DIY From drab to FAB earrings

I saw these cute glitter bamboo earrings that Nadia was selling that she made herself. I wanted to purchase them the same time I bought these from her. I realized I had bamboo earrings of my own and even some glitter I could spare, so I got to work! I didn't mind experimenting on the ones I had because I didn't wear them often anyway.
To get this look this is what I used:
Old pair of bamboo earrings
Ibd brush-on nail glue (sallys)
Sally girl sparke effects (sallys)
Jordana nail polish in silver glitter (grocery store)
2 pieces of paper

I had the earrings flat on a piece of paper and brushed on the nail glue in small sections. Then, I sprinkled some glitter until the section was coated. I lifted the earring and transfered it to the other paper and brushed on the glue wherever I left off. Then, id gather the piece of paper I previously used and fold it so that all the excess glitter would come together and then I poured that over where the glue was placed. I kept repeating this process till the glitter was done and then I would add more. After one side was done, I let it dry for 30min or so and do the same to the other side. When both sides were done and dry, I went over it with the silver nail polish to "seal" the glitter.
from drab

to fab!
