DIY PAINTED JEWELLERY

Confetti Avenue by Charlotte Hartwell: DIY Nail Polish Painted Jewellery

In my summer wedding outfit post I mentioned that I DIYed my jewellery as I wanted it to match my shoes! So here is exactly what I did. It’s even easier than I expected it to be! All you need is nail polish and jewellery that has some kind of stone (plastic or cubics, anything works).

I chose an Inglot nail polish to paint a big ring, earrings, and necklace (I also painted my nails with the same colour). The rest of my jewellery I kept simple – just a few silver bracelets to match.

Then I literally painted the stones as I would my nails! Two coats of colour and one coat of a clear top coat (to make it extra shiny). It’s super easy but you do need to be careful not to get it on the metal, if you do, just wipe it off.

There you have it! I was so impressed with the results that I had to paint some of my other jewellery too!

With this necklace I was able to take the stones out using small pliers and paint them pastel pink and green before popping them back in again.

I even attacked a bubble necklace! It used to be completely white but now it’s red and pink too.

I’m definitely going to keep this project in mind for upcoming events. It’s quick and easy, and a cheap way to get perfect-colour matching jewellery.

    Awesome idea! I’m always stuggling to match jewellery for special occasions. I’ve got an engagement coming up soon and so going to try this.

    • Thanks, Fiona! :) I reckon it’s a lot less of a hassle DIYing it than finding matching jewellery as you just need really basic cheap pieces that you can make interesting and special!

  • It looks professional! your seriously amazing, <3
