Thank you to everyone for all of your suggestions!!! The seller has made it crystal clear to me that she is not returning any funds as she stated she explained the damage to the shoe, I honestly don't believe that, this shoe has far more damage than the one picture given of it or the statement that it had a defect on one shoe. This is a side by side picture, picture on left is picture from seller on the bonanza listing and picture on right is my picture taken when I received them... You can see the difference in the clarity of just how much damage there was in my picture... But, I digress.... I have decided to try the DIY glitter and maintain this same beautiful color.. Hopefully this is something simple I can do myself yet keep the integrity of the shoe...thank you so much Vodkaine for the very very helpful links needed to attempt this challenge!! Thanks again ladies... I'll update on my results!
