DIY Neon Jewelry!

One of the biggest trends right now is neon-you are seeing it in everything from jewelry and fashion to home decor. I really love this new trend and I wanted a quick way to update my old jewelry for spring and summer! Most of us have some old costume jewelry that has seen better days, but if you don’t, thrift stores are a great place to pick up a few pieces for cheap. An easy way to upcycle them is by painting them with the fun neon nail polish colors that are out. It is a quick and cheap way to bring neon into your wardrobe just in time for summer! Just check out the before and after pictures of the jewelry I painted.

I especially love how the earrings turned out-they look like they are glowing! Let me know if you try it out!

  • I want to try this, but is there a trick to keeping the nail polish off the metal parts that you don’t want paint on? I love the items you painted and it has given me ideas!

    I really love the colors and they really can brighten up the jewelry alot. My granddaughter thinks this is magic because of the pictures. I am working on a necklace with spring flowers and she calls it her Magical Garden. These would really brighten up my Magical Garden.

    These are awesome! Did you seal them with anything to prevent the nail polish from chipping off with wear? I would love some slightly more in-depth tips.


    There’s no special trick to keeping the nail polish off of your metal settings and findings – just careful painting! And don’t worry, you can get rid of any stray polish with nail polish remover and a Q-tip.

    While these jewelry pieces weren’t sealed, it is a great idea! We’d recommend letting the neon nail polish dry completely and then spray it with a Clear Acrylic Sealer or paint it with a coat of clear nail polish.

  • Wow great idea, I can’t wait to try this.
