Quick little tip: Brads

So, I'm sure you all already know this, but just in case you don't I thought I'd share this quick tip.

If you use brads a lot in your crafting than you've probably found yourself once or twice searching for just the right color.  I know I've been there.  I have orange but not red.  Or silver but not pink.  You've been there too, right?

If that has happened to you, did you know you can paint them?  It's true, you can.  Regular acrylic craft paints don't stick too well and will scratch but FINGER NAIL polish works really great.


Next time you are searching for a matching brad just pull out your finger nail polish stash and paint your own to match.  It works great and will save you a trip to the store.

Enjoy!

Brilliant is right on the money! I have been working with brads for so long and I never in a million years would have thought of this. Thanks a lot!!

What a great idea! I've thought of using paint, but heck, nail polishes are even easier to use because you don't have to clean up the brush!
