I have a set of 3 pyramid style rings that I really love. I got them at Forever 21 and probably only paid 3 bucks for them, but they turned green after just a few wears! I got to thinking about how I could still wear these rings without having the gross green bronze color showing when I wear them, and leaving residue on my finger. Cue this idea!
All you need is some old rings, your favorite color polishes, and a top coat! Here's what you do: 1. paint your rings a layer at a time, laying on the cloth napkin to dry in between coats. 2. Paint until you achieve your desired color (mine took 3-4) coats for each color. 3. Once the final coat is dry, add your top coat and allow to dry for at least 30 minutes before wearing. That's it! Super simple, but such an easy way to give old rings a new life. 
Be sure to take your rings off before wetting/washing your hands because I am sure over time it will wear down the paint.  Bonus: this is so quick and simple  that you could easily remove the paint with polish remover and paint a new color on. The possibilities  are  endless! Have fun! Also, this is a messy project, see my fingers below.


  1. So SMART! Why have I never thought to do this? I am so trying this. xx. McKenna Lou
