As a jewelry maker, I work with lots of wire and chain and jump rings, and all of these things are like the evil villains that hate nail polish. When I first started working there in September, I still painted my nails sometimes. And you guys, I can chip my nail polish ridiculously easily anyway. If I click my mouse wrong, my nail polish will chip. It's pretty crazy. Jewelry making is not the friend of pretty colored nails. My nail polish would chip the instant I started to make a necklace and only get worse and worse throughout the day. And I like having pretty nails, but I hate painting them, because drying times force me to just sit and watch a movie or something, and as you may recall, I'm a multitasker. I was organizing my room yesterday and came across my nail polish. I have a lot of it, not as much as some people, but for never painting my nails, it's a lot.
But nail polish actually works as a way to personalize jewelry stuff and make it even cuter. I got a whole bag of broken/mismatched jewelry the other day and I intend to use all sorts of nail polish on it (in a way that looks good, obviously). And remember that cute jewelry box I thrifted that looks like it's missing something on the door? Well I think I can do something cool with white nail polish. So today I'm feeling pretty crafty. I might even do battle with my sewing machine! We'll see.
What creative uses do you have for nail polish?
