I read about a way to paint clear glass ornament bulbs using nail polish and water and thought I'd try it out. I think the results are interesting and a pretty ribbon should make a nice ornament. However, I do not advise doing this in an enclosed space. A couple hours of leaning over several open bottles of nail polish left me feeling a little out of it. I wish I could use that as an excuse for the less than stellar photos, but I have to blame my mobile camera and our dark house.
