DIY Glitter Bobbie Pins

In early high school my best friend and I used to draw each other pictures using nail polish. Neither of us were artists, so we stuck to elementary-level paintings: stick figures, sunsets, flowers, a still life of fruit in a bowl. You know, the basics. So imagine my déjà vu when I made these the other day:

A gift for yourself or for the girl who has everything, these DIY glitter bobbie pins are easy to make with supplies you probably already have.  

Here's what you'll need:
  • Bobbie pins
  • Nail polish (glitters or bright colors work best)
  • Clear top coat 
  • Piece of paper

Slide each bobbie pin onto the paper to keep the polish from sticking to the opposite side. Pick your polish and start painting. Let the pins dry completely between coats. Top off with the clear polish. I opted not to paint the bottom of the pins, as that part is covered when it's in your hair.

While I was painting, it occurred to me that this probably isn't the most original idea. After all, most women I know have bobbie pins. And nail polish. And the need to cure boredom from time to time. As suspected, I found similar concepts on the She's a Betty blog and on Pinterest. Oh well. Glad I'm in good company. =)
