1. Remove the backing from your earrings, if it’s still there.

2. Slide your bobby pins on to a thin piece of cardboard and paint with nail polish. Some colors will require multiple coats. Clear sealant optional.

3. Once dry, remove from cardboard and select what color looks best with your earrings. For those not selected, you now have plain, colorful pins!

4. Apply E-6000 glue to the back of your earring, place, then hold. You’ll only need to hold the earring in place for 1-2 minutes, then it can dry on its own.
