|our toy cat (the only kind around here) modeling my cat-eyes|
I purchased my cat eye sunglasses last year from amazon.com (HotTopic brand) and was pleasantly surprised that my $10 purchase was not cheaply made. I believe it's now sold out :(
These glasses originally had no metallic tips... After seeing Alexander Wang's version I wanted to DIY my own, but wanted my metallic tips to be temporary in case I didn't like them. For this project I used Con-Tact paper (from Home Depot). Con-Tact paper will stick to plastic quite strongly, but still can be peeled off if desired. You'll also need a permanent metallic marker (mine is Elementz golden metallic from Walmart) and small scissors. Here is my photo-tutorial. Very easy.
While coloring my little piece of Con-Tact paper, I noticed my nails were in terrible shape. Why not paint my nail tips in metallic gold with the same marker?

EDIT: If you do try painting nails with a metallic permanent marker here are the steps:
1. Apply marker to your tips directly (without the basecoat).
2. Let it dry for a few seconds.
3. Apply two coats of clear nail polish.
4. This will come off with a nail polish remover.
