Why go plain when you can go colorful? Instead of those boring plain tacks, you can have a pretty colorful push pin just in minutes! All you need is a plain push pin (flat one works best), some nail polish, and a small bottle of nail top coat.


Pin the tacks on cork board or styrofoam to make it easier for you to color it. You can also stick it into an eraser if you don’t have any cork board. And then you can apply any color on its flat surface with nail polish brush. Pattern-free, stripes, polkadots, or whatever you please. Let the first color dry for a couple of minutes, before adding another colors. You can add small details like heart, star, or anchor with a toothpick or a nail art pen. After the whole design is finished, let it dry then give a thin layer of top coat to seal it and make it shines.


Here are some examples of the push pin we’ve made in candy colors and nautical theme.LL-pushpin-foto3a

You can even apply some nail art stickers onto the push pin if you want. Simple, quick, and lovely, with endless possibility of design. Go try it!

And as a bonus, we also made a short tutorial video. Thank you so much Hamam, Nady, Yudha and Aditya for helping us with the video. Enjoy :)
