So sorry for not getting this up sooner. I’ve been meaning to show off the before photos from the DIY project I finished last week. (Final photos here)
Brief recap: Wrote a piece on jewelry designer, Tom Binns, for Vault magazine -> Completely consumed with having a Tom Binns of my own -> Get sad cause my bank account says ‘hell no’ -> Stumble across DIY Tom Binns blog post -> Happy again with a plan.
After getting inspired by a few good DIY blogs, I headed to Forever21 to claim all accessories that sparkle. I ended up spending about $70 on over ten pieces and felt really good about my loot. Next, I headed to Ricky’s NYC for neon nail polish, but found the best neon polish at American Apparel. They have a three bottles for $15 deal, and the AA colors are on point. Check them out here.
All that was left was really just patience and a little creativity. I mostly used the nail polish, but I did end up using neon spray paint from Ace Hardware on the drop down earrings. Oh, and I spray painted the safety pins too.
Leave any questions in the comments and I’ll fill you in on any specific DIY questions. xx
