Jenni of I Spy DIY here with a super easy and glittery tutorial sure to make your summer accessories shine!  Take a cue from the ultimate Glamour Girl, Jennifer Lopez, and add a little sparkle to your cat eye shades by painting glitter polish onto each corner.

Materials:
Black Plastic Cat Eye Sunglasses, Silver OPI polish, Wet and Wild Glitter polish, Clear Top coat.
1. Paint a silver base on the corners of your sunglasses. If you need help to make the two sides even, use a silver sharpie to draw guidelines.
2. After letting the base coat dry, paint a second coat with the glitter polish to give it a sparkle.
3. Finish by painting a clear top coat to keep the paint from chipping and let dry.

Add extra shine with JLo’s earrings by BaubleBar, believe it or not, only $52!
