Ring Revamp

 

My sister-in-law, Nikki, gave me a cool plastic ring awhile ago. It was brown, with a shiny, iridescent coating. Unfortunately, that iridescence came off, but I still like the ring. What’s my lazy solution? Nail polish! Here we have the ring “before”, along with the black nail polish, which will be the first coat.

I did not take a picture of the in between stage for some reason, but it was a beautiful, shiny black. Next layer: red glitter!!

Look at that sparkle! I left a little of the black showing through the glitter, but you could always use a third coat of glitter to cover that up, if you like. I love this, because it gives me all the bling of red glitter nail polish without having to actually do my nails! Lazy crafts for the win!

    This is like the 15th craft I’ve seen with that nail polish. Has it EVER been used on your nails? 😀

      Once. If you use it without a black under-coat it just looks garish, and also, I’m lazy. 😀 This is a much more cost-effective use for nail polish, wouldn’t you say?
