DIY: Nail Polish Striped iPhone Case


I've had a clear, neon pink iPod Touch case for months, but never wanted to use it because it seemed rather plain and boring. So when I saw this DIY on A Beautiful Mess I knew I had to try it.
 
It's so easy and took maybe twenty minutes to complete. All you need is a clear case and your favorite nail polish colors!

Just paint the nail polish onto the case in any order your heart desires. It doesn't have to be perfectly straight; in fact, I think it's unperfect-ness adds to the charm. I went over each color two or three times depending on the thickness of the polish.  
 
 
After the nail polish stripes dried, I went over the whole case with a thick coat of clear polish.
 
I love my new sparkly and super colorful case! It's so pretty!
 
What do you think?
Are you going to make one?

  5. Oh that's actually really neat! I have so much nailpolish, and when cases get scratched, this is a great way to re-use them for a little while!

  12. What a fun idea! It reminds me a little bit of Carrie's nailpolish purse in The Carrie Diaries. I have a clear black case for my phone and I think it may be getting a makeover now ;)
