We鈥檝e drummed up a couple of easy two-material聽hacks for you to make your wedding shoes completely customized.

Add a thin coat over the area that has the grips. Pro Tip: You don鈥檛 want to actually fill in the crevices with nail polish 鈥 it would make for a slippery disaster!

We covered the nail polish with a matte top coat. This is totally optional for the look you want to achieve. If you like it glossy, skip the matte.
