Lifesavers.... get a HOLE lot more out of life
A couple of weeks ago I made a frivolous purchase of nailpolish. I haven't worn nailpolish for years, and have no intention of wearing it at the moment, but while waiting at the chemist, I just couldn't resist those colours. I was completely seduced by their point of sale marketing.
It's been sitting on the kitchen bench ever since... just waiting.
The eldest nephew was visiting earlier this week and he needed to make a gift for a friend, so I suggested that we make a necklace.
We used some really pretty silver chain and findings from my stash, and we painted a washer with the different colours of nailpolish to make a pendant.
When I posted this pic on instagram, Carmel mentioned that it looked like a Lifesaver, and it totally does too!
In a complete moment of serendipity, Cintia from My Poppet posted a DIY Neon Pop Necklace tute using nailpolish on the same day.
