break out the nailpolish
I found this super cheap ring from Forever 21 (I never go in there, but a friend mentioned it to me at Alt and I thought I would give it another try) and I fell in love with the design. But it needed color.

My paints and brushes were no where to be found so I pulled together the next best thing: nail polish and Q-Tips.

    Get your next color out and start painting the same way as the first. For larger areas like the one I painted red, you’ll definitely want to do several coats or nail polish to make sure its evenly covered.
