DIY Coloured Jewelry

I recently saw a post on The Sparkly Life about how to make a DIY neon necklace. I loved the idea, tried it out and made myself some coloured jewelry!

Here's how I did it.

You'll need:
Nail polish
Any rhinestone jewelry. {I used my mom's. You can buy cheap ones from any shop or online.}
Cotton buds.
A paper or paper plate to keep the jewelry on.
 This necklace and earring set is ages old. It's definitely vintage and my mom wasn't wearing it anymore. Perfect for me!
Carefully paint the rhinestones with the nail polish, avoiding the prongs. If you get it on the prongs or any other part of the jewelry, use the cotton buds to wipe it off. 
 Two coats of nail polish give the stones a great opaque effect. Let dry and you've got yourself brand new colourful jewelry!
 How simple is that? I've even tried it on oxidised silver jewelry and it's great! Here's a necklace that I painted over with a pale pink colour
Since learning this I've dug out more vintage jewelry from my mom's treasure chest and I'm painting, painting, painting! Try it and let me know what you think of the idea!
