Save your Rings

I read about this little tip months and months ago and after testing out the results I wanted to share this little idea with you!
Costume jewellery is the accessory of choice at the moment with loads of big brands doing really affordable and pretty jewellery but the materials used, particularly the metals aren’t designed to be worn repeatedly
If you own some costume rings you’ll probably know that during the hot weather or after continued wear they can end up like this..
This is the only ring, luckily, that’s tarnished but there is a super easy way of preventing this – just apply a thin coat of clear nail polish all over the ring (or just where the metal will be touching your skin) and you’ve created a barrier between your skin and the ring so you can avoid tarnishing!
This is so easy, and takes less than 5 minutes but since I’ve done this to all my rings I’ve not had any problems with tarnishing!

Let me know if you try this out and how it’s worked for you!

Hope this has been helpful!! x

This is great to stop rings leaving the tarnish colour on your skin! xx

i've always done this to my rings but i find that you still have to keep reapplying the polish every so often which can get a little annoying after a while! x

I knew about this but always forget to do it and then only remember when my finger turns green! Should put a pot of clear polish next to my ring holder!! XX

It also works on crystals from falling from the ring or any jewelries.
