EASY TRICOLOUR PENDANT WITH NAIL POLISH

July 12, 2017

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.
