Cheap and tacky magnets + nail polish make a nice accessory
I needed some blank magnets for another project, but when I went to the store there wasn't any, so the girl suggested that I buy theese smiley magnets and tear them apart and so I did.

I went home, took the magnet out of the plastic smiley and went on with my project. And later I was playing with the remains when it occurred to me that I could paint them as the Watchmen smiley. So here's my new project.
