Today's project was a total experiment. I had no idea what to expect or what the turn out would be. But I had a leftover pendant from a previous necklace project, and nail polishes that I didn't wear all that much, so I decided to put the two together and see what would happen.
For this project, I used three nail colours, a silver pendant, and a lollipop stick.
Using one nail colour at a time, I poured a little out of the bottle into the pendant. I did this for all three colours, ensuring that the bottom of the pendant was completely covered. Then I used the lollipop stick to blend the colours together in the centre, moving it in a circular motion.
Once that was finished, I simply let the pendant dry for a couple of days (out of the sun). It actually turned out much prettier than I thought. There's no bubbling, the surface is smooth and shiny, and the colours are beautiful. To finish it, I took a cotton swab, dipped it in a little bit of nail polish remover, and cleaned up around the edge on the front of the pendant where a little nail polish got on.
If you are curious about the colours I used in this project, the nail polish is Crabtree & Evelyn in Beauty Berry, Lilac, and Orchid. The pendant was purchased at Hobby Lobby.
Total working time: about 5 minutes.
What do you think of it? If you repeat this project, think of all the pretty colour blends you can achieve. This will also make a nice gift, and it's very inexpensive too.
