Faux French Lockets
by InstaCraft Follow

French lockets are beautiful, but pricey. Here is a way to make hundreds of them for under $10. All you need is a little bit of Essie!



  • Opt for an opaque nail polish (my favorite is the navy No More Film from Essie).

    This is great if (like me) you have a friend with a signature nail color.  She ALWAYS wears the same pink.  Now all I have to do is sneak a peek at the color name, match it and go.  A guaranteed successful gift

    I have been unable to locate the plain lockets. Supplier ideas please.

    I usually get mine off of Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/31327748/vintage-large-oval-plain-raw-brass...

    Or, if you happen to live in Brooklyn like me, try Brooklyn Charm.
