Colorful bobby pins

I always wear my hair half up half down, so bobby pins are like my best friends! I wear them pretty much every day and it can get a little bit boring, but thanks to this tutorial I can "customize" my hairstyle a little bit and give my look a splash of color!
Siempre llevo el pelo en un medio recogido, así que las horquillas con como mis mejores amigas. Las uso prácticamente todos los días y a veces puede llegar a ser un poco aburrido, pero con este tutorial puedo "personalizar" mi peinado y darle un toque de color.

All you need is:
  • Bobby pins
  • Nail polish
  • Paper
Sólo necesitas:
  • Horquillas
  • Pintauñas
  • Papel

Fold the paper as shown below (not exactly in two halves) and "pin" the bobby pins into one of the edges.
Dobla el papel cómo se muesta abajo (no justo por la mitad) y "clava" las horquillas en uno de los extremos.

Choose your favorite nail polish and start applying a thick coat to the bobby pin. The reason why I didn't fold the paper right in the half it's because we now have like an extra piece of paper in case we paint too much. I'm obviously going for bright pink!
Elige tu color favorito y pinta una capa densa de pintura sobre la horquilla. La razón por la que no he doblado el papel justo por la mitad es porque ahora tenemos como un papel extra debajo por si nos salimos pintando. Yo he elegido un color rosa fuerte (previsible).

Let them dry well before wearing. You can also apply glitter to them!
Déjalas secar bien antes de ponértelas. ¡Tambíen puedes echarles purpurina!
