Don't you just hate it when one of your favourite pieces of costume jewellery loses it's lustre or the finish rubs off? Well here is a little tip for giving them a new lease of life, so easy and the variations are limitless.
Using your fave colour nail varnish or one to match an outfit, paint the offending piece
using the nail varnish brush or if finer work is needed an old eye liner brush or similar fine brush. You can paint a top coat over the top if you wish. Here I have used sparkle varnish and an iridescent pale turquoise to give an old favourite bee necklace which the gold leaf had rubbed off a pretty sparkly makeover and in real life it sparkles like mad! The varnish can be removed with remover and you can start over again if you wish with another colour.
