I was cleaning my cupboard (as I do on most Sundays after throwing clothes in and out during the week) when I found about 3 pairs of sunglasses I don’t wear anymore. One were too retro for anyone’s liking, another pair I bought in a slightly drunken tizzy from Colaba Causeway and the third were chewed up by Blue, my friend’s Labrador.

I contemplated passing them all on to the house help, who I know would break into a Govinda-esque dance of joy. The retro ones were given away but I had a super idea to make the silly Colaba ones better. Here’s how you can bling your sunglasses too!

Slow and steady...
Slow and steady…

1: Pick a pair of sunglasses that you might be bored off or just buy a cheap pair off a tapri. The ones at Colaba causeway are decent. A thumb-rule while buying a pair of these is to never pay over Rs 150. Wipe them clean and dry.

2: I chose to bling my peeper safe-keepers (I’m trademarking that) with silver nail-polish. You can use fabric or acrylic paint, crystals, ribbons…the choice is endless. Carefully paint around the frames making sure both sides are done neatly and evenly.

All that glitters!

3: Wait for the paint to dry completely and then coat it with transparent nail-polish. This evens out the paintjob and gives a glossy finish to the glasses as well.

4. Lo and behold! You have a pair of revived sunglasses ☺

Try stripes, roll ribbon around the stems or add rhinestones. It’s quite simple so Y U NO DIY!? Try some other options and do remember to share them with us.
