I ran into a peacock the other day. Well, I didn't literally run into a peacock, but I saw one while driving home from a friends house. It was gorgeous, and because peacocks are by far my favorite animals, inspiration struck.

After several hours and accidentally painting my hair green, these are what I came up with  Smiley

They got a little shiny from the sealer I used, but aside from that I really like how they turned out. They're by far the cutest $5 pair of shoes I've ever owned  Tongue

Those are lovely! Is the sealer sticky?

I think I'm jealous.  Those are awesome little flats.  I love the swirls you painted on the heels, too.

Thanks everyone!

Those are lovely! Is the sealer sticky?

No, the sealer isn't sticky at all. I used some clear UV resistant acrylic spray, and it's worked really well (aside from being shiny when the can said matte, but that toned down after being worn a couple times... Wink )
