Recently while re-evaluating my jew box and wardrobe I found a pair of yellow gemstone tear drop earrings. I remember purchasing them several years ago on the cheap at Nordstrom Rack but for the life of me I cannot recall an outfit I wore them with! That's when I remembered Ivana's blog post on reinventing a pair of crystal earrings! She used nail polish to carefully paint over the gems on a vintage accessory and the results packed a major color punch! I followed suit to create these butter yellow and ketchup red earrings!
|Start with cleaned earrings, nothing is worse than painting |
a hair or dust bunny onto your new accessory!
|Paint 2 coats of polish on desired gems. I used OPI's Big Apple Red.|
|Repeat on both earrings....|
Let polish dry completely before wearing! Wouldn't wantanyone getting their hair stuck in tacky nail polish.
|Viola! One of a kind custom made earrings!|
