DIY: Neon Necklace

Neon Necklaces


Lately I've been in the DIY mood. Maybe it's the heat that makes me want to stay indoors and get all crafty. Either way I'm loving this kick that I'm in. After seeing a bunch of bloggers (aka Going West, Sorelle in Style) doing the DIY neon chain necklace I decided to give it a whirl myself since I have been lusting over some pretty expensive ones.


This is another simple little DIY project. All you need is a cheap crystal necklace and some neon nail polish!

What I used:
-Claire's Necklace
-Claire's Neon Nailpolish (scored them on sale buy 1 get one 50% off)

Steps:
Start with one coat of nail polish paint on the crystals going all the way around the necklace.
Add extra coats a paint to really make the color pop.
Wait for it to dry! BAM your own Neon Necklace. 

What I love about this necklace is that it adds a nice pop of color to a simple look. It really makes a statement all on its own without being over bearing.

What do you think about this DIY? Would you give it a try?
