number one issue: working out how many crystals to order πŸ™‚

  5. It also depends on your shoe size πŸ™‚ I ordered about 2000 to start out with and the most amounts were 12ss and 9ss πŸ™‚ Those ones you seem to use the most. Good luck! What colour combination are you doing?

  6. I’ve ordered about 5000 crystals in sizes ss5, 7, 9, 10, 12, 16 and 20. (shoe size 36) so I hope that will be enough for both shoes and maybe a few left over for other craft projects!

    I’m going to be strassing pewter yoyo’s with crystal AB. My first shipment of crystals arrived today, and they are so beautiful! I can’t wait to get started, but i’m going to wait until all the different sized crystals arrive, in a week or two!

  7. Hi Lorna! It’s Joyce at Skye. You did an amazing job!! They look incredible. I feel like I would have gotten tired of doing it 30 minutes in, lol

  8. Hey!!
    Yeah it is really tiresome! I had to do it in stages over the month because it gets really boring but I just kept focusing on the outcome πŸ˜€ Thank you!!

  9. hello, wow these shoes are BEAUITFUL i love them.. you have a wonderful talent to be able to do this…can you please email me directley i have a few questions about these shoes.

  10. Hi Penny πŸ™‚ You can buy the crystals online anywhere, ebay or from sites but make sure you are buying authentic Swarovski, the cheap ones from China etc are not real and don’t shine very well πŸ™‚ I only used a pair of tweezers to pick up the crystals and I used GemTac glue which you can find on ebay too. I used that glue cause it’s basically odourless and I am sensitive to smells πŸ™‚ You will need a lot of crystals though, somewhere in the 2000 range from sizes 20SS to 7SS πŸ™‚ Have you definitely checked those Louboutins are authentic?

  11. Dear Lorna, No I havnt as Im still unsure which style I should DIY.. at the moment I have 2 in mind.. one is a pair of patent you you I own but they are still brand new.. so Im not sure if I want to use them.. now i see this on ebay

    http://cgi.ebay.com/CHRISTIAN-LOUBOUTIN-YOYO-TORTOISE-GLITTART-SHOE-PUMP-39-/260621208267?cmd=ViewItem&pt=US_Women_s_Shoes&hash=item3cae3c0acb

    If i use this.. will be be ok? as the heels are different from yours πŸ™‚

    Thank you so much for your help!! I still couldnt stop myself drooling over your pair of strass!!!!

  12. I’m not 100% sure how well glue on patent will work, it might be a bit slippery and hard to get the crystals to stick as the material isn’t porous or rough for it to stick to properly. I’ve never tried with patent. I also think the gold metal heel might be a bit tricky to work with, again I don’t know if the glue would stick the crystals to it properly, they might fall off. I think the safest option would be fabric like satin, non patent leather and canvas πŸ™‚

  13. I love your shoes. I plan on doing a pair for my wedding shoes, but in a jade color. What order did you put the crystals?

  14. I put them in any random order, I started out with the bigger 20ss and then put the 16ss then the 12ss and just filled the gaps accordingly πŸ™‚

  15. hi I LOVE your shoes, I taught they were like that from the beggining:P you have done a really good job πŸ™‚ maybe I will do that with one of my shoes as well πŸ˜› I love pink, and I think that it is a little bit Sex and the City feeling, about your shoes, toatally love them. Please visit my blog, and drop a comment πŸ˜‰

    Ps. Iam from Sweden, so maybe you donΒ΄t understand what I am writing, but it would be fun, to se what you think about the blog πŸ™‚ Were are you from? Bye πŸ™‚ /

    my blog: andreaedanius.blogg.se

  16. Awh thank you Andrea πŸ™‚ that’s really kind of you. I understand your English perfectly and I will take a look at your blog soon! πŸ™‚

  17. Just curious. Why not do all one size crystal in the smallest size? I know with using different sizes…the smaller size is to fill in the gaps…just curious why not do all of the smallest size.

    Don’t get me wrong…you did an amazing job! Just curious why different sizes.

  18. Because it doesn’t look as good, all one size leaves some gaps and it looks like it doesn’t blend in properly. I wanted to do it like Louboutin does it, he uses all different sizes so it blends well πŸ™‚

  19. Hello Lorna,
    Thank you so much for posting your experience! I was wondering and I know the question is personal, would you mind telling me what size shoe you are and also would you be willing to say what the total cost was to “strass” both of these shoes. I am trying to get up the nerve to do this project, but I am afraid it will end up costing me a fortune if I make mistakes.

  20. Hi Heather πŸ™‚
    My shoe size is between 39.5 and 40, these are a 40 as they ran on the smaller side. The cost completely depends on how much you have found an authentic CL shoe for. The crystal pricing also depends on which ones you use and how big the shoe is as well. I have used regular fuchsia and fuchsia AB and so far I think the crystals alone have cost me around, maybe, Β£150? I’m not 100% sure as it’s been a long time and I’ve put many mini orders in for them, I didn’t buy one big bulk load. Which shoes are you planning on doing? πŸ™‚

  21. I’ve been wanting to do this for my bridal shoes. I noticed on the purse forums that all the girls that strassed their shoes used glue. Is there a reason why glue is being used and not the hotfix applicator?

  22. Hi Lynn, the reason we use glue is it’s stronger. The hot fix glue on the crystals only works on pourus materials like suede and canvas and even then it’s not so strong. Also with glue it’s easier to re position the crystal as it sets πŸ™‚ hope that helps!

  23. Hi Lorna (I said I was here reading!). Was just curious how it felt customizing your Louboutins in this manner. I’d assume this is a fairly permanent process, so how did you go about careful application so as to avoid error?

  24. Hi Audrey πŸ™‚ I’ve been customizing clothes and jeans and electronics since as long as I can remember, I’ve put crystals on phones before and I know how to do it as best as I can. You just need to have as much patience as possible, a really steady hand and not too much glue. Each time you dip a crystal in the glue, dab it onto some tissue to remove any excess and then place it on and push it down so it sticks, once it’s stuck a bit wipe any excess glue showing through off πŸ™‚ Eventually you can learn the right amount of glue so you don’t have to wipe it off all the time. It’s easy once you know how. Also, the good thing about GemTac is it doesn’t dry instantly so you can move the crystal around if you need to or remove it and just wipe the glue off with no problems!

  25. Hi, I just saw your shoes, I absolutely like them!! They look more pretty with the strass!! I just became a follower, nice to see fashion with other eyes!

  26. love!love!love! could you tell us the site where you got the crystals from and approx how much did you end up spending on the crystals .. i think you should become a shoe designer yourself!

  27. Thank you Seham! I got the crystals from an ebay store here in England, you have to make sure you get a trustworthy place that sells real swarovski crystals and not knock offs. I think I spent at least Β£175 on crystals alone, I’m not 100% sure it was a long time ago now but I did spend a lot of money. And that’s a really nice compliment, my aim is to be a designer one day of denim but I would love to branch out to shoes! πŸ˜€

  28. You did an excellent job! Very professional looking. Louboutin doesn’t have enough choice in regards to crystal color, so I applaud you for taking the initiative.

  29. i LOVE your shoes!!!! i have a question for you…how come you only used the 16ss in the fuchsia AB color and not more sizes in the AB color???

  30. Thank you πŸ™‚ And the reason for that was purely because I could only find the 16SS in the AB, I couldn’t find any other sizes in that colour at all.

  31. OMG I am in LOVE with your shoes!! I am having a hot pink wedding and would love to do this exact same thing! Unfortunately I cannot afford louboutin’s, do you have any other suggestions for me??

    Thanks so much πŸ™‚

  32. Hi Shantille! Congratulations on the wedding! You could try doing some DIY on any shoes, you could buy some heels which you want to wear for the day and then glitter then or put crystals on them, glittering takes all of an hour but the glitter does rub off a LOT! Crystals take forever but they stay on πŸ™‚ They don’t just have to be Louboutins, you can do it to any shoes you love!

  33. Thanks Lorna!! I appreciate your response sooo much, and the congrats on our wedding πŸ™‚ We are spending so much money on everything else, not to mention I have already bought shoes that I am not sure on anymore, that I don’t think I can afford to spend anymore than 300 dollars on a new pair. Yours would be ideal, and exactly what I am looking for!! I have been googling some shoes that are glittery and have found these ones. I am REALLY debating them as I don’t know if I am able to put the crystals on them myself. I have posted the link if you would like to take a look!! I actually searched swarkovski crystals to order them, but I cannot find any fuchsia flat backs.

    Here is the link to the shoes. http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3122908?origin=category&resultback=6210

    Thanks again πŸ™‚

  34. You are welcome! I love weddings so I am always happy for people getting married πŸ˜€

    You wont be able to stick crystals on a glittery shoe, the shoe needs to have a fabric base or soft leather base, the glue and crystals wont stick to the glitter so you need to pick a glitter shoe or a crystal shoe to have. Those ones are amazing though! I love the bright pink glitter! They look so pretty! Plus they are affordable! If you want to put pink crystals on a pair of shoes though you can use eBay, I found all of mine on there, I just typed ‘swarovski fuchsia flat back crystal’ and you want to get the foil back ones not the hot fix. It does take SO long to do them though, it takes almost an hour to do a 2 inch space.

  35. Hi Lorna πŸ™‚ I also love those glittery shoes, if I were to choose them I would definitely not not try and put crystals on them. I think I am going to buy the crystals and glue them on my shoes! I will keep you updated on my decision and/or progress on the shoes!

    Happy New Year to you πŸ™‚

  36. My wedding is July 30th, 2011! I will definitely send you some pics, i’ll update you with what I am doing as well πŸ™‚

  37. Hey, was just browsing the internet and found these shoes what you have decorated yourself they’re soooo BEAUTIFUL!!! i was just wondering what does the SS mean??? i.e. SS5 SS9 OR 9SS etc….

    these are my wedding shoes and i am hoping to decorate the black bow part with some kind of crystals’ πŸ˜€

    any idea as to what sizes? etc. thanks xx

  38. Those are really cute πŸ™‚ SS just means the size of the crystal, it’s how they determine the size. They should have a list on google or where ever you buy them from how big the sizes are in millimeters. I think you should probably use smaller crystals as they will shine a lot more on a smaller area so SS9 and SS 12 might be a good combination if you are just going with the bow πŸ™‚

  39. thank u for getting back to me, do u think i should just do the bow or should i also do the black side bits too? which’s part of the bow.x

  40. OMG I have been looking for these shoes since December I absolutely LOVE what you did I don’t own any Louboutin shoes but this inspires me. Great work on your DIY shoes!!!

  41. Hi! I’ve just been looking for info on strassing as I am wanting to give it a go myself. You have done a fabulous job! Any tips for a first timer? Also, I was wondering if you’re familiar with the Louboutin Pagalili silver studded pumps? Would you have any recommendations for me on studs to use as I am clueless as to where to even begin with this. Any help would be very much appreciated πŸ™‚ Thanks so much!

  42. Hi πŸ™‚ This was my first time doing shoes too! I’m used to things like phones and stuff so actually doing shoes is easier than it looks. I know the studded Pigalles but I would have no idea what to recommend for studs, I know about crystals but with studs I’m sure they are super expensive and I don’t know what sort of glue would hold the metal in place. You just need patience and a steady hand for strassing really, that’s all there is to it πŸ™‚ Good luck with yours!

  43. Great thanks so much. I have never strassed anything before, and I am thinking it would be a great project. I’m not looking to copy the studded pigalili, just draw inspiration from it. I cannot afford over $3000 for a pair of shoes, so I think coming up with my own take on it is okay. I would never try to pass something off as anything other than a dyi project either. Just not sure where to find flat backed studs, most of them are for putting through fabric or leather. A challenge is always good though! Thanks again πŸ™‚

  44. I’m sure you will do a great job! I didn’t copy a specific pair either, Louboutin never made any with fuchsia crystals so I did my own. I can’t afford the strass price tag either, it’s so much! I wouldn’t pass them off as real strass either, it’s wrong, plus it’s kind of cool to show people you did it yourself. If I see any flat back studs I will let you know! Are you after the spiked studs? πŸ™‚

  45. Spiked, cone, or pyramid or all three! I was actually going to do them on a pair of black pumps with black crystals and then some silver studs (or even better if they had that black looking metal kind) as accents. If you come across any, that would be wonderful! I figure using the kind that need to puncture through the shoe is too much work. I’d have to get the inner shoe recovered so they didn’t rub and irritate my feet. That may be a bigger project than I can handle! Lol. And I agree, being able to tell people you did it yourself is great!

  46. That sounds very pretty what you plan to do! If you find them, you will have to show me πŸ˜€ And yeah, the backs of the studs would hurt your feet if you pushed them through and having the fabric lining again is hard work and you would probably still fell them through it anyway.

  47. Yes I will definitely show you when I’m done (which could be awhile haha). If I can’t find studs, I’m still going to strass them with the black crystals. The studded pigalili will have to be in my dreams only LOL. Thanks so much for all your help πŸ™‚

  48. Oh my god! I can not believe! You were ingenious! These shoes are fabulous! The dream of all! Carry Bradshaw would love them!

  49. Hi Lorna, you def have heard this many time but I have to say this one more time that your shoes are amazing!!!!! I love love it. And that inspires me to diy the shoes for my wedding. This will be my first time ever so may you give me some advice Lorna? I am thinking about strassing a Pigalle Plato 120 multicolor glitter. I know glitter is nice itself but for some reason i love it to be strassed more :)). In your opinion, what glue i should use to have crystals stick on and what color should I use? I totally have no idea about anything. Could you give me your opinion Lorna? Thank so much ^^

  50. Hi Amy! Thank you πŸ™‚ I think you may have a really hard time getting the glue and crystals to stick to the shoe because the glitter wont be very sticky, the crystals would probably fall off. For the glue I would use GemTac as it’s odourless and easy to use and the crystals you need foiled flat back Swarovski ones, make sure they are Swarovski as they are shiny and the best ones πŸ™‚ What else would you like to know?

  51. Monica it’s been a slow process and I have been ordering them in a few hundred of each and the re ordering when I need to, you will use the medium sizes the most, more than the very very small 5ss and 20ss πŸ™‚

  52. Hi Lorna,
    Thank you for your info. so you mean that the foiled flat back crystals may stick on glitter?
    Also what color of crystals you recommend on multicolor glitter shoes Lorna?
    Where can I get the best crystals online?

  53. Hi Amy, no I mean no crystals will stick to glitter, I’m pretty sure they will just fall off. The flat back ones are for normal shoes without glitter πŸ™‚ You can get them on eBay or on special craft stores πŸ™‚

  54. Oh no I am so sad!! I really want to strass on my glitter shoes :(((( Do you think using a board sander might help?

  55. :(( how sad!!well maybe after a few years when i am tired of glittet i will risk using board sander and strass it :)). Thanksss a bunch for your info Lorna. :))))

  56. Hi Lorna!!!!!

    I’m getting married in August and I have been drooling over the CL Prive Riche 120 for months now. After blowing all of my mom’s money on my dress I cannot dear ask her to buy me those shoes. I am soooo happy I came across your blog because I am now so excited to strass my own CL shoes. I want maximum sparkle. should I strass a nude pair or a white pair? I am thinking about having my maid of honor help but I think I want to keep all the fun for myself πŸ™‚ (plus it will be a cool surprise). Thanks a million!!!!!!!!

  57. Hey Shirvonne! Congratulations on the wedding! You must be so excited! What colour crystals are you going to be using? That will determine what colour shoe. Also what fabric are your shoes? It is fun strassing them but it is a really really long process and if you do ask for her help you would need to make sure she’s trustworthy with the glue lol, you don’t want to ruin your shoes πŸ™‚

  58. I dont know I want it to sparkle like its Cinderella’s shoe! πŸ™‚ Kinda like the real thing but with my twist. I literally just made this decision to do this so I don’t have to shoe or crystals yet. I will start buying the shoe and crystals when I get home from vacation next week. What do you suggest?

  59. Ummm. Ok thanks!. My mind is racing so fast and my fiance is looking at me as though I am crazy! How do you think a black shoe will turn out? I will look for the combo you suggested though. Thanks a million and one! πŸ™‚

    (I feel as though I should invite you to my wedding and seat you right next to my mom…lol…my mom gave me my dream dress and you my dream shoe. If you are in Trinidad in August you are so invited!)

  60. Black shoe and black crystals? Haha that’s very sweet of you! I will attend online πŸ˜€ I wont be in Trinidad then, sorry! I’d love to see photos though!

  61. Hi Lorna,
    Love, love, love your shoes !
    I wear a size 8-1/2 shoe (US). In your opinion how many of each ss20, ss16, and ss10 crystals should I order to completely cover both shoes ? Do you think I should purchase even smaller than ss10 ?

  62. Hi πŸ™‚ Thanks! It’s so tough to say, it depends how much of a gap you are going to leave between each crystal as well. I started out with about 200 ss20, then about 600 ss16 and ss12 but I ended up buying more as I went a long. You are going to need more than that but it’s down to personal preference. It does cost a lot buying so many crystals. The smallest size I used was ss5 and that was to fill in the mini gaps, other than that I had ss9 and ss10 for the small ones πŸ™‚

  64. Hi Lorna,

    I have read through the whole blog and am truely inspired. I am an older bride and would love to re create Nicey Nash’s wedding shoes. I am looking for your expertise to guide me on what color and size crystals to buy. It looks to me like they are fixed to a white satin sling back. Here is the picture –
    http://www.bridefinds.com/2011/niecy-nash-unviels-some-fierce-swarovski-crystal-wedding-shoes-on-the-view-get-them-now/

    Thanks, and you do beautiful work!

  65. Hi πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading! It looks like you can buy the shoes online here http://www.glam-luxe.com/#!__custom-stilettos but to me the crystals look like a combination of Sapphire and Clear with either Light Sapphire or Aquamarine in between. And yep, I would say that’s a white satin sling back they are stuck too. The glue sticks well to fabric shoes πŸ™‚ Good luck with your wedding as well!

  66. Lorna,

    how do your shoes hold up to a day of wearing them? I’m planning on strassing a pair of shoes for my wedding but I’m afraid to sink so much time into this project if I’m going to have tons of crystals missing at the end of the night!

  67. Hi Amber, I haven’t worn mine yet, I haven’t finished the one shoe. A lot of people have worn theirs though and they hold up fine if you use strong glue. You would need to be delicate with them though πŸ™‚

  68. Hello!! Think you have done a lovely job of these shoes!!…the colour is really nice too…I’m thinking of doing a pair for my daughter could you please point me in the right direction of were to buy the crystals from I would be very grateful
    With thanks
    Marion πŸ™‚

  69. These look so great! Im buying these shoes soon myself, and I was wondering how they are to walk in? How high and sturdy is the heel? Cause CL’s are quite an investment, especially if I’m gonna do what you do and thus can’t return them if I regret the buy..

  70. Your shoes are very nice…. You mist have a lot of patience. I had some items done at this website. http://www.primadnd.com. They do good work, and they are not pricey. Good luck to all of you out there that can do it. I wish I had the patience. I want a pair of uggs done. I’m send them to that website to do for me….

  71. Thanks Mikky! I haven’t heard Louboutin’s called Louis before lol! Only LV’s called Louis πŸ™‚ That’s cool! I’m glad you like them though! It takes such a long time to do it!

  72. So these are the Louboutins you talked about.oh my god they’re really beautiful, I love them! Wasn’t it hard to make?You must have a lot of patience.I couldn’t do this I think:D And thank you for the comment on my blog:) I followed;)

  73. Thanks Tina! It did take SO long! I actually haven’t finished one shoe, it’s taking a long time and I have kind of lost the patience right now to do it lol!

  74. Hello, Lorna.
    Gorgeous!
    I read your entire blog on your LB pink strassing project. I am impressed. I do have one question why choose GEMTAC over E4000? I will be doing some suede ballet flats in crystals in the next couple of months and I want to be sure of the type of glue that would be best because I do not want any mistakes. Please let me know what the difference is between the 2 glues. Thank you so much, and did you finish both of these shoes yet?

    Raye;-)

  75. Hi Raye!

    I’m glad you like my blog! Thank you! Good luck on yours! I only chose GemTac because it doesn’t have much smell to it, I’m very sensitive to strong smells and GemTac is low odour, the E4000 glue has quite a strong smell to it. If it didn’t smell I would have chosen to use it. But that’s my only reason for it. What colour are you doing yours? I am almost finished, I only have a small bit left to do on one shoe, it’s just finding the time to do it!;-)

  76. Hey, I would recommend doing the same size crystals as I did, I think Louboutin uses those sizes on most of his Strass shoes, it looks more realistic than one size all over πŸ™‚ Good luck with yours!

  77. Yeah you can, it works well with suede I think as it’s more porous. I haven’t done it myself though. But be careful with the amount of glue you use as the suede will absorb it.

  78. Hi kalpana, I still haven’t finished them yet, there are some crystals left to put on my left shoe. These shoes I’m actually saving for my wedding, even though I’m not engaged yet, I want them as wedding shoes, so I wont do an outfit post, but I will definitely show you them with a video or something!

  79. I am amazed with your work!!!!
    I was planning on doing it myself but I didn’t know if it would glue right
    Yours is amazing. Beautiful!!!
    I am from Brazil and I have a friend in US to buy me the crystal, would you give me the web where you bought yours???
    What bead colors would you suggest for NUDE louboutins???:)
    Tks

  80. Hi Rafa, Thank you! I got mine from the UK as I am from England. If you just type Swarovski flat back crystals in google, you will find a place by you that stocks them! For nud, I would suggest maybe AB crystals, it depends what colour you like though!:)

  81. LOL! I rarely wear open toe shoes unless it’s summer time, which it wasn’t when I took these, so that’s why. Plus I can only paint my nails outside because I have smell issues and nail polish is really bad on me for that. I admit painted toe nails look pretty, but not everyone has to have them. It’s not a must.

  82. Thank you Sadie πŸ™‚ It took a lot of hours so far, I honestly don’t know the total, but my estimate would be around 20 so far, maybe. I can’t really think lol.

  83. Where can we find the crystals? I am in Canada…so the only crafts store we have would be Micheals…maybe online??

  84. Hi Jessica! I listed quite a lot of places in the main text and in the comments about crystals. I bought all of mine online, I don’t live near a craft store so I got them at reputable stores online. Sometimes there are sellers on eBay that are certified and sell authentic Swarovski crystals. Try there?
