    Time to polish with neutral cream or rennovator to spread the color out more evenly, just IMO.

    Never use neutral polish ... Renovateur yes, sparingly, occasionally.

    I prefer neutral cream (creme 1925) over rennovateur

    Not as sticky, and imo does a better job loosening old polishes (as long as same brand)

    Elfsberg - those are simply magnificent. and the bags are awesome. i see they have different ones for bespoke.

    curious question, any reason you did not go with metal toe taps?

    I actually went for another solution. If you look carefully can you see that I went for nails instead of metal toe taps..

    yes, i noticed that. sorry, i guess i should have been more specific. i meant why did you chose the nails over the taps. pros and cons?

    Its a matter of taste I guess.. Personally do I think that nails simply just look better... no other reason

    Wohooo Elfsberg, amazing shoes. I don't mean to be rude but may I ask, how much did they cost in Swedish krona and how long did it take?

    Best

    not gonna lie. I dont think i could ever wear them. I would probably get a glass trophy case and just put them in there. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL.

    Absolutely beautiful; congratulations on something really special.

    Now, I was raised to believe that talking about money is vulgar. But what is StyleForum if not vulgar? So, dare I ask, roughly, what this wonder has cost you, all in?[​IMG]
