MINI POPS DIY...

Having seen these cute little bobby pins from J.Crew that I couldn't find anywhere in London, I did what any resourceful girl would do and made them myself. I painted all my favourite nail varnish colours onto the ends of some bobby pins I already had at home (3 thin layers is best). They look exactly the same as the bought ones!

They are adorable! When I was 12, my friend and I decided to start a business selling bobby pins we had painted with nail polish to our schoolfriends. Wasn't all that successful but now I realise we were on to something!

Ally - I had never even seen them with colours on the ends like that before. It must have been the 12 year old in me that needed them, right now, immediately. Apparently I missed out on this rite of passage!
