Just posted a new tutorial on About.com for painting with nail polish. Behold, my Disney nail polish necklace:
Nail polish enamel is a great way to add a shining finish to costume jewelry. I started the project out of necessity, a the original necklace had script that was small and hard to read. Here it is before the paint job:
The middle of the necklace is painted in OPI’s liquid sand, but the rest is just whatever decorative polish I had lying around:
I added sequins from one of the bottles of confetti polish to dress up the stars on the necklace:
The brushes on the polish bottles will likely be too large for your project, so I suggest using a toothpick for painting.
Just remember to be patient and apply a thing coat, beefing it up with additional coats only after the polish is completely dry.
