I’ve seen a few cool DIYs out there that take rhinestone jewelry and turn it into a custom piece using nail polish. It seemed like a straightforward project, so I thought I would give it a go.

What you will need:

  1. Rhinestone jewelry piece- I suggest it be cheap, no family heirlooms/super special pieces allowed. I got my bracelet for $5 at a local vintage shop.
  2. Nail polish of your choice, including a top coat.
  3. That’s it!

All you do is paint the individual stones…. Seriously, that’s it! All the other tutorials I read said not to worry about perfection, so I really didn’t either. And it ended up turning out great! I did 2 coats of color and then a top coat, making sure to let each coat dry before adding the next.

Of course if you don’t have the time/patience to DIY, you can just hop on over to Etsy and purchase a really cool, pre-made custom piece.

What do you think? Will you give this DIY a go?
