Nobody likes a green finger...

I bet you're wondering what the heck this post is about, aren't you?

Have you ever had a ring that you absolutely loved, but that darn thing turned your finger green? (I feel like this is starting to sound like an infomercial, lol)

I recently told you guys how I bought a new ring that I really love (it looks like stackable rings, but it's not). I got it for $6--how can you beat it, right?
Tres cute!
Well, that sucker turned my finger green within 30 minutes of wearing it!

I was totally bummed, cuz I didn't even get to enjoy it for a full day before it started changing my skin colors. Drats! I thought about all kinds of things I could do to fix this problem (none of which involved NOT wearing the ring), and after a little Google search I found that one of my thoughts was actually right!

It's actually a quick, easy, and cheap solution if you have this problem.
Clear Nail Polish!

Coat the inside of the ring with a layer of clear nail polish. Let it dry and the voila! No more green finger.

Note: do not use Top Coat to do this. It chips off the next day when you wear it.
Ask me how I know this!

So, now you can buy all the cheap jewelry you want without having to worry about being mistaken for a relative of Kermit the Frog!

Problem solved :)


  1. Hahahaha! I LOVE this! And totally have a couple of rings I will be performing this little 'procedure' on. I'm always bummed when I find out that some of my jewelry (ahem, Charming Charlie/Francesca's) turns my skin Kermit colored, but never knew what to do about it! Thanks for sharing this Jenn - definitely a bit of advice I will be utilizing in the near future! After all, all of our jewelry can't be real;)

  2. hehe! this happens to me all the time! It's one of the reasons I have clear nail polish haha!

  3. Great tip, thanks for sharing.

    The ring is super duper pretty!

  4. Ooh, super tip! Definitely doing this!

  5. Glad to hear you figured out the problem. That ring is so cute. :)

  6. did I never think of that? Genius.


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
