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?

Pin It!


  1. Cute and clever! Love how it turned out :)

  2. My friend tried this recently and it came out so great–as did yours! Love the colors you chose, too!

  3. Cute idea! Looks lovely!

  4. SOO pretty! I love how glossy the finished product turned out. You did an absolutely fabulous job! :) I don't have an iPhone but if I did I would make this!

  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!

  6. That turned out great! Love the colours you picked.

  11. 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 ;)
