Nail Polished Mug

I bought two of these  plain white mugs in South Korea when we were still living there.  I use it to put the  sponges from  the kitchen sink.  Last weekend, my daughter asked me if I can paint her nails, unfortunately, the  nail polishes are all getting so thick so I did not use it  on her nails.  I was going to throw it away but then I thought of letting my daughter paint the mug.  This is how it came out.
 
So there,  the newly painted  mug with nail polish.  It gave the plain white mug  some colors!

Ouvi dizer que pingar gotas de óleo de banana no esmalte o deixa com a consistência boa novamente. Fica a dica. beijos!
