Nail Polish Upgraded Necklace

Hello lovelies!  Well, summer is here!  Not on the calendar, but this heat wave is more than welcome if you ask me!  We’ve been having a ton of fun here in the city, with patios and beaches and baseball games.

I love how summer makes bright colours appear, both in nature and in fashion.  And one of my favourite fashion accessories is my blue statement necklace.  If you’ve read any of my Style posts, you’ve definitely seen it before, but here it is again.img_1713202_zpsgai4cwwp

I always get compliments on this pretty necklace, and I love how awesome it looks with a cute dress or a t-shirt.  However, I’ve always wished I had a pink one – seeing as it’s my favourite colour.  So recently I broke out my favourite pink nail polish and decided to make my sweet necklace *~reversible~*.

Super simple:  I used white nail polish (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On) as a base to avoid the colour bleeding through the translucent blue discs.  Then once that was dry, I used my fun pink (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Pink Punk) to carefully cover the white.  Here’s the end result!img_1715_zps20diixua

And in case I’m feeling a bit whimsical, I can wear it blue with a pink accent teehee!img_1714_zpsm0dkycy9
