Yesterday at Target I noticed a few pairs of bright colored earrings. I didn't purchase any but couldn't stop thinking about the accessories. Instead of going out again to buy the earrings, I raided my own jewelry box. I had a couple of pairs of inexpensive earrings that could benifit from a color change.
I wasn't sure if I should use acrylic or spray paint. I looked through my paint inventory and didn't find any exciting colors to use on my earrings. In trying to decide on a color I realized I have so many bright colored nail polishes. I picked two colors that would make great earrings: Sally Hansen's Blue Streak and Elf's Fire Coral.
I used pliers to remove the hardware on the jewelry.
I painted the earrings with the nail polish brush. They took several coats of polish to be fully covered. I was careful not to apply the polish too thick because I didn't want to cover the pretty details.

I love how they turned out! Now I just need to find the perfect clothes to pair them with before the SNAP conference next week!
