It's another edition of Glossies Made Me Do It with Erica and Ashley (check out their posts today!) If you want to join us, let me know, and we can start adding a link-up. Glossies Made Me Do It takes part the first Friday of every month. You take a magazine from that month and share a new DIY, recipe, review, or idea that you found from it.
For this month, I used the February 2017 issue of Parents. Yes, I subscribe to Parents. There are a lot of great non-mom ideas - plus I have a lot of kids in my life and it's fun to read things that might relate to them.
From this issue, I saw this little article called "Clever Ideas for Nail Polish" and I thought it would be fun to try one of these out! I got a mini bottle of orange nail polish for Halloween. I never used it but I figured it might be a good job for this idea!
I didn't want to spoil all the ideas, but the one that I chose to go with is last on the list: Paint phone-charger ends so you'll know whose is whose.
I don't really have a problem keeping track of my phone charger, but I still really loved the idea. It adds a little fun to the charger and it will help me keep track of it if I go on vacation with my family - since we all have our own chargers.
You can see some of the white underneath, but it looks a little better in person. I might have to go back over it once it dries!
Here's another shot of the charger with the nail polish that I used! I think this photo shows a side that's a bit darker, which I love.
I think this was a really cool idea and I do recommend it for people that live with their family or roommates. Or you could just get some younger kids involved and they might enjoy "painting" with nail polish. If you want to know other ways to use nail polish, check out the February 2017 issue of Parents Magazine. It's on sale now!
What do you think of this project? Have you used nail polish for anything other than painting nails?
