If you can ignore the back ground, I think the project came out pretty cute. I had been looking for a good maroon necklace to wear to football games (Whoop!) and couldn't find one that wasn't too expensive. So I decided to paint an old necklace with nail polish.
I didn't have the right shade, so I mixed purple, red and a little brown in a tin foil cup I fashioned. I gave it a couple of coats and let it dry overnight. Its surprisingly durable, and the finish didn't scratch at all. Tip: use the nail polish brush that is the fattest and largest so you don't see the brush strokes. The OPI brush was the worst one, too skinny.
