I totally wish I could take credit for this but I can’t. I found it here. I’m so suprised that I didn’t think of this though because I use clear nail polish for EVERYTHING when I’m making jewelry. Dammit. Stupid smart people in front of me.
Anyway the tip is so simple! If you have sensitive skin (like me) that turns green when you even look at cheap metal, coat your cheap but pretty jewelry with clear nail polish. You’ll get more wear out of the piece itself and you won’t get that irritating mark from the metal.
