The other day I found an old necklace in the bottom of my jewelry drawer. I was going to throw it away and then I realized I could reuse it. It was a medium length necklace with large chunky fake gems dangling from it in a chandelier fashion. The only issue was they were plastic and hot pink. Not exactly the first thing that comes to my mind when I say a statement necklace. Everything about it was great except the color of the gems. So instead of throwing it out, I decided to DIY it. I picked out two nail polish colors, one a slightly opaque white and a champagne color. I then went through and painted each gem. Some I made pale pink with the white, and others I did champagne. On the ones I wanted pink I did two coats of the opaque white, and the ones I wanted champagne I used a thick white for a base and then did a second coat with the champagne color. I sealed them all off with a top coat and cleaned up the edges with nail polish remover, and I now have a brand new necklace!
