I dropped my phone a few days ago and my bumper broke. I didn’t want to spend anything on a new case so I went through my old cases and I found one where the design had chipped off. Earlier this morning, I was playing around with my nail polishes, but I can’t really have my nails done since I’ll be busy baking this week, and I thought, why don’t I just recycle my chipped phone case and repaint it using my nail polishes?
If you have some old phone cases lying around, you can definitely do this project. It takes about an hour and a half, including drying time.
Here are the materials I used:
- Old rubberized phone case
- Nail polish remover
- Cotton balls
- White nail polish
- Assorted nail polish colors
- Top coat/clear nail polish
And here’s the step-by-step guide on how I recycled my old phone case:
I’m actually using my case right now, and I’m loving it! (:
This can actually be done on plain-colored cases wherein you don’t have to paint the case white. I only painted mine white first to cover up the imperfections.
How would you design your recycled case? Let me know in the comments!
