Pretty EasyI’d say this tutorial required care rather than skill. Rush it and it won’t work but take care and it will pay off. Mistakes are also generally easy to rectify.

Total CostIf you don’t already own clear sunglasses and the right coloured nail polish, I found the former at H&M for £4.99. The latter you can get for as little as £1 per colour but you may need to sniff around markets and look at kits from cheap shops to get the best deals.
They're unlikely to set you back £70 like the originals do – on sale!

Cut your sticky tape to cover up the lenses and areas on the frames that you don’t want to paint.
Paint your orange and yellow areas (or whichever other colours you want to use if you’re making a different version).
After the nail polish has dried, remove the sticky tape from your frames but not from the lenses just yet. Outline your orange and yellow areas in black, applying your nail polish with a cocktail stick.
Once the black outlines have become tacky, use your fingernails to tidy them up along the outside edges.
Fix your design by applying a protective coat of clear nail polish all over the frames. When it has dried, remove the sticky tape from your lenses.
