Glitter Painted Horses

Last week Miss B noticed a few dings and scratches on a toy horse she has.  She asked if we could paint spots on it to fix it and I suggested we take this project to the next level with glitter nail polish.  She shrieked in the affirmative and we were off.  Such a simple project and we were both thrilled with the results.  I'm not a huge fan of these plastic horses, but painting them to make them your own is a whole different story.

Plastic horses (thrifted or gifted)
2 bottles nail polish (one glittery, one pearl)

Equals a very fun time.

If you wanted to get real fancy you could paint swirls or designs or whatnot, but Miss B was quite happy with brushstrokes here and there, and I was happy to see her rocking out with her own technique.
