I have been trying to make my outdoor patio a little more inviting. I found some dragonfly string lights at Goodwill but they were black and you couldn't see the cute dragonflies.
So, I went to the dollar store and bought some nail polish! I got a few colors plus a plain glitter. I ended up putting a clear top coat on the glitter just to make sure it could hold up with the summer weather. I took these pictures after they'd been up for over a month and they are holding up great!
Some of the colors needed two coats but it was still a really easy project. Now, my dragonflies are easy to see during the day and night. I love them.
Update - One year later and they still look great! I even left them outside during the cold and snowy Minnesota winter.
