  • What a great idea to use up old nail polish


  • They look so cool all shiny with the nail polish. Lots of these added to your garden would be fabulous


  • Great way to make your rocks colourful

    • Different way to colour them instead of paints


  • The stones look fantastic when painted! Well done!


  • You are so clever. What a fun idea with great results. You can use up those old nail polish bottles you no longer use. Thank you.


  • So very cute! My daughter will love this!


  • that is good attempt to give shot. I will try


  • This is pretty cute! Love the idea and thanks for sharing it :-)


  • This is a great idea! My littles love to collect rocks when go to the beach but never do anything with them after. This gives me some great ideas to kill two birds with one stone (pardon the pun)!


  • Thanks for sharing this cute and creative project; looks like a lot of creative fun!

    • We have some nail polish to use up this coming weekend.


  • you could make heaps of cute designs with the stones. great post

    • yes you can get $2 nail polish all over the place.


  • My step daughter will love this idea


  • These look so cute. We’ve done rock painting before, but with regular kids’ paints so they look a bit dull and washed out compared to these, with the bold and glossy colours. I don’t paint my nails, but am sure I could pick up some polish cheap at the $2 shop!


  • absolutely love this idea, great to put pebbles in some plant boxes, would look so pretty, ideas are endless, thanks for sharing


  • So cute! A fun little activity to do on a rainy day!
