Earring Makeover

Today is Valentine’s Day.  Do you have any awesome plans?

I do.  I’ve got a fun dinner with my guys planned.  I hope they like it.  Heart shaped personal pizzas, heart shaped carrot slices, heart shaped garlic parmesan breadsticks, red Jello, red punch, and a heart shaped chocolate layer cake.  Mmmm…I can hardly wait!

Since today is the day of love, I thought it would be fun to have my Valentine’s day nails, and dress in red, white and black today.  (I need to match my Valentine’s Day décor!) I whipped up a red ruffle scarf…Ash is right…it’s insanely easy and fun!

I also gave my favorite earrings a makeover.

That was also quick and easy.  About a year ago, I got these cute, fun earrings on sale for a dollar.  Score!


But, they tarnished after just a few months.  I guess that’s what happens when you buy such expensive jewelry!

I remembered that (a very, very long time ago) one of my friends did her science fair project on rust.  She found that nails that were coated in nail polish (he he he!) didn’t rust, and others did.

That’s what sparked my idea for this earring upcycle.

I decided to paint them red with nail polish…


…and I just LOVE how they turned out!

  1. Great idea - and they'd be all shiny and lovely now too!!!

  2. I have a pair of earrings at home right now that would be awesome candidates for this! My favorite pair, but they started to tarnish. Problem is, the tarnishing irritates my ears. :/

    1. I've got ear sensitivity, too. When these earrings (and others) start to tarnish, I switch out the hooks. It's super easy, and it makes it so I can wear the earrings longer. Let me know if you makeover your earrings. It's a lot of fun! ...not to mention fast and easy! ;)


Thanks so much for taking a minute to let us know what you think! We read and appreciate all of your comments!
