Martha made a cute Locket on her show today using nail polish and cute embellishments! It made me think of how many other things you could dress up with nail polish?? Picture Frames perhaps? See instructions below. Instructions and Photo via Martha Stewart.com
2. Take a locket and sand the center of the outside. This will allow the nail polish to “grip” to something. Wipe away dust with a paper towel.
3. Pour colored nail polish onto center of locket and fill area. Use the nail polish brush to pull the polish to cover all points on the face of the outside of the locket. The paint should come all the way to the lip.
4. While polish is still wet, use tweezers to place desired appliques on locket. Sometimes nail polish gets drawn to appliques, so you can add additional polish to shallow areas with a nail brush or toothpick. Let dry overnight. If nail polish drips on your appliques, wait until it dries and clean it up using nail polish remover and a cotton swab.
Resources Mandy Moore and Martha used large lockets from metalliferous.com. The rhinestones are from M & J Trimming. Nail polish and tweezers can be found at most drug stores. You can find sandpaper (we used 220-grit paper) at hardware stores.
