Today’s colorful bobby pin tutorial is super easy! Chances are, most of you gals will have the materials on hand. All you need is:
- Your favorite color nail polish. (bright is best)
- The type of bobby pin you normally use.
- A piece of card stock or thick paper.
You’re going to want to slide your bobby pins onto the piece of card stock. You can use a regular piece of paper if you don’t have card stock. This is going to help to keep the pins from sticking together when you paint them. When you’re painting more than one pin in the same color, it’s ok if they are side by side on the card as you paint them. If you’re changing up the colors like I did in this photo, be sure to give yourself enough room to keep the colors from mixing.
For this project, I used COVERGIRL Xl Nail Gel Whole Lotta Guava 710 0.44 Fl Oz that I found on clearance at Target. If you use black pins like I did, make sure the colors you pick are really bright. I tried to do one in a dark purple, but the color didn’t show up as well as I would have liked.
As you paint the tops, don’t worry about getting the nail polish on the card stock. For some reason, when the polish is completely dry, the pins will slide off clean with no problems. Just remember that making sure that the polish is COMPLETELY dry is key. If you pull them off too soon, they will smudge or end up sticking together!
The result is so pretty, and nobody will ever know that you did it yourself unless you tell them!
