Nail art earrings and other stuff!

Remember when I showed you those little wooden pendants my dad made me?? Here they are pictured on the left.  IMG_1560Well, I finally painted them with nail polish!   I like to call them my nail art earrings. 🙂  I painted them using all Essie winter shearling colors and I also used a bunch of easy nail art techniques.

  • I painted them in three Essie colors
  • then used a dotting tool to do some dots on one side
  • used my MoYou stamping stamper and pro plate to decorate the other side
  • swept on some clear polish and placed a line of rhinestones
  • then I finished it with a coat of sally hansen topcoat

essie earringsIn case you are laughing at them, yeah I know.  They’re a little ‘busy’.  But in my defense, I wanted to try different nail art stuff on them … it’s my first nail polish & jewelry experiment!  They came out cool and it was a lot of crafty fun.  I def wanna do this again!  If you don’t have pendants like the ones I used then maybe you can find some earrings laying around that might work.  Or maybe the dollar store near you has some cheapo flat earrings that could use a fresh layer of nail polish!

This was a fun project for me, especially since I can’t paint my nails right now.  I am actually wearing some Incoco collage 3french manicure nail strips right now and I wanna see how long they last. I am loving them.  They look so great!  Here’s a sneak peek!  What a perfect french mani, right?  They are wearing really well.  No signs of chipping yet and I’m on day 6!  So in lieu of painting my nails for 6 days… I painted some earrings!  Oh, and I also made some diy nail decals using some of my cheeky and moyou stamping plates.  They came out so cute!  I made little yellow happy faces, multi-colored hearts, and little teddy bears!  Hopefully I can play with them soon.  I also have some news for my giveaways…..

  1. Gosh, I’ve never thought about painting wood with nail polishes… it sounds awesome and it is!!! Well, I will paint my keys first (because they’re quite boring), then who knows…
    Well done, the multi details are perfect together 😉
    xoxo and have a nice weekend

  2. The earrings look so cool and not busy at all imo :O :D. I had one of my small earring chipping off all the small rhinestones it had, so instead I painted it with a textured nail polish 😀
