A way to continue wearing that cheap but lovable jewelry
So I know that I don't really care about that cost of Jewelry. If I like it and it looks cool, I'm fine if it only costs 50 cents. It doesn't matter to me if its designer or out of a quarter machine.

But, I HATE that little green line you get from wearing the cheapo rings, that rash you get from necklaces.

Well I know many people already know this trick, but for those of you who don't!

Its very complicated and intricate, and you may not find the necessary item...

Clear Nail Polish.....

:D

  • How to make a misc. Jewelry Turning Your Skin Green? Here's A Solution! - Step 1
    Step 1

    Alright, so as I said, this is extremely complicated! You get your nail polish, the clear kind, and you open it :D

    Step 2

    And now get your piece of jewelry.

    Take the nail polish and apply it to the inside of the ring, the part that touches your skin.

    Let Dry and Wear with pride :D

  • Step 3

    ALSO!!!! FOR OTHER THINGS. Not only does this work for jewelry, but its a nice polish for anything.

    Got a button thats been scratched? use the nail polish. Its a nice cheap alternative to Resin :D

    I've already used half the bottle and I only got it a few hours ago :D

    Fun :D

    EDIT!: l e t h a l i e asked a great question, one that I've been wondering myself. How to GET RID of that green circle.

    Well that ones actually stumped me, because I've got my little ring right there on my pinky finger and I've washed it and washed it.

    Well because of her inquiry, I've decieded to STOP being lazy and figure out HOW to get rid of it. And here is what I've found.

    Time. I've searched and searched on the Web, and Usually I'm considered the Google Queen, being that I can find nearly anything on google.

    Its been a day since I put the nail Polish on the ring, and the green is subsiding. I suggest just keep it mosturized and wash it thoroughly. :D

    How's that for a USELESS ANSWER?! :D

I <3 this trick. In high school i wore all the spiked jewelry (still do sometimes) but my skin if really acidic.. so much so that i rust ALL of my jewelry. So i eventually decided to put clear nail polish on EVERYTHING. It really works!

My mother taught me this when I was little. Also, you can use it to keep a rip in hose from getting bigger! :)

the green on your skin is actually a reaction to the base metals in the rings/jewelry. I have this reaction when I work with copper. Ie, I'm allergic to it. Most people are. It's nothing to worry about, it does go away with time, and limit exposure to the metal. (like painting it with clear nail polish.) Hope this helps

works perfectly!

just a hint - i find that dish soap gets that green tint off my fingers instantly. its like, grease-fighting soap i suppose and it is a little harsh but it's never cause me any issues! i wear multiple rings all day so you can imagine how my hands sometimes look ;)
