Hello everyone! I am here today with a DIY for you guys. I recently upgraded (finally!) my phone, and seeing how everyone in the house uses the same cable and charger, I decided to personalize mine to avoid confusion.
It’s such a simple DIY project but I am so in love with the results!
For this project, you will need:
- Nail polish color of your choice
- Top Coat (Quick dry or not)
- Magic tape or painter’s tape
- Tape off areas you wouldn’t want to get paint on, especially around the cable, you wouldn’t want to get paint on the connectors.
- Start painting thin layers until you are happy with the color/opacity
- Let dry for a few minutes and top off with top coat
- Let dry overnight
And here are the results:
Doesn’t it look so pretty?
I am utterly in love with the color <3
So as you can see, I actually painted the ends of the cable, I thought it looked kind of weird to only have a part of it painted. Also, in case you were wondering, I used a local brand of nail polish, OMG Crystal Sand in Emerald. I specifically bought this color for this project and I fell in love with it. It’s less than Php20 and it is such a pretty color. I topped off the adapter with a flakie from the same brand, just because I am obsessing over flakies right now and then I topped it with Orly’s Sec N Dry to smooth it out and to help it dry faster..
I also painted the plastic wrapping that comes with the cable, since it is transparent, and I use it to keep my cable tangle free.
You could use some glue and loose glitter for this, but for practicality’s sake, I think it is much more easier and cheaper to just use nail polish, there’s also less clean up to do afterwards,
Well, that is it for today, I hope you guys enjoyed this simple DIY project and I will see you guys soon <3
