Fun Sunday: nail polish jewelry

Hello loves and happy Sunday! I haven't done a Fun Sunday in a while now and that's mainly because I find it hard to come up with something interesting every week. But this week I'm really excited to show you what I've been doing in my free time (well besides nails obviously) for the last few weeks. I've seen this done on a few blogs and wanted to try it. A month or so ago I finally found a Romanian supplier that had what I needed, so I got to work. I won't write a tutorial just because there are already good ones out there and I just followed them. This one from Rebecca likes nails and this one by Chalkboard Nails are great. 

From left to right: Max Factor Fantasy Fire and W7 Metallic Jupiter
I started with these 8 mm stud earrings but I soon found out that they are too small and the effect on them is not that noticeable in real life. I still love how they look but now I bought 10 mm cabochons to make bigger studs. 

The cabochons after painting: Max Factor Fantasy Fire and W7 Metallic Jupiter
I also got some bigger cabochons and some ring bases to make rings. The rings are much more noticeable and I got a lot of compliments for them. 

China Glaze Atlantis
Orly Fowl Play
The ones above are 16 mm cabochons and they are a little flatter. I then found a seller that had bigger and more round ones. Those really have a magnifying glass effect to them. 

Orly Androgynie (20 mm)
Revlon Whimsical (18 mm) 
And my latest creation, of which I'm very proud of. 

NYX Carnival and Essie Cocktail Bling (18 mm)
I hope you liked my jewelry and may your Sunday be filled with fun and rest!


  1. I love these!!! You did an awesome job!! Of course Whimsical is my favorite, lol.

    1. Thank you! I'm glad you love them! And I know you have a thing for Whimsical hehe.

  2. Sunt excelente! Mihaela, te rog imi zici si mie unde ai gasit ce trebuie? Am cautat cabochons transparenti si nu am gasit :( si baza pentru inel e draguta :)

    1. Mersi mult! Cele mai mici sunt de pe si cele mari de pe Si eu am cautat o tona pana am gasit.

  3. OMG!! I don't know how I missed this post but OMG they look great! I especially love Whimsical and the last one is amazing! The ring setting is super cute too! You are doing a great job! I love them!

    1. Thank you! The last one is my favorite too. I have to come up with some new combos because I'm out of ideas at the moment.
