So, this one falls squarely into the obvious category, but it’s so fun, simple and cute that I wanted to share it. Lately I’ve been admiring enamel jewelry, but since I don’t own a kiln (yet!) I can’t DIY the real thing. So I decided to fake it using nail polish – even the least crafty lady probably has a drawer full of it.
I used Essie Absolutely Shore (love!) and Sally Hansen Commander in Chic . The round pieces are metal stamping blanks- you can buy them at most craft stores or online.
It’s self explanatory, right? A few notes: try to avoid air bubbles and pop any that develop in the surface with a pin right away. Also, leave the piece to dry for a full 24 hours before attaching it to the chain to ensure the the paint is completely dry or you might end up with with fingerprints visible on the surface. On the bright side, if this happens you can grab some nail polish remover and start over!
