How to Use Nail Polish to Upgrade Cheap Accessories
Ladies – listen up! We just came across the most AMAZING nail polish in all the land. Wait for it… it’s $2.90 and from Forever 21! This confetti nail polish creates an amazing bead-like texture on pretty much everything. We went nail polish crazy (everyone sure got upset over the smell in the office – whoops!) and gave three new pieces nail polish upgrades. We suggest that you scour around your house to find old shoes, belts, wallets or jewelry that could benefit from a coat of AMAZINGNESS – but if not head to Forever 21 and pick up some basics and give them your own twist!
– faux leather sandals
– liquid gold aka Confetti Nail Polish
It was hard to choose only three things to polish!
What makes us fall in love with this nail polish is the color scheme! Tan, black, teal, fuchsia – HELLO!! That will look bomb layered on top of any color!
Have more sandals that need an update? Solution: confetti nail polish. Notice how the nail polish looks different against the gray background – still awesome! We can’t get over the beaded look!
The small nail polish brush is perfect for tiny areas. We recommend layering it on top of old accessories.
Tip for clean lines – use painters or scotch tape!
*Spoiler alert!* – stay tuned for more amazing ways we will use this liquid gold.
Bezeled sandals call for patterned jeans for sure!
All-black is boring. Add some flair through patterns and bold lips!
