Yes, I'm still highly addicted to the neon trend - especially when it comes to jewelry! It looks so fresh and modern and really makes the simplest outfit pop.
Last week, I was contemplating buying this baby from Zara, but never pulled the trigger. So imagine my surprise when I stumbled across a new style blog - A Girl, A Style and her DIY neon necklace tutorial!
It's so simple and looks just like the one from Zara, if not better!! The best part? It doesn't cost a dime!
So how did she do it?
1. Rummage through your necklaces and find one that can use some updating.
2. Choose an opaque nail polish. (The one featured is Nails Inc. in Wimbledon, a pastel neon yellow.)
3. Clear top coat.
Make sure to lay it over paper before you start so you can catch any drips. Carefully paint each stone like you're giving yourself a manicure (2 coats is best). Wait 10 minutes, then finish off with a clear top coat, letting it dry overnight.
This is so easy!! I'm definitely inspired to try this on one of my necklaces, how about you?
