Lovely DIY Designs (wk 10)


If you are new here then let me just quickly explain that Gina from AcuteDesigns and I, 
find a project to re-make based off something we find from pinterest!
To catch up on our previous posts within this series check out this link.

This week's pinspiration is restyling jewelry with nail polish.


I wanted to give my peices a fun holiday re-style so I also used
this glitter board for a bit more inspiration!


There really are only a few supplies needed for this:
-nail polish-
-clear coat sealer-
-jewelry-



I grabbed just a couple of my favorite glitter polishes
 and a few pieces of jewelry that really needed some help!
If you want to try this and don't have any jewelry to spare, 
check out dollar tree for cheapy earrings & bracelets!.


As you can tell from all my previous posts in this series, I go for easy!
Now this is way easier then painting your own nails, so I know you won't shy away.
There really is no right or wrong, no rhyme or reason.
Just paint what you want where you want!





I coated both pairs of the earrings with 2 different types of glitter.
The first pair you can still see the design through and the second pair I completely revamped
with the prettiest shade of autumn inspired gold!

If you want to try something fun and funky you can even get a bigger palette to work with, 
like a chunky bracelet and draw a design or write out a word.
I kept mine simple with a few x's and o's {love} !!



When you are finished just clear coat.
This project is an easy way to re-vamp old stuff to give your wardrobe a new look!

  9. Funny that you post this because just yesterday I saw on Pinterest where someone used nailpolish on a basic bobby pin to give it color/pizazz so I did it myself last night. I used an aqua/teal color polish and love the way it turned out!
    I would not have thought of the jewelry route. Yet another reason I love blogging and Pinterest:)
