If you’re heading to a themed Christmas party this silly season, then we have a nail polish trick you are going to LOVE.
Thanks to Susan Carland, Q&A panelist and founder of SBS comedy show Salam Café, you will never look at cheap shoes or nail polish in the same way again.
The mum of two was invited to the premiere of Wicked, but the dress code was “cocktail with a dash of emerald”. The cheapest pair of shoes she could find were bright green and $110, which to Carland was unjustifiable.
Instead she bought some cheap shoes from K-Mart ($25) and a few bottles of David Jones emerald nail polish and made the most amazing shoes.
"Been invited to a fun event that has a "cocktail with a dash of emerald" dresscode. Can't find emerald shoes in stores. Closest were bright green for $110. Unjustifiable. Then, I had an idea. $25 white shoes from Kmart... #Cheapskate," captioned Susan Carland.
"A few bottles of sparkly emerald nail polish..... #CheapskatePart2," writes Carland.
We couldn’t track down the exact shade of polish Susan used online, but you can definitely pick up a couple of glittery, festive bottles from the bargain bin at your local chemist or Priceline.
Carland tagged the images with the #cheapskate hashtag, but we think they’re more #genius.
