Use your white polish to paint the first layer (this helps the polish stick a little better and also makes the colors pop).



Let the white polish dry; we hung ours on shirt hangers to dry (this step will only take a few minutes. We painted all of the bangles white and by the time we were finished with them, the first ones were already dry).

Get started with your colors!! You can also use tape for this
step to do different designs if you want. We were able to make a straight enough line on colorblocked ones without tape. You may want to apply a second coat and don’t forget the edges. Use other colors to make polka dots, stripes, and other designs. Be creative!! Have fun!

Let bangles dry completely.


Apply clear coat (this helps keep color from chipping) Let clear coat dry. Wear and enjoy your adorable new bangles!!!
