It's been a while. If you are following me on Instagram or Twitter, you probably know that I love participating in Fat Mum Slim's Photo-a-day Challenge. I wanted to share with you one of my recent posts. It is for day 3, Key! I own a lot of nail polish, so I always try to find new ways to use them. If you own a lot of keys, this may be a good way to help you find certain ones from the bunch. Especially, if you own a lot of copied keys that tend to be the same color and shape.
I've been color-coding my brushes, pens, keys, etc. with my old nail polish for a while now. I would like to share this tutorial with you. Plus, it's another reason to paint, and that's always a lot of fun!
Materials you are going to need are:
Old or new nail polish: I used red, pink, green, white, & a pale turquoise
A clear sealer or a top coat
Fine grit or medium grit sand paper
Roughen the surface where paint will be applied.
Place two coats of polish, or until the surface is even.
Place a dot of pink and a dot of red beside each other and swirl the paint together. Make sure you create a pattern by not completely blending the two colors.
Take some white and lightly swirl it on top. Then, place some green leaves as an accent.
Let the polish dry for 15 minutes. Then, apply a layer or two of a clear sealer or a top coat.
You may apply a coat of sealer every few months or so, to keep the polish from chipping. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Here are some of my keys:
Have a lovely day!
