After watching the first episode of  “The Carrie Diaries” I knew I was going to make my own version of her signature bag! I chose to use a two toned clutch – perfect for Spring and Summer. The project is very easy to do and will take you no more than 15 minutes. Keep on reading if you want to learn how to make your own.
You will need:

1. Bag or clutch
2. Various nail polishes (don’t waist your Essie and OPI beauties and use cheaper alternatives!)
3. Something to protect the surface you are working on – newspaper, cloths or paper

Step.1 Choose your colors and get your nail polishes ready.

Step 2. – Lay out your bag on a flat surface. Use something to protect that surface you will be working on. I use old wrapping paper.


Step 3. Start painting your purse.

*Tip – using a brush turned out to be more time consuming than I thought so I just ended up pouring the nail polish onto the bag. Just be quick about it!

Step 4. When you are satisfied with the results leave it to dry for at least 8 hours.
I really hope you found this post to be helpful and fun!
If you decide to make your own “Carrie bag” make sure to let me know!

Stay Fabulous!

    In my opinion, You must mask your bag's buckle on the nail polish and then more would be nice.

    Имаш страхотен блог. 🙂 Не знам как досега не съм попадала на него. Идеята за чантата е страхотна. И аз се канех да си направя такава чанта след като гледах Кари и сега след като си го обяснила нагледно нещата изглеждат по-лесни за направа. 🙂
