{DIY}: Nail Polish Jewelry

DIY Nail Polish Jewelry

Hi Guys! Here is a quick and easy DIY (do it yourself) project to make some unique and colorful jewelry using nail polish! I bought some really inexpensive accessories from Forever 21 to make this project, but you could also use this idea to give new life to pieces you already own!

En Español- Hola a todos! Aquí les dejo con un proyecto DIY (do it yourself) sencillo y rápido para hacer unos accesorios únicos y coloridos usando esmalte de uñas. Me compré estos collares y aretes super baratos en Forever 21, pero también pueden usar esta idea para darle nueva vida a piezas que ya tienen en su closet.

DIY Nail Polish Jewelry

For this project, you will need:
  • A piece of jewelry of your choice
  • Nail polish

To make this chic Sunset necklace, you just need to follow 2 easy steps:
  1. Start by planning out what colors you want to use and test the colors together on a piece of white paper. That way you can be sure that you like the colors together.
  2. Then it is as simple as painting each stone with the nail polish brush. I used two to three coats of each color. Once you have finished painting them all, just let them dry for an hour or less and then you are....

All done!!




Para este proyecto, se necesita:
  • Una pieza de joyería de su elección
  • Esmalte de uñas

Para realizar este collar de atardecer, sólo tienes que seguir 2 pasos:
  1. Primero que todo, es importante planear con anticipación los colores que quieres utilizar. También es buena idea probar los colores en un pedazo de papel blanco para estar seguro de que te gustan los colores juntos.
  2. Después de eso, este proyecto es tan sencillo como pintar cada pieza usando la brocha del esmalte de uña. Yo use dos o tres capas del esmalte para asegurarme de que el color quedara brillante. Una vez que hayas terminado de pintarlo todo, déjalo secar por una hora o menos, y luego....
Ya terminastes!
