#12. Painted Key

So after painting those bobby pins, I went a little crazy with the nail polish. In addition to painting my nails and my toe nails with some awesome designs, I also decided to paint my house key with nail polish. 
Unfortunately, I forgot to photograph my key before, but let me tell you, it was not pretty. When I became an age old enough that my parents thought I was responsible enough to have my own house key, they bought me a key decked out in an American Flag motif. I’m all for the land of the free and the home of the brave, but I think putting it on a key is a little excessive. I was like 11 at the time, so I didn’t really care. But as the years went on my beloved house key got used and jingled around in so many purses, the flag design had faded and I was left with and ugly gold/ flag mix.  
Time for a change. I didn’t really feel like spending the money on some fancy key and having it cut at the home depot, so I decided to paint the one I have. (P.S. Have you seen those Keytars they sell? A key with a guitar on top so it looks like the key part is the fret board? Too cute!)
Please note my awesome sauce manicure in these photos.
