Make Your Own Post Earrings

Hello, everyone, for my first DIY I thought I would do an easy one that started when I couldn’t find any post earrings that I wanted to wear for everyday wear.

  I used empty post earrings from Hobby Lobby and got out the ole’ bag of nail polish.  Then I stuck the earrings in a ball of poly clay to keep them upright while they dried.  I got out my favorite colors and dripped a few drops getting enough on so that there was a dome of polish on the surface.  After it dried it still caved in a little in the middle but I don’t really mind the look.  The dark purple was my favorite so far.

After it dried it was flatter than I had wanted so I repeated this step a couple times  After I made the purple and blue pair I was pretty happy with the results so I tried something a little more challenging.  I took some green loose eye shadow and mixed in in with clear nail polish in this bottle cap with a toothpick. (you use what you have handy!) I then used an old paintbrush to dab it on the same way as the first two.

(This looks like a face, I know!)

Here is the results:
