Color coding your keys

Sharing is caring!

Today I used a quick and cheap way to identify my keys for easy identification with nail polish.  I painted the top of each key a different color of nail polish.  You can paint the entire key if you want, but I like just painting the tops.

After the key dries, you can leave the colors the way they are or if you want to make them look edgy, add a crackle polish finish to them.  The crackle polish adds a cool effect.

When the crackle finish dries, finish up with a cover coat and let dry. The keys will all be color coded and hopefully, save you a little time next time you need to find your key quickly.

Brilliant! So much better than those rubber things I can never get on the key.
