Color Coding Keys with Nail Polish

color code keys with nail polish

I may be crafty but I'm certainly not stylish.  I  bought this pretty shade of pink nail polish, but never have time to give myself a manicure.  When I do, I'm not patient enough to let it dry and always end up smearing and smudging the nail polish once it's on my nails.  Most of the time my nails just go unpainted.  I figured if I couldn't enjoy my favorite shade of pink polish on my fingers, I could enjoy it on my keys!

If you're like me, you have a lot of keys that all look the same.  You can buy color coded key covers (say that three times fast!) that help you identify your keys, but I love it when you can find a solution that doesn't cost anything.
