You’ll need…

  1. A pack of bobby pins.
  2. Assorted bottles of nail polish in the colors of your choosing.


How to DIY:

Without removing bobby pins from cardboard packaging, paint both sides of pins with a coat or two of nail polish. The more coats of varnish you use, the more vibrant your pins will be. Let dry for 1-2 hours. Remove and wear…or gift!

*If you’re extra crafty, you can blend colors for an ombre effect, paint on stripes, or add some glitter to your pins. The possibilities are endless!
