Nail Polish Decorated Containers
Add some glam to boring plastic containers with sparkling nail polish. The gold polish is Wet n Wild Fergi gold ($2.99 regular price). The silver is Wet n Wild fast dry silver ($1.99 at my local store). I found that dabbing on the polish rather than brushing it improved the texture. I used two coats. For the first coat I made it really thick to try to get some additional texture. For the second coat I dabbed at the parts that had less polish. Make sure to let the polish dry completely. It took longer to dry than most nail polishes. I also found that the it was even more sparkly at night with the light on than during the day in natural light.
Nail Polished Shells
During one of my “time to update the decor” moods my eyes ended up falling on the basket of shells from my childhood. I was thinking I should get rid of them as they have gotten less and less attractive over the years, but it occurred to me that I have seen tutorials about painting shells with spray paint. I decided since nail polish is normally used for nails it was worth seeing how well it worked for shells. If it did not work I would just throw them out as I had originally planned to do. I used two coats of the Wet ‘n Wild gold polish. I wanted a little of the natural shell to show, but if you want to color it completely add additional coats. Let the shells dry between coats.
