I didn't realize it would be so hard to photograph a pair of shoes so that you could see the actual shape. I''ve not taken shoe glamour shots before.
They are actually longer/sleeker and the toe more chisled than the pictures seem to show.
I'll post more pics when I'm done with the burnishing/finishing. It'll probably be a few more days to a week. I think I put down too much conditioner before I started the polish, as the finish is staying too oily - a sure sign. I put down six more very thin coats tonight (1 coat navy, 1 coat oxblood, 1 coat midtan and repeat). From here I'll just buff everyday with a t-shirt until they are no longer oily. Then add just a couple more coats of mid tan for mirror/depth.
Shoe shine therapy is good for the soul!
