Pink, Painterly and Polished

Pink, Painterly and Polished.  The three Ps.  Yes, the three Ps.  Oh, that’s not a thing?  Ok well look here, friend: If you have ten minutes, a vase and some nail polish you’re 100% qualified to take on this little DIY.

Look in your nail polish stash and pick a few colors that you like or that look good together, or preferably they meet both of those standards.

Grab that sad dollar store vase that’s been giving you buyer’s remorse (yes, even for a dollar) for months now and give it a wipe-down.  I used rubbing alcohol on a paper towel to remove all of the fingerprints and months worth light dust the vase collected.

Start with your lightest nail color and throw some random swipes on your vase.  Let dry for a minute or so.

Move on to the second lightest color…

And so on…

Ending with the darkest color you chose.

Let it fully dry for about an hour in a cool-ish area of your house and then fill that beauty with water and your favorite flowers!  Peachy carnations are one of my preferred picks and they perfectly complimented the pinks in my polishes.  Whoa how many Ps was that?

Has anyone else given a face-lift to a boring dollar store vase?  Or maybe you like to alliterate as much as me?  Do tell…
